THE SPEAKER OF THE 9TH ASSEMBLY CALLS FOR THE PRIVATIZATION OF ALL INDUSTRIES IN CROSS RIVER STATE.

As part of efforts to build a greater Cross River State, the speaker of the house of Assembly has 
 reiterated their commitment to work harmoniously with Governor Ayade to take the state to greater heights.

This commitment was made in an exclusive interview with the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Communication and Advocacy - Beatrice Akpala on the weekly programme  ''INSIDE CROSS RIVER" that airs on CRBC TV and other social media platforms. 

The lawmaker commended the industrial and agricultural revolution of Governor Ayade in the State. He referred to Governor Ayade's Giant Strides as "a step in the right direction and an attempt that deserves a Nobel Laurette."

He further called for the privatization of all industries set up by Governor Ayade in the State. He said that his reason for choosing  privatisation is for the interest of the State and the functionality of those industries after the Ben Ayade led administration. He Re-emphasized that by 2023 when another administration comes on board with a different policy thrust that differs from Industrialisation, those industries will become moribund and that will be detrimental for us and Governor Ayade's effort would have been in vain. According to him the sustainable approach for us as a state is  privatisation to secure the future of all Cross Riverians.


Rt. Hon. Eteng stated that the 9th assmebly's focus is strictly on oversight functions, an attempt to monitor and evaluate the progress of the executive and the budget expended on projects so far, in order to deliver it's dividends to the citizenry.

He further assured Cross Riverians that the House will do it's best to propagate human-focused laws, such as the CRUTECH law, which will enable the institution access funds from TETFUND, Laws On Cultism, Human Trafficking And Other People Oriented Issues. 

On what has challenged him the most as speaker, He said managing his Constituents,the public, his colleagues, and his relationship with the Executive. he however, guaranteed that the best decisions will be considered at all times for the benefit of the greater populace.

In Conclusion, The Speaker stated that the 9th Assembly has 25 Passionate Members who think Cross River in all ramifications. He thanked Governor Ayade for providing Vehicles for all members for their oversight functions and he further reiterated that the 9th Assembly will be in the field with Governor Ayade to track the progress of all efforts of the BEN AYADE Led Administration. He also said that they will provide a leverage where whatever has been provided in the 2020 budget, where the money goes, they will go with it to see for themselves what the money is been used for. That this not a depensation where you appropriate money and allow any form of misusage of funds that the 9th Assembly Will Vehemently Oppose that.
