Goodwill Message from Ntufam Edim Inok Edim

The story of the Nigerian nation-state and the attainment of political sovereignty on October 1, 1960, eloquently reminisces the testimony of her journey so far at 57 years. We have grown and demonstrated with resilience, the capacity to uphold the tenacious identity of independent Nigeria despite our enormous challenges.

Cross River State is a testimony of democratic success and visionary leadership. At 57 years and counting, we celebrate the sacrifice, statesmanship and well laid foundation of our founding fathers and the antecedents of their noble service to humanity.

At 57, we are more than blessed to be part of Nigeria’s success story and of the digital revolution of His Excellency, Sen. Prof. Ben Ayade ably deputized by His Excellency, Prof Ivara Ejemot Esu leading the alluring and accomplishing family of the People’s Democratic Party. Your people-oriented policies, programmes and projects are eloquently evident and incontrovertible.

We wish the Federal and Cross River State Governments together with the Legislature and third tier of government, a fruitful future as you steer the ship of state to a much-desired Eldorado.

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
Long live Cross River State!!
Long live the People’s Democratic Party!!!
