President Muhammadu Buhari’s scheduled visit to Cross River State on the 21st of September, for the groundbreaking of the 260km dual carriage way has been postponed.

Contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Mr.Christian Ita, said the decision to postpone the ceremony was communicated to the governor in a letter by the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari.

The statement said the Presidency attributed the shift to a letter written to the President by the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Environment, Nana Fatima Mede, in which she claimed the proposed highway, if allowed to go on, would cut through the Cross River National Park.
