Cross River state governor, Senator Ben Ayade has explained why he is not interested in expanding and upgrading the Bebi Airstrip near the Obudu Ranch Resort to an international passenger and cargo airport, saying the strip is nestled in a magnetic mountain with high accidents rate.
The governor disclosed this while hosting the Cross River state Chairman of the Nigeria Labor Congress NLC, Comrade Ukpepi who paid him a courtesy visit at the government house recently. The governor said “even if you renovate the Ranch with gold, after five hours of a tortuous journey from Calabar to the Ranch, it will be difficult to convince you to do a second trip. So, no matter what you do, the first challenge for any professional who is looking properly into dealing with the issue is to first and foremost address access to the ranch because when you get there beautifully without stress, you will love to come back again and again.”
