When Professor Ben Ayade took the reins as Cross River State Govenor in 2015, he was well aware of the various challenges that lay in wait for him which included unemployment, lack of industrialization, amoung many others.
For a governor who believes that if a man can put his soul above his problems and challenges, he can surmount all odds, he knew exactly the direction his administration needed to take.
It was in recognition of this that he spared no time to hit the ground running in attracting both foreign and local investors to the state with a view to establishing industries that will creat employment opportunities for the people. Governor Ayade’s administrative philosophy is firmly anchored on the belief that the citizenry could only be liberated from the shackles of poverty if the state was completley decoupled from its dependence allocations from the federation account.
