The transformation of Cross River State Governor, Senator Benedict Ayade from Digital Governor‘ to ‘Salary Master ‘ over the last four years is one of the most enduring narratives of this political dispensation.
From the very day Governor Ayade took over the reins of leadership and showed the signs of performance, his detractors have been waiting for him to falter. They may have to wait for eternity as the make-up of Governor Ayade has no room for developmental loss of focus .
Coming at a time when the homeland is in ominous need of farsighted leaders with the wisdom of King Solomon, guts of the Biblical Daniel and the leadership understanding of Joseph in the holy book, the people of Cross River State without a doubt have genuine reasons to be proud of their own.
His Excellency, Governor Benedict Ayade is a mystical revelation from the south-South part of the country; he is both a Lion and Jewel to South -South region.
His clout in the polity cuts size of someone who is exquisitely authorized to do what he is currently doing in the state, in the oval interest of all.
He has obviously clinched virtually every Laurel given as a reward of excellence, altruism and studiousness in governance by the Nigerian Media; all as proofs of his purposeful and responsive administration in the heart of the South-South.
He has equally notched the coveted prize of “Most Labour Friendly Governor” of the year in 2016; a major recognition and known recompense for prudence in the management of resources of the state, as well as his timely payment of workers’ salaries, irrespective of contingencies.
He has also landed on himself, the enviable tag of “most digitalized Governor” among his peers across the country .
Ayade is a father like no other in the nation; and a leader in the mold of ancient servants; worthy of their praises.
Ayade has similarly received the “greatest leadership medal” from all sectors.
He is in the business of road construction like the hurricane he is; tarring where indispensable and rehabilitating where obligatory in the general interest of the state, so as to make our cities and communities accessible.
He is creating jobs in bunch like a whirlwind in other to contain the spate of unemployment in the state; just as he is issuing grants to help boost business ideas and nurture them to fruition for job creation and value generation.
In a society that listens, men of valor, candor, zeal and zest like Gov.Benedict Ayade ought to have been solely and wholly given a clean bill of health to return as Governor without subjecting him to the rigors of squaring with any contender in any election; as was the case in the governorship primary election of his party, (PDP, where he was a sole candidate); few months ago.
At the risk of sounding immodest, there is no single serving governor that can contend with Ayade.
Though with several verifiable reasons why he should fail, Governor Ayade chose the path of success–because that is what he promised the good people of Cross River State .
Today, Governor Ayade has proved the Cross River people right. He has lived up to their expectations through consistent initiation and execution of pro-people projects and programmes.
The Ayade administration has ensured that governance gets a human face. Governance has come to live with the people and the people are glad.
