FG to prioritise superhighway, Bakassi seaport in 2022, says Ayade
He stated this yesterday at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport, Calabar following his visit to Abuja.
Expressing delight at the outcome of his meeting with the presidency, Ayade said: “I had a wonderful session with the presidency and I want to announce that the presidency has shown a very strong commitment to the Bakassi Deep Seaport and the superhighway, which is basically the core reason of my being in Abuja for this long.”
Restating his vision for the projects, Ayade said: “Again, I would like to stress that my ambition is to take the Atlantic Ocean closer to Northern Nigeria to allow them the benefit of taking full advantage of solid mineral deposits that abound in the North. Unfortunately, the huge mineral deposits will remain unexploited as far as there is no access to a maritime corridor.
“So, the Bakassi Deep Seaport with an evaluation corridor through the superhighway creates a great opportunity for Northern Nigeria to have a bliss and an opportunity to have a gateway into financial freedom.”
