Chinese firm designs Deep Seaport for Nigeria’s Cross River


The governor of Cross River state in South South  Nigeria,  Prof. Ben Ayade, has received the concept design for the full commencement of construction work on the proposed Bakassi Deep Seaport, from a Chinese firm, China Harbour Engineering company.
 
The designed was presented on Monday by a team of Chinese engineers led by Mr. Jason Wang in Calabar, the state capital.
 
Ayade, who presides over the tourist state, promised that full-scale construction work would begin as soon as the rains subside.
 
He said that one of the special features of the Bakassi Deep Seaport is its access to the 275 kilometres evacuation corridor which connects to some other states.
 
Ayade said that the people of Cross River State have focused on creating an alternative income by decoupling their dependence on Federal Government allocations.
 
“It is against that background that the Bakassi Deep Seaport with an evacuation corridor is borne.
 
“The special advantage of our Bakassi Deep Seaport is its access to a wide armada of great opportunity via her evacuation corridor,” the governor said.
 
He called on the people of Cross River State to rise beyond the boundaries of politics and focus heavily “on the future of our young people”.
 
He assured that with the commitment of will and the prayers of everyone, this noble project would come to its realization once the government, which is the client, gives approval to this, and “a detailed design will be ready in no distant time at the onset of the next dry season”.
