The outgoing Cross River State Commissioner for Youth and Sport, Mr. Asu Okang has called on his successor (if he’s not retained) to leverage on opportunities the office provides.

He gave the advice in a press briefing in his office where he said that, “I will advice my successor to leverage on the YESSO program, remove the administrative bottleneck in the Ministry by not duplicating function and roles, I expect the advocacy of the young should not end, and leverage on the engagement of young people.”

In the media parley he enumerated some of his achievements so far in office: “Before now Rovers and Pelican football clubs were owed for over eight months, and were always walked away from matches. But since this administration came in we have not heard anything on such nature again.

“Governor Ayade donated two, thirty-two seater coaster bus, gave a sum of three million naira which he later increased it to five million naira.

“We have 11 on going projects at the U.J Esuene stadium that was inherited from the previous Government but we’re doing everything possible to get it back on track.” He revealed.

Okang while speaking on the newly admitted 5000 youths, he said, “The YESSO program is a success as it has  engaged over 5000 young people through the YESSO program, additional 1000 youths across the 18 LGA’s of the State are trained under the World Bank skills acquisition program.”

Finally, Asu called on Cross Riverians to support the leadership of Governor Ben Ayade for an efficient and better Cross River State.
