Images: Workers demand release of Superhighway’s EIA

Workers, under the aegis of the Cross River State chapters of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday, March 15 2017, took to the streets of Calabar, the state capital, to show support for embattled Governor Ben Ayade over the controversial Superhighway project.

During the peaceful demonstration, members of the labour organisations gave a 21-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to approve the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report on the proposed Superhighway and the Bakassi Deep Seaport projects.
