President Muhammdu Buhari has lauded the contributions of Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State to the success of the Federal Government's effort at diversifying the economy through agriculture.

President Buhari gave the commendation in his broadcast speech to the nation to mark its 57th independence anniversary.

He also commended ten other governors for making similar contributions.

According to him, "With respect to the economy, the Government has remained pro-active in its diversification policy. The Federal Government’s agricultural Anchor Borrowers Programme, which I launched in November 2015, has been an outstanding success.

"These initiatives have been undertaken in close collaboration with the states. I wish to commend the efforts of the Governors of Kebbi, Lagos, Ebonyi and Jigawa States for their support to the rice and fertilizer revolutions.for

"Equally commendable are contributions of the Governors of Ondo, Edo, Delta, Imo, Cross River, Benue, Ogun, Kaduna and Plateau States for their support for the Presidential initiative for palm oil, rubber, cashew, cassava, potatoes and other crops."

The President said "with the abundance of rainfall last year and this year, agriculture has enjoyed Divine intervention."
