In an effort to curb the spread of the virus to his state, Ayade made what was an unpopular decision at the time, to close all the state’s borders, air, sea and land!

“With this, the governor effectively shut out who ever was not in Cross River State at the time of the order.

“We welcome arguments over the propriety or otherwise of the governor’s action but note, however, that Ayade acted like a man on a mission and appears to be getting the required result of staving off the dreaded disease from the state.

The decision to shut out 35 oil workers said to be NNPC partners, unless they submitted themselves to tests, speaks eloquently to this claim.
