I also want to state that the government of Sen. Prof. Ben Ayade, the digital governor of CRS has indeed helped strengthen the values of true democracy as it has in all ramifications brought the government down to the people, making the people have a feel of what democracy should be. His ambitious drive to make governance participatory and inclusive as well as put food on the table of many cannot be over flogged as this same passion has seen him delve into digitalizing the state thus making CRS an enterprise state where dependence on federal allocation will be a thing of the past in the state.

As we take yet another step to further deepen our democracy I want to assure the good people of Cross River State that I am well prepared and willing to further ensure that even the common man on the street is satisfied with the dividends of Democracy.
