The media team of the All Progressives Congress has called on President Muhamamdu Buhari for urgent attention of the Calabar-ITU highway which is presently in a shameful condition.
APC’s Official Twitter Account of Interactive Mobile Internet TV/NEWS Channel tweeted: “Dear President @MBuhari, this is Calabar-ITU highway as at today. Urgent help needed”.
Two weeks ago, Dr. Amadu Atai, State Chairman, of the All Progressives Congress in Akwa Ibom State called on the Federal Government to urgently dualise Calabar-Itu highway, as the project had been captured in the 2016 budget.
Earlier, the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has called on the Federal Government to rehabilitate the Calabar-Itu Road to save it from golly erosion which is seriously threatening its existence.
The governor made the call when he inspected one of the erosion sites along the road.
Calabar-Itu road is a Federal Road and the only major link between Akwa Ibom and Cross River as well as a gateway to the north.
