The Cross River Government has appealed to the general public to be patient over the sudden emergence of potholes on major roads in Calabar, the state capital.
Mr Christian Ita, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Ben Ayade, made the appeal in a statement on Tuesday in Calabar.
Ita said that the state government was currently taking inventory of existing potholes in Calabar with a view to rehabilitating them before the Christmas.
“The state government is not unmindful of the inconveniences this is causing motorists and as such has consequently mobilised resources; both human and material in readiness to commence urgent rehabilitation.
“The state government will patch every single pothole in the city before Christmas, in line with Ayade zero tolerance for potholes.
“Accordingly, government is by this notice, already taking inventory of existing potholes, just as it enjoins members of the public to bring to its attention where similar potholes may be found.
“Such information should be forwarded to the office of the General Manager, Cross River Broadcasting Corporation, Calabar,” the governor’s aide said.
