Former Nigerian envoy to South Korea, Ambassador Akpang Obi Odu, has commended the Cross River State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade for what he described as his impactful style of Governance.

While noting that the governor was God's sent to Cross River, the former Envoy, said his leadership style is engendering the anticipated benefits to the overall development of the state.

Amb. Odu who made the commendation when he visited the Governor in Government House, Calabar said the industrialization drive of the Ayade led-administration was unprecedented and unmatched since the advent of democratic rule in the State.

In his words, “I have watched three successive governments, but i must say Ayade is laying a great foundation that will transform the socio-economic landscape of our State for our children yet unborn.”

Obi Odu added: “I like you for one thing, you are proactive and I totally believe in people who are proactive and make pronouncements for things to happen because if you don’t speak out what you nurse in your heart, you may never actualize them.

"If we have the same mindset that you have sir, I can assure you that we will be the gateway to Nigeria and I am happy that we are able to articulate with his Excellency to develop this State.”

While lauding the Governor for initiating the 275km superhighway and the Bakassi deep seaport, the former ambassador maintained that “even the president has put his foot down to support our deep seaport and the Superhighway.

"So, you can imagine that if we have all these investments fully in place by the government, no one will say I am poor again because of what the governor has agreed to do, couple with the ones that are still coming to our State.”

On security, Odu thanked Ayade for still maintaining a peaceful state inspite of daunting challenges and noted that “issues of security is being contained well by His Excellency even though there are various stories that try to slander the image of the State but we have consistently remained one of the most peaceful state in the country.”

He stressed the need for the introduction of more offerings in the tourism circle of the state adding that “our carnival can also run longer by including our New Yam festivals which will make people to start visiting from January until December.”

While calling on Cross Riverians to rally round the Governor who he noted has the interest of everyone at heart, Obi Odu urged: “So let us not discourage him or form an attitude of discouragement because under his leadership, we will achieve a whole lot than we ever expected.”
