Governor Bassey Otu of Cross River State has confirmed that he will spend N5 billion to refurbish the Governor’s Office in Calabar to befit its status.

He disclosed this during an interaction with journalists, saying such an office ought to be the signpost in the state.

He said he will also renovate all the state liaison offices in Abuja, Lagos and elsewhere to similarly carry the same signpost insignia.

The governor stated that the state he met the governor’s office was not befitting, and that renovating it to befitting standard can even help to appeal to investors willing to do business with the state.

“I will not stop to spend money to make the governor’s office very befitting. It ought to be the signpost of the state. I will do the same in all our liaison offices.

“It’s when you make your abode or office befitting that will add value and appeal to investors. Filthy environments and poor architectural outlook can discourage.

“The renovations will be done with transparency. It is estimated that the costs of the renovations will be between N3 to N5 billion. But for now, the contractors are working pro bono,” he said.
