The Task Before Ayade


Sen, Prof Ben Ayade

Since the advent of the fourth Republic in 1999, Cross River have had three executive governors. First to wear the golden crown is Mr Donald Duke. His administration focused more in laundering the image of the State both within and in the international community. Some of his achievements includes the Tinapa business resort, Obudu cattle ranch, the re-branded Carnival Calabar, just to mention but a few. He handed over to Sen Liyel Imoke. Imoke on the other hand concentrated more in rural infrastructures such as building of rural roads, primary health care, rehabilitation of public schools across the state and so much more to his credit. In 2015, the mantle of leadership fell on the shoulders of Sen, Prof Ben Ayade. Ayade enthusiastically pledged during  his first tenure inauguration that never will a child go to bed hungry under his watch. To back words with actions, the governor opened the windows of employment through his proliferation of political appointees. In decoupling the state from excessive dependence on federal allocation, the digital governor initiated some signature projects which are not limited to the under listed: The first ever super highway, the Bakassi deepseaport, the garment factory, rice and cocoa factories respectively. These giant strides are applauded  in every quarters as they are considered noble and people’s oriented. Amidst these fun fare is the clarion call for the governor to complete and commission these projects in record time as that is the surest way for the masses to feel it efficacies. Going forward, the governor should as a matter of urgency constitute his cabinet of like-minds who will assist in driving his vision of a prosperous Cross River State.
