The Cross River State government has commenced the allocation of land at it’s industrial park along Goodluck Ebelle Jonathan bypass in Calabar free of charge to investors willing to set up factories.
A statement issued in Calabar by the Chief Press Secretary to governor Ben Ayade, Mr. Christian Ita, said the industrial park is fully serviced with water, street lights, free WiFi, good road networks and drains as well as electricity.
