Former military governor of Bayelsa state, Colonel Paul Edor Obi, has said that Governor Ayade’s Industrial Park, is twenty years ahead of time and will yield enormous benefits for the state and the country.
Paul Edor Obi, from Boki LGA in central Cross River state, was Administrator of Bayelsa State, from July 1998 to May 1999 during the transitional regime of General Abdulsalami Abubakar before handing over to late Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.
Edor Obi who visited the park yesterday said he was stunned by the machinery and technology that has been deployed in the garment factory, rice city and Calapharm, which are all located within the Ayade industrial park.
According to him, “This is not an Industrial Park, it is an industrial revolution. This place, what governor Ben Ayade, is doing here is twenty years ahead of everybody here.
“It will only take people twenty years to begin to see what he is doing here, but by then, the revolution would have already started.”
He praised Governor Ayade for his vision and implored Cross Riverians to continue to support him in his drive to industralize the state.
