Retired Permanent Secretary and Former two time Commissioner for Woks & Transport, Commerce & Industry in the Cross River State, Prince Aras Abue has commended His Excellency, Sen. Ben Ayade.
Prince Abue made this known on occasion of a courtesy call on him by Ogoja PDP Chapter Chairman and Ward Chairmen on Friday, 26th January 2018, in Calabar.
He said, “We in Cross River State are lucky to be blessed with a young talented energetic and brilliant leader like our Gov. Prof Ben Ayade.
“Never in the history of governance has any administration implemented such high profile capital intensive and economically viable projects as the administration of Gov. Ben Ayade.
“Never in the history of governance of Cross River State has any administration seen such high premium placed on staff welfare as can be seen in the prompt payment of salaries and pension allowances in CRS.
“Never in the history of governance in CRS have we seen such large number of appointees on board the ship of State and it has never shown any sign of capsizing.
“We therefore owe ourselves a responsibility to sustain and perpetuate the administration of Sen. Ben Ayade to enable him take the state to the next level.”
He used the opportunity to call on all Cross Riverians especially now that preparations for the 2019 general elections are coming on, to screw up courage to the sticking point to ensure that the Governor is returned for a second term in office without rancour.
