May I use this opportunity to commend Sir Ben Ayade, the Executive Governor of Cross River State for his commitment towards the total restoration of Cross River State pacesetting status.

DO YOU KNOW : After 13 years of non-functional Calabar Port, Sir Ben Ayade came into power in 2015 and vowed to decouple Cross River from Federal Government Allocation (FGA), just last month the Marguisa Calabar Service had witnessed full operation with the arrival of the Marguisa Boreas at Calabar Port. According to our investigation, the Boreas is one of the biggest and spacious ship to have landed in Calabar-Nigeria.

DO YOU KNOW: With the berth of the Marguisa Boreas at Calabar Port, Cross River State economy will experience a turn around?

DO YOU KNOW: With the full operational services of the Calabar Port, businesses in the direct catchment of Akwa Ibom, Ebonyi, Benue, Plateau, Adamawa, Taraba and as far as Borno and Jigawa States will patronize the Calabar service and turn around the fortunes of the Calabar Port as well as create more jobs in the State?.

DO YOU KNOW: On the 31st of September 2019, the Federal Government of Nigeria under the reign of President Muhammadu Buhari gave official approval for the dredging and construction of the Bakassi Deep Seaport?

DO YOU KNOW: Sir Ben Ayade is the first Governor in Nigeria history that came into power with the idea of governance expansion?

DO YOU KNOW : Sir Ben Ayade is the first Governor in Nigeria history with over 6,000 appointees, he picked youths from the streets and mould them, shift government to them?

DO YOU KNOW : Most Cross River State Youths now have good houses, investments in the state capital courtesy of Sir Ben Ayade?

What else do we (Cross Riverians) want from a man who works 24/7 at home and still repeating same feat abroad all for the sake of the poor masses, Cross River State will never be the same in few years to come if every officers (political appointees) of the government put in their best to support Sir Ben Ayade as him alone cannot do it all. It could be by your prayers, commitment to your duties, and also doing that which you know will contribute immensely to the growth of our dear state.

And to Our indefatigable Deputy Governor, Prof. Ivara Esu, I pray that God continue to use you for you have demonstrated to the world that you can add values to a system even as second in command.

The writer of this piece is proud of the harmonious relationship existing between the Governor, Sir Ben Ayade and the masses, particularly the less-privileges.

I would said I’m committed to a positive change in the lives of the citizens as being championed by Governor Ben Ayade and his team.
