Cross River State Governor, Professor Ben Ayade says his administration is determined to make the state a construction hub in Africa. Ayade in his Democracy Day broadcast said he has already done diligent planning to bring the plan to fruition.
“We are fully reloaded to make Cross River State the construction hub for Africa. It is indeed difficult at this point in time to hope perhaps that magic would be done.
“But with sincere commitment with the love and fear of God with all your support, Cross River State indeed shall move from 3rd world to 1stworld under my watch,” he stated.
He pledged that his administration would move “Cross River beyond the boundaries of hope and jobs to the horizons and frontiers of content, bliss and happiness.”
Continuing, the governor said: “one year into our administration today we can assure you that victory, prosperity, success and an end to poverty and unemployment is assured. As sharp hunters we won’t miss our mark. As custodians of your collective trust, we would keep our promise.”
