Ayade’s Achievements Will Spur Reforms in PDP Says Mantu
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.”
