Governor Ayade made this disclosure during a meeting with Heads of Commercial Banks and financial institutions operating in the state, at the Exco Chambers of the Governor’s Office in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.

The Governor also noted that other investments to be established will be in the petroleum sector, pharmaceutical sector, marine transport, poultry and afforestation; all geared towards creating numerous job opportunities for unemployed youths in the state.
