Cross River State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade has joined the Nigerian presidential race.
The Governor received the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential nomination, and expression of interest forms purchased for him by groups, including Arewa youths.
Ayade, who was overwhelmed by the gesture, promised to fix the country, starting with security and power.
He said he understands the challenges of the country and was bringing to the table a commitment to effect change.
“I commit to effect change, I commit to accelerating progress. I have a clear picture of the prosperity I want to bring to this country. It is crystal clear.
“I am committed to taking advantage of the huge natural resources and huge human resources and creating an embrace to bring prosperity to this country,” he stated.
While presenting the forms to Ayade, a former governorship aspirant, Prof. Eyo Etim Nyong spoke glowingly of the Governor.
Prof. Eyo said, “Ayade is a man of extra capacity, a man who has what it takes to lead this country. You are not making a mistake, you are charting the way forward for our great country.
“All of us have visions but a lot of people are looking for wealth to drive that vision but here’s a man that transforms his vision into wealth. Cross Riverians are witnesses to how he transformed the vision into wealth.”
