This strategic move was aimed at creating room for development initiatives, reflecting his steadfast commitment to putting the people first and delivering the dividends of democracy to all, whether indigenes or residents.

But the vision didn’t stop at an airport. Governor Otu divulged plans to construct a state-of-the-art railway connecting Calabar to Obudu, an ambitious venture designed to address the pressing transportation challenges facing the state’s inhabitants. With enthusiasm, he emphasized the importance of this project in alleviating current transportation woes and expressed his determination to ensure its successful completion during his administration’s tenure.

“While my administration is mainly focused on completing existing projects from 1999 till date instead of embarking on new ones, the construction of this railway line is crucial to alleviate the current transportation issues in the state,” Governor Otu declared.

The governor further highlighted his government’s commitment to transforming Cross River into a transit hub and evacuation corridor. An Irish Aviation Company has been attracted to establish and operate an Aviation Training School in Bebi, Obanliku, with a remarkable promise—the state government will cover the full tuition fees for all indigenes enrolled in this institution.

With unwavering dedication and a clear roadmap, Cross River State is poised for transformation. A staggering N3.7 billion has been allocated by the State Government to ensure the Obudu Cargo and Passenger Airport’s timely completion. This ambitious endeavor represents a significant step toward the goal of making Cross River an aviation hub, and the governor’s words resound with a commitment to deliver on this vision.
