Press Release

Ayade thanks Cross Riverians for their solidarity

The state governor, His Excellency, Professor Ben Ayade notes with delight, the infectious broom revolution sweeping across the entire length and breadth of Cross River State since he joined the All Progressives Party (APC).

His Excellency particularly salutes the love of millions of  Cross River youths who have so far, without prompting, taken up membership cards of the All Progressives Congress, APC in solidarity with him.

His Excellency restates that no individual or group no matter how highly placed can stop this mass movement.

Events of the past weeks show clearly it is a movement Cross Riverians have been yearning for. They only needed a triger to ignite it.

His Excellency recognises that no other love and appreciation for what he has done in Cross River these past six years can be greater than this massive solidarity.

His Excellency appreciates and thanks Cross Riverians for their understanding as to why he moved to the APC which is to socket Cross River to the centre.

The effusive show of love Cross Riverians have showered on His Excellency has made him realise that the best investment anyone can make is investment in the people.

Consequently, His Excellency hereby announces that he will  further expand the frontiers of government and put food on more tables as soon as certain discussions with the federal government crystalize.
