"Your Excellency, my boss, Prof Ben Ayade who wished to be here in person, could not make it because of higher official responsibilities with the President outside the Country.

" I came with this  delegation from Cross River to express our condolences to you and the entire family over the passing of your father ,our father who lived an exemplary life.

“He was a rare gem, a disciplinarian, a believer of faith, a courageous man who brought up all his children in the way of the Lord as exemplified in Your Excellency and others. We will miss him dearly,” Professor Ivara said.

In his response, Governor Emmanuel thanked the Governor Ayade and the people of Cross River State for the show of love.

The the Akwa Ibom state governor used the occasion to call for close collaboration by the two states governments, especially in the area of agriculture and Toursim Development.

"I always say that with the nature of land God blessed Cross River with, the state can feed the whole of Nigeria because there can hardly be any agricultural produce that cannot grow on Cross River soil.”
