PDP hails Ayade’s performance in office

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Cross River State, has said it is delighted by the performance of Professor Ben Ayade as governor of the state.

The leadership of the party, during a visit to the governor in Calabar, said the governor remained extremely popular with the people of the state on account of his sterling performance in office.

Led by its chairman, Ntufam Edim Inok Edim, the party expressed its confidence in the governor’s leadership.

“Your Excellency, we want to use this opportunity to pass a vehement and unequivocal vote of confidence on your visionary leadership; and in particular, on your people-oriented policies, programmes and projects in the state,” Edim said.

In his response, Governor Ayade expressed appreciation to the party for the visit and restated his commitment to the people of Cross River State.

He said his vision and projects have the blessing of God and “God can never let them die because they are intended to serve and improve the lives of the people.”

He urged the party to continue to support his administration with prayers while lamenting the many distractions that have trailed his government.

“In the state distractions have become destruction. It is not who we are known for as Cross Riverians. Here in Cross River our heritage is to be civil and decent. For me I have made a choice to learn from the criticisms of critics. I am being critized for doing something right. The ultimate focus is to serve the people. This visit gives me inspiration and hope.

“We should forgive, tolerate and accept the inadequacies of our brothers who are fond of critizing. As a government and a party we remain focused on our campaign promises to our people,” he stated.

He said the visit was necessary to “once again demonstrate our unflinching support to your administration as the unbeatable governor of Cross River State and leader of Peoples Democratic Party in the state.”

Noting that Cross River State was getting better under Ayade’s leadership,  Edim commended the governor for the state’s health insurance scheme known as Ayadecare, which he said is for the benefit of all Cross Riverians.

Additionally, he lauded Ayade for some of the many wonderful innovations he has introduced to the state since he was elected as governor.

His words: “Many of your innovations to transform the economic status of our dear state are trending positively and creating waves in Cross river state and beyond.”

While urging him to ignore detractors, the party said he remains popular with the people on account of his policies.
