For instance, in the past four years, under the amiable leadership of Governor Benedict Ayade, Cross River State has witnessed an unprecedented improvement in the health, Education,Commerce and Industry, security and Agricultural sectors.
Other sectors that have improved include physical infrastructural development, employment generation and human capital development.
Furthermore, Governor Benedict Ayade has shown leadership qualities in drawing support from a consensus amongCross riverians, safeguarding and promoting the interests of residents of Cross River State to achieve sustainable benefits.
The Ayade-led administration has been pursuing social policies that support good governance vis-à-vis providing opportunities in security, education, Agriculture and, better and affordable health care delivery, social welfare, fair distribution of development projects such as roads, Industries and other physical infrastructural development. Such projects are taking to the local government and rural areas which provide socioeconomic opportunities for the local people.
This write up is an enthusiastic celebration of the many achievements of Governor Benedict Ayade within the space of four years. It is also a unique attribute of many of the physical projects undertaken by the Ayade-led administration.
The SPIRIT OF ENTERPRISE is a socioeconomic remodelling blueprint to lay the much-needed foundation for better days ahead in a futuristic economically Stronger Cross River.
The huge infrastructure development in all sector, including; construction and rehabilitation of roads, building of schools, health centres, factories and regular payment of salaries are possible because of hard work and prudent management of the state financial resources.
The visionary leadership of Gov. Ayade has resulted in the establishment of an indigenous power plant, building of modern colleges were deliberate attempt to institutionalized a knowledge-based economy; and a critical mass of skills for entrepreneurship and business competitiveness.
The Calabar seedlings factory which today is gradually becoming a reference point in Agricultural revolution is also a product of a well-planned development agenda.
All these attests to the sound and result-oriented initiatives of the Ayade led administration.
Other examples abound in other sectors of the state economy and history will be fair to this administration for all the giant strides recorded so far.
Talking of priorities as projected goals in the second tenure; Gov Ayade has started doing more for Cross Riverians,the gains of Industrial revolution are enormous but the most striking ones are; that our graduates can become engaged, thereby decongesting the labour market.
It has been proven again and again that industrial revolution is the most potent cure to joblessness which is why Gov Ayade decided to bring industries closer to the people. These lofty plans incorporated in the second tenure Stronger Cross River vision will certainly accommodate a larger number of youths in the expanded job and wealth creation programme of this administration.
Next, in the second tenure priority list is the plan to transform Cross River into an economic hub.
During this second tenure, more factories shall be built and commissioned as part of the Stronger Cross River vision.
These are economic transformation ideas which, among others, would make a positive history for this administration during the second tenure.
It follows that planned action spiced with prayers and political will power of the governor associated with Ayade administration shall certainly transform the state into an economic hub with the positive effect of a better and stronger state, where prosperity and socioeconomic advancement shall reflect positively in the living standard of Cross Riverians.
