Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade yesterday expressed the gratitude of the government and people of the state to President Muhammadu Buhari for the appointment of an indigene of the state, Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, as the new Chief of Naval Staff.

Governor Ayade noted that by the appointment of Admiral Ekwe Ibas as the new Naval Chief, President Buhari has indeed demonstrated his avowed declaration that he would be President for all.

Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas hails from Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River State.

Reacting in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, shortly after news of Admiral Ekwe Ibas’ appointment broke, Governor Ayade said: “I wish to express my sincere gratitude to our President, Muhammadu Buhari, for the appointment of our son and brother, Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas as the new Chief of Naval Staff.

“It is now clear to all that this is a President who is very much committed to his pronouncements as a leader. He has demonstrated that he is a man of his words and a man of conviction. He declared to Nigerians soon after his inauguration that he would be President for all. There is no doubt that every day, Mr. President is walking his talk.”

The governor congratulated the new Naval Chief on his appointment, saying he is deserving of his elevation.

“I wish to on behalf of myself and the good people of Cross River State congratulate our son and brother, Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas on his well-deserved appointment as the new Chief of Naval Staff. As a true professional, I have no doubt in my mind that he would acquit himself in his new responsibility and lend his wealth of experience in combating the challenges of insecurity in the country,” Ayade stated.
