There has not been any response to these reactions.

Plans for the dualization of the Uyo –  road began towards the end of the Godswill Akpabio government, but started during the first term of Mr. Udom Emmanuel’s administration. The project which is handled by construction giants, Julius Berger has since been done in sections in the past four years, with some parts of it yet to be touched.
