APC mocks Ayade, says "fund CRUTECH first before turning Tinapa to University"

Cross River State Chairman of APC, Dr. Mathew Achigbe

All Progressives Congress in Cross River State has reacted to plans by Governor Ben Ayade to turn the Tinapa Business and Leisure Resort to a world class university describing it as laughable.

The party also said the idea is the height of hallucination which the Governor is known for.

Governor Ayade had in a TVC news programme recently announced that his administration was planning to turn the $46 billion Tinapa Resort which has remained moribund to a World Class University where research work will be prioritised.

But the APC  in a statement by it's State Publicity Secretary, Mr. Bassey Ita, said "Ayade  will not stop amusing Cross River people".

He said the people of Cross River are daily inundated with promises of this or that which have all remained only in the realm of imagination".

According to the APC "We just begin to laugh each time Ayade makes his promises of constructing this or that. Yes we laugh over it because  there are just products of  hallucination. Each time he travels abroad and thinks of a story beyond MOUs, he comes back with the idea of another empty  promise".

"Cross Riverians are now too wise to believe these antics".

The party said "it is really amusing that a government which cannot subvent the only State University, CRUTECH to take care of its accreditation and other academic challenges, can be talking of constructing  a research- based university. Such pronouncement confirms our fear of hallucination as being at the centre of these empty promises".

The APC however urged the Governor to convince it of it's seriousness with the project, by firstly subventing CRUTECH, paying pension arrears, completing the superhighway, deapseaport, among other  projects, he earlier promised but    abandoned before turning Tinapa to a University.

It also urged the Governor not to tamper with the Tinapa Resort because according to the statement, "APC has great plans coupled with the goodwill of the President Buhari led administration to revive the resort and make it work".
