Yahe-Wanihem Road: Senator Jarigbe moves to alleviate plight of constituents



In a move to mitigate the suffering faced by the people of Yala, Senator representing Cross River North, Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe has commenced rehabilitation work on the Yahe-Wanokomhe–Wanikade-Wanihem road.

The 27km road leads to Benue State has been a major source of distress to the Yala people because of it’s dilapidated state.

The area is one highest producers of tubers in the state but it’s poor infrastructure has made farmers produce at a loss because of difficulties in accessing markets.

Leaders over the years have made failed  promises about reconstructing the road which is a major source of evacuating agro produce between Cross River and Benue states.

Speaking while flagging off the rehabilitation of the road, Senator Jarigbe, who was represented by the Constituency Officer during the inauguration exercise, Mr Egar Mgbantul, said he decided to take up the road project to ameliorate the sufferings of his people.

He explained that he is the National Assembly to protect the interest and welfare of his people.

He expressed hope that when completed the road would  enhance community  integration, boost inter- community trade and give the constituents access to other economic opportunities that abound within the senatorial zone.

He commended the people of Yahe and Ukelle for their tremendous support so far,  promising to attract more democratic dividends. 

He enjoined the contractor to try and deliver quality work and on time to ease rural transportation.
