Amb. Nkoyo Toyo

The former house of representatives member and frontline contender for the office of governor, Amb.

Reacting to a contract recently signed between the State government and a Chinese firm for the construction of the deep seaport, Amb. Toyo advised against signing contracts at this time that may negatively affect the future of the younger generation. 

According to the governorship hopeful, “Gov. Ayade’s decision to take stock of his legacy cannot be faulted. However, the Bakassi Deep Sea Port is a huge contract which he is unlikely to complete in the next three years and one would suggest that entering into a contract with such serious-minded nationals as the Chinese should not be done lightly”
