Cross River Governor Bassey Out has directed the reopening of the Marina Resort, Calabar two months after a boat accident that occurred at the leisure centre.

According converseer.com, the directive was contained in a statement signed by Emmanuel Ogbeche, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor on Wednesday.

Recall that Otu ordered the closure of the leisure centre on June 26, following a boat mishap that capsized with medical students on June 24.

The boat accident claimed the lives of 3 students who were seeking fun following the annual Medical Students’ Week held in Calabar.
