The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has commended Cross River Governor, Ben Ayade for his effort to industrialise the state.

Osinbajo said this while performing the ground-breaking ceremony of Ayade Industrial Park Calabar as part of his two-day working visit to the state.

He described the park as an industrial hub in Nigeria and Africa.
“It tells us of what the future holds for the people of this state. It is really going to be a major industrial hub in Africa, ‘’ he said.

The Acting  President later performed the ground-breaking ceremony of Cross River Rice City Project and inaugurated the Calabar Garment Factory, all situated inside the park.

Ayade said his vision was to make the state the destination for investment in Africa.
He solicited the support of the federal government in his quest to develop the state through numerous on-going projects.

Osinbajo had earlier on arrival, visited the Palace of Obong of Calabar, Edidem Ekpo-Abasi Otu, where he called for peaceful co-existence among different ethnic nationalities in the country.

He said that for the country to make progress, there was  need for unity among Nigerians.
“Unity is very important. All of us should show love to one another, this will make us stronger.’’

Obong thanked the Acting President for finding time to visit his palace and described the visit as historic.
He called on Nigerian leaders to always prioritize the welfare of the people irrespective of their political affiliations.
