The Governor of Cross River State governor, Prof. Ben Ayade said the state is ready for President Buhari's visit.
All set for Buhari's visit to Cross River state
Our president is long done with politics just as I have, and he is now facing governance and that is why he is the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The President will be in Cross River, to flag off of the construction of the 260 kilometres six-lane super highway.
According to Sun Newspapers, Ayade said "The president confirmed that he is not just coming, but to him it is a home-coming because he was one of the few generals that fought for the emancipation of Gakem, Bekwarra Local Government Area during the civil war and has traversed all that terrain. So, it is a terrain that he knows very well and he understands the value of our proposed projects and that is why he is personally committed to its actualisation."
He also said “As he performs the groundbreaking of the 260 kilometres super-highway, we are challenged to ensure its completion so that he can commission it. It is a strong commitment he has given and I am sure Cross Riverians are anxiously waiting to receive him tomorrow."
Adding that “Our president is long done with politics just as I have, and he is now facing governance and that is why he is the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
