How Calabar-Ikom highway has turned to a dead trap



The Calabar-Ikom highway keeps begging for attention due to its impassable state yet nothing seems to be done towards bringing to an end the pain and agony it has caused commuters.
Here is a report from CReporters:


It is even more saddening when I realise that, sometime ago, we had one of the most powerful Senate leaders in the history of Nigeria from Cross River, One of the most Closest Governors to the then President, Goodluck Jonathan, one of the most influential Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation. And our State was also blessed to be in-laws to the then President, yet none of these people deem it fit to leverage on their privileged positions to push for the complete rehabilitation of the road yet it is the same road leading to their various Local Government and domains. This is really really sad.
What about now! We have a Government that promised us CHANGE and as God will always have it, we have a good number of our Sons and daughters as integral members of the CHANGE movement.
We have Chief Okoi Obono Obla as the Special Assistant to the President on Prosecution, Pastor Usani Uguru Usani as Minister of Niger Delta, A Chief of Naval Staff, Chairman,board of the NDDC, Vice Chairman,South South of APC,not forgetting the seeming relationship that exist between Governor Ben Ayade and President Buhari etc yet, nobody seems to be talking about the road.
Guess what most of them do these days? They fly from Abuja to Enugu just to avoid the bad road, leaving me and you to bare the brunt. I don’t know what else to called wickedness other than this.
My prayer is that the souls of our brothers and sisters who have loss their lives on that road find peace in the bosom of the Lord even as I pray that the Lord God of host touch the hearts of those in position to fix the road. It is one death too many..
Vehicle falls inside federal road at Iwuru in Biase LGA, Cross River State.
After over two weeks of advocacy, newspaper publications and TV shows, the government have failed to intervene in the Biase Calabar-Ikom federal highway. Currently, the hold up in that area is compared to none as motorists and passengers have been stuck inside their cars for over 4 hours.
