In his irrepressible desire to see through his signature projects, the governor of Cross River State, Senator Ben Ayade today signed the quality control deal for the Calabar-Ikom-Ogoja-Obudu super highway which the governor has proposed as one of his signature projects in his first tenure.

The deal which was signed in the German city of Wiesbaden is one of several steps that the governor is taking to see that work on the project begins soonest.

The governor had announced last week that he was in discussions with the President of the country, President Mohammadu Buhari, who is expected to come to the state to do the groundbreaking before the commencement of work, hopefully in few weeks.

While signing the deal, the governor said he will prove all the ‘Doubting Thomases’ wrong by making sure that the road is delivered to Cross Riverians before the end of his first tenure despite the financial challenges that the state is facing.

According to governor Ayade, “Anytime there is a genuine desire to work for the good and in the interest of a greater majority of the people, the cosmic will make provision because it is for the sake of the people. I am very confident that this project which some pessimists are saying won’t be possible, will be delivered before the end of our first term in office.

“We have interested investors already who want to come and invest their money in developing our intended projects and I must say that these projects are many. If you go to Airport by pass, Ayade is building a state owned garment factory there and I am happy to announce that all equipment were paid for two weeks ago.”

The governor informed that the design for the state owned Seaport in Calabar is at advanced stage and the transaction adviser will be appointed on his return to Nigeria.

The governor who is presently in Germany to do recruitment for project quality control is also aggressively driving German investors to key into his other plans which include a cement factory and quarry procurement.

He is expected to depart Germany for Barcelona in Spain tonight to attend the World Governors Forum for Climate Change where he serves as the African Chair. He is expected to deliver a paper at the forum later tomorrow.

  • Superb,if done. in cross river state as large no dout He’ll ever be seen and celebrated as messiah

  • ‘just so amazed at the governor’s drive! While his colleagues are busy whining over bail out, he’s hit the ground running. We just got us our “Lee Kuan Yeuw”. You got our prayers and support Sir. God be with you!

  • i said it, “this one is different”. Oh God, give him the wherewithal to do do his will for the people, the health to perform and the clear head to roll out the laudable projects and programmes IJN.

  • This is the real change that Cross Riverine desired. Lord we thank you for sending us a Redeemer. Our able Senator Ben Ayede my the almighty God give you good health and strength to move our grate state to a grater hight. Remain bless and strong my excellency.

  • Senator, Professor Ben Ayede,
    The best thing to have ever happened to Cross River in this generation; proving his honesty to his promises to Crossriverians, from his selection exercise of Cabinet members to the State Exco, his procurement for quality vendors for state projects and lastly, is his style of implementation and supervision that has proved him committed; Calaber is already redeeming its glory as the cleanest City in the Country due to this, CUDA now works in the night so that residents wake up to an ever serene city…
    Thank you Lord for this “CHANGE” which has proved very positive…

  • l had always known that with Prof. Ayade as our governor, we’d not seen anything yet. It’s been a good race for us in CRS. Duke was the best starter; he discovered our potentials, earned us pride, glory n a leading position in d committee of states in Africa. Imoke, though could not sustain d pace of advancement for our state, was able to follow d growth path with some added facilities but at a very slow pace. He lost d focus. Ayade full of energy n determination to revolutionalise d entire state is here to do d unbelievable without any excuses. He is surely going to surprise d entire world. I believe in his courage n passion for his fatherland. Nigeria, n indeed Africa will soon understand d true meaning of ‘good governance’, cos d game changer is here in CRS. God has sent Ayade to finish d game, He’ll surely help him to finish well. I love my governor. 07062990242

  • Am too proud to be a Cross Riverian. Keep up the good work Sir

  • this is truly the rebranded mind and the ppls govornor. i like to commend that if he can consentrate only on the road and pay salaries he must have settled the state while we relaod for the second term. God will go with you as long as you remain on track.
