In this second tenure, I will no longer be the governor — Ayade

The Governor of Cross River state, Ben Ayade, has declared that his deputy will run the state as Acting Governor throughout his second term.

Ayade stated this while delivering his inaugural address after he was sworn in on Wednesday for the second time as a governor at the U.J Esuene stadium.

His words: “Be committed and steadfast because Cross River state will be an industrialised state under my watch. In this my second tenure, I will no longer be the governor. My Deputy will be the acting governor while I become the project manager of Cross River state as I will relocate to Ikom LGA.
“In this tenure, will be food on the table, hands on the plough, no amount of investment in infrastructure will be equivalent to taking care of the well being of the people, paying salaries and employing them.
“We must understand that anytime our problems can only be solved by money, then our intellect has failed us,” Ayade stated.
