Ayade Does Not Politicise Development - Works Commissioner

Cross River State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Dane Osim-Asu said that Governor Ben Ayade is poised to ensure even spread of development in the state.

Engr. Osim-Asu who made the assertion while speaking with the Paramount Ruler of Yala, His Majesty, Ogamode Onah Ipuole, in his Palace informed that unlike some Politicians who are in the practice of Politicising development, the Government of the day has the interest of the people at heart always  and is out to redeem its campaign promises to them.

The Commissioner maintained that as the Ministry saddled with the responsibility of providing and managing safe roads across the State, it is a routine duty of the Commissioner to undertake timely inspection of road projects under its purview to keep the contractors in check and on their toes to ensure they deliver standard road projects and on time.

He pointed out that the trip to Yala was to inspect the extent of work done at the sites and noted that the contractors were on the earth work stage.

He explained that during the rains, construction work is usually at its low ebb assuring that the contractors  have been  called  back to sites as soon as the rainy season ends.

While assuring that Government would soon address the issue of compensation, he added that the Governor had given approval for some amount to be given to those whose crops were affected by the expansion of the road.

Responding, the Paramount Ruler
appreciated the Commissioner for the visit and for ensuring that the road is properly constructed, adding that the issue of compensation arising from the crops of those affected by the construction of Mfom-Yala-Okuku-Bekwarra-Obudu ranch road was stirred by lawyers who instigated his subjects against him.

HM Ipuole advised young lawyers to emulate Barr. Kanu Agabi (SAN) who has advised his Bekwarra people to settle their differences at community level rather than going to court and causing bad blood among themselves.

The Paramount Ruler promised that the community is poised to fulfill their own part of the promise to the Governor on road construction by mediating between the indigenes and the contractor to enable a hitch free completion of the project.
