The Executive Governor of Cross River State, Sen. Bassey Edet Otu, has visited and assured the people of Adiabo Okurikang in Odukpani Local Government Area of the State that his policies will stimulate economic development among rural dwellers.

The Governor gave the assurance during his visit to the Presbyterian Church in his ancestral home in Adiabo Okurikang of Odukpani LGA of the State, as part of activities to mark his 100 days in office and lauded the people who supported him.

Accompanied by his wife, Rev. Eyoawan Otu, and other top government officials, said his administration is determined to ensure that basic social amenities like power and access roads among others get to the grassroots.

In his excerpt from Luke 17:11-19, he averred that: “There are a lot of challenges in power, but none is stronger than God. The battle of governance is not easy, especially that of governing Cross River State. But in all, I can say that God has been faithful.

“I am confident that it does not matter whatever financial situation we are in as a State, we are committed to taking Cross River to a better place.  One of the things we hope to do as a government is to expand plans to accommodate a greater number of our rural communities in terms of rural access roads, and power among others to help stimulate economic development among rural dwellers.

The presiding priest of the church, Rt. Rev. Umo Ekpo, who preached on the topic: ‘Thanksgiving as an act of respect’ urged everyone to always show appreciation to God at all times, and commended Otu for coming back to the church where he began as a young child.
