Ayadeism: A Genitically Motivated Art of Deception

Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River state 

Ukorebi Esien

During the electioneering campaign in 2015, Prof. Ben Ayade the PDP flag bearer rode on the campaign banner of "Consolidation" to become the governor of Cross River State. Many of the electorate from Cross River State who voted for the PDP did that because Ayade had promised to consolidate on the rural developmental strides of his predecessor, Liyel Imoke.  Between 29th May, 2015 and today, Ayade has made several promises to the people of Cross River State, which  contradicts his "Consolidation" electoral campaign banner.

Ayade's deviation from his "Consolidation" campaign banner would not had given cross riverians much concern if he had at fulfilled one tenth of his digital gigantesque outer space projects but the reverse is the case as Ayade have only succeeded in taking cross river state 20years backward.

As we approach 2019, the battle for the governorship of Cross River State is gaining momentum and Cross Riverians will again make the choice of whom should lead them, I believe they have learnt and Ayade is a perfect example of who a deceiver is and by this I seriously doubt his continues stay in government house after 29th May, 2019.

It based on Ayade's acts of deception that a social commentator, Lukozo John Etim have taken pains to enumerate few of the many gigantesque projects/promises Ayade  dished out to the good people of Cross River State with none seeing the light of the day.

Ayade's yet to be Fulfilled Gigantic Promises

* "Have Faith in me I shall earn your trust", Ayade tells Cross Riverians

* CR, Spanish firm to establish world class poultry farm - Ayade

* Ayade pledges to eradicate unemployment by end of first term

* CR to plant 5 million trees to support afforestation and climate change - Ayade

* CR partners equipment maker, Liebherr on Super highway, Seaport.

* CR to become net exporter of banana - Ayade

* CR, American firm sign MOU for development of new city

* Ayade set to ensure 24-hr power supply in Calabar, its environs

* CR partners Canada to set up Canadian International School and Canadian Building and Construction Academy.

* CR is overcoming the recession with intellect and innovation - Gov. Ayade

* Cally Air and Calphar will make Calabar the new business hub in the whole of South/South - Ayade

* Nigeria Police to sew uniform in Calabar Garment Factory - IGP

* Ayade inaugurate CRS Health Insurance Scheme (AyadeCare) Technical Working Group. To generate #1 billion monthly for CRS

* Ayade vows to ensure actual commencement of the construction of the Bakassi Deep Seaport and the 260-km Calabar - Bekwarra - Katsina Ala Super Highway in 2017

* CR approves #1 bn to float microfinance Bank

* CR to build 2 mega watts power plants in 18 LGAs.

* CR partners North West Province of South Africa for establishment of hotel college

* CR, Hunan Province of China sign Sister-state agreement

* CR to spend 5M US Dollars annually to end neglected tropical diseases by 2020 - Gov Ayade

* Ayade to install internet- enabled solar street lights in industrial hub

* Ayade is best performing Governor - Sheriff

On and on the list goes without one single one in sight! All na to to, nothing dey ground yet! I pray for the sake of my state that God will touch Ben Ayade's heart so that he can fulfill even one Promise!

As Ayade struggles to fulfill some of his outer space projects in the build up of 2019 elections, with the hope of remaining as governor come May 29th 2019, I urge all Cross Riverians to go out in search of a man who have learn from Ayade on 'how not to be a governor' That can faithfully mount the seat of office of the Governor and take Cross River State back to her glory days. Nobody should think that Ayade will change when given a second chance because I perceive Ayade's chronic act of deception as being genetically motivated, therefore, no second term can cure it.
