I Shall Earn Your Trust, Ayade Tell’s Cross Riverians

ayadeCross River’s Governor, Prof Benedict Ayade, Sunday, assured the people of Cross River State that he will earn their trust through good governance.

Ayade, who made the remark at an interdenominational service at the Saint Bernard’s Catholic Church in Calabar as part of the events to celebrate Nigeria’s 55th independence anniversary, urged them to have faith him but not trust him, saying he will only have to earn their trust through purposeful leadership.

“With time and patience l will earn your trust by the achievements l will record. Please have faith in me but don’t trust me. I shall earn your trust ,” he admonished.
The governor spoke moments after he was presented with a holy bible and rosary.

He said he inherited a “state rich in character and quality of men”, adding, “I believe I inherited a wealthy state with great potentials. Potentials that need to be nursed and harnessed. I come with the intellect, the capacity, humility and fear of God to harness all of these resources for the betterment of the people of Cross River State”.

Stating that he has a clear picture of the direction he is taking the state, he said he has kept to his promise to pay workers salary before the 25th of every month.

On the issues facing the nation, 55 years after independence, Ayade called for a reversal of the privatization policy describing it as totally unacceptable as it did not augur well with the true African philosophy of providing a shoulder for a brother to lean on.

Besides, he said our present state of development does not support privatization.

He reiterated the reason for his stance on tax exemption for low income earners with his background playing a vital role and called for a change in the contracting philosophy of government.

“I come as somebody who understands the challenges having been on the other side, today, to create a new calisthenics, creating new kinetics that will in turn create a new economy which will restructure, refocus and redirect government to make sure that government serves the people and that is what I represent. This is the reason I say don’t trust me but have faith in me. In the fullness of time I shall earn your trust”.

Earlier, the Catholic Archbishop of Calabar Archdiocese, Most Reverend Joseph Ekuwem in his sermon called for attitudinal change from every Nigerian if the country must get out of the woods.

Ekuwem who said he wept upon hearing Ayade’s story during the thanksgiving ceremony urged Ayade to look at complaints squarely, give a listening ear to everyone who seeks his attention and then filter.

He noted that Ayade becoming the governor was an act of God, chanting a hymn “when God says yes, nobody can say no” to drive home his point.
