Cross River State governor, Sir Ben Ayade has emerged Leadership Newspaper Governor of the Year for 2019.
Making the nomination public, the Abuja-based widely circulated newspaper said the choice of Ayade as the Governor of the Year for 2019 was informed by his “igniting an industrial revolution that has positioned Cross River State on the pedestal of sustainable economic growth, for building factories with zonal spread across the state, providing job opportunities for youths and women, rebuilding the state’s decrepit infrastructure as well as empowering his people economically with his agricultural transformation agenda.”

Acknowledging other achievements of Governor Ayade, which cut across several sectors of the state’s economy, the management and board of Leadership noted: “Ayade has, by every step he has taken, validated the pivotal role education and exposure play in the governance system of the 21st century knowledge-driven economy.”
Describing the governor as “ever sassy and focused”, the newspaper said: “Ayade has redefined what scientific and deliberate leadership is all about.”
According to paper, “Since he assumed office on May 29, 2015, he has never taken any policy decision without targeted aims and objectives. For instance, while it has become customary in our clime for governors to dish out the yearly ritual of budgeting without its impact on development, Governor Ayade would not be part of such. His annual appropriation bills are deliberate and targeted at sectors that will have lineal benefits to other sectors.”
The Leadership Newspaper Governor of the Year, is one in a series of awards Governor Ayade has bagged since becoming governor in 2015. Before now, he had bagged similar awards from Vanguard, TELL, Businessday and Authority Newspapers among others.
