The ongoing road projects in Obudu and neighboring local government areas will be delivered in six months time says the Senior Special Adviser to Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade on Public Affairs, Chief Tony Undiaundeye.
Mr. Ayade had in November 2016 flagged off the dualisation of the Mfom – Okpoma – Ugaga – Okuku – Imaje – Abuochiche – Utugwang – Obudu – Obudu Mountain Resort road tagged the northern highway.
And Mr. Undiaundeye on Friday evening at the Obudu local government area secretariat while reeling out reasons for Mr. Ayade to be reelected said that the Governor is not associated with failure and will complete the roads later in the year.
“An average Obudu man has never failed and so our brother Senator Senator Ben Ayade will never fail, this road you see here will be completed in six months time from now,” said Undiaundeye who maintained that the Governor has always been associated with success.
“We are a blessed people, the Governor is very unique and determined in all his undertakings, he is a star that is always succeeding, if you retrospect you will see that right from his days in the primary, secondary and tertiary institution, he has been outstanding in all he does, a very successful businessman, who transverse the length and breadth of the universe like an autobus, we were fulfilled with his performance at the Senate, we are aware of his antecedents, all we need to do is continue to pray for him.
“The Governor don’t need our endorsement, if other Local governments endorsed him, the south and the central senatorial districts have adopted him, we rather need to thank other LGAs (local government areas) for his endorsement, we will invite them to Obudu to tell them thank you for endorsing our dear son.” he said.
