Senator, others laud Ayade for expanding govt

The decision by Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade, to open up the space for more participation in governance has been commended by various stakeholders in the state.

Describing the policy as pragmatic  and coming at the right time, Senator representing Cross River North senatorial district, Senator Rose Oko said: “The essence of the enlarged government is to provide employment opportunity for the teeming youths of the state in the face of the harsh economic realities of our time,” stressing that it was a commendable effort by the governor.

Former Nigerian Ambassador to Ethiopia and lawmaker  in the lower House of the 7th National Assembly, Ambassador Nkoyo Toyo, who dismissed criticism against the policy, noted: “Governor Ayade’s idea of expanding government is a model meant to serve as a shock absorber to the impact of the current global economic reality.

“The initiative will fertilize and serve to bolster the economy by opening up the space for more persons to not only have employment but also to provide political power to the people.”
