Buhari Uniting Nigeria Through Road Construction –APC Lobby Group

Posted on April 20, 2022

The All Progressives Congress, (APC), Youth Lobby Group in Cross River says President Muhammadu Buhari is uniting Nigeria through road construction.

This followed the construction of the new Ikom Bridge and speaking about the bridge on Tuesday in Ikom, Asuquo Ekpenyong, a chieftain of the party and the group’s Representative in the state, said the bridge was one of the most important investments in the South-South zone of the country.

Asuquo, a Commissioner for Finance in Cross River said the bridge was a remarkable piece of investment.

“This bridge has made the movement of tankers and other articulated vehicles coming from southern Cross River to the central and northern parts of the state easy.

“Before now, vehicles from Cross River go through the south-eastern states  to access the northern parts of the nation but with this bridge that is a thing of the past, cutting travel time.

“Apart from investing in the Ikom bridge, the Federal Government at the moment is dualizing the Odukpani/Itu road and putting in billions in the construction of the second Niger Bridge.

“These infrastructures are life wires of the eastern and southern states of the nation,” he said.

According to him, “people say development follows votes. If that theory was true, there shouldn’t be this level of infrastructural investment going on in Cross River.”

He noted that for 16 years successive administration in the state abandoned projects even though the party in power at the national level (PDP) was also in power in Cross River.

“Even though Cross River was not an APC state, the APC-led Federal Government kept sentiments aside and did what was best for the Nigerian people.

“This is a testament to the leadership of President Buhari and the competence of the Minister of Works Mr. Babatunde Fashola and his team in the Ministry of Works.

“I think that with the level of investment that has been put down, the people of Cross River should start considering APC in the forthcoming general election,” he said.

Ekpenyong urged residents of the state to “join and support the party. If they could do all these for Cross River, which was a non APC state imagine how much more they would do when they truly joined the party.”
