THISDAY - - NEWS EXTRA -

For­mer Deputy Se­nate Pres­i­dent, Sen­a­tor Ibrahim Mantu, has de­scribed the achieve­ments of Gov­er­nor Ben Ayade of Cross River as in­spir­ing re­forms in the party.

Also com­mend­ing the gov­er­nor at the state ex­ec­u­tive cham­bers, Cal­abar, when a na­tional chair­man­ship as­pi­rant of the party, Prof Tunde Adeni­ran, paid a courtesy call on the gov­er­nor yes­ter­day, was a chief­tain of the party and for­mer min­is­ter of in­for­ma­tion, Prof Jerry Gana.

Ac­cord­ing to Mantu, “You have turned this state into a role model, get­ting the least al­lo­ca­tion yet pay­ing salaries on or be­fore the 25th of each month, a feat which only good gov­er­nors and pru­dent man­agers of re­sources can guar­an­tee.”

Ap­plaud­ing Ayade for ini­ti­at­ing the deep sea­port project which ben­e­fits will be ex­tended to the north­ern part of the coun­try, es­pe­cially the North-east, as well as the es­tab­lish­ment of the gar­ment fac­tory which will save the state and na­tion bil­lions of naira, the for­mer law­maker said: “The new chair­man of our great party must be born again, re­morse­ful and re­pen­tant to do what is hap­pen­ing in Cal­abar, if we must suc­ceed.”

Con­tin­u­ing, Mantu in­ti­mated that “when we ar­rived in Cal­abar yes­ter­day (Mon­day), the aroma of the air was unique, the air smells love, the air smells unity, the air smells ex­cel­lence and we in­deed are grate­ful with your elec­tion in Cross River State.”

On his part, Gana said: “We are proud of this gov­er­nor that is fo­cused, di­rect­ing, mo­bil­is­ing and gov­ern­ing very well and we want to re­peat this in sev­eral states of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Nige­ria.”
