On behalf of the Government and good people of Cross River State,I  heartily congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari,GCFR;Vice President,Prof. Yemi Osinbajo,GCON;President of the Senate-Dr.Ahmed Lawan,Speaker,Federal House of Representatives,Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila;Chief Justice of Nigeria,Justice Tanko Muhammed;otherMembers of the red and green chambers of the National Assembly,Members of the Federal Executive Council;Leadership of all Political Parties and indeed all Nigerians on this auspicious commemoration of the 2020 Democracy Day in our dear Country.

 On this 21st Anniversary of our hard earned democracy in our nation, we celebrate  specially,our  digital  Governor,His Excellency,Sir(Prof) Ben Ayade for his unflinching commitment to promoting the ideals and deepening democracy in our State.
We identify with his unwavering resolve to the continued provision of the dividends of democracy ,through the vigorous industrialization drive of our state and the unprecedented expansion of Government to accommodate more people on the table.
These are clear indicators that Cross River under His watch,is in for a completely New Democratic order.

We also congratulate our Deputy Governor,His Excellency,Prof Ivara Ejemot Esu,OFR,Rt.Hon. Eteng Jonah Williams-Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly and Members;Members of the Cross River  State Executive Council,all Local Government Chairmen and Councillors;Party Leaders and all lovers of democracy in Cross River State for sustaining representative governance in our dear State.

The significance of JUNE 12 as DEMOCRACY DAY in the history of our nation can not be over-emphasized.Twenty-one years on,Nigerians are trudging on to democratic greatness.This is indeed a strong indication that the struggles of our heroes past are never in vain.
We therefore call on President  Mohammadu Buhari GCFR to see to the plight of The Bakassi people by supporting the genuine effort of Cross River State Government in the resettlement agenda. As a true democrat, may we also remind Mr President,that Cross Riverians are eagerly waiting for the realization of His promise to return to the state for the commissioning of the super highway project.He should as a matter of priority,activate machinery in motion to handhold the Cross River State Government through to the speedy completion of the project which is already recording plausible milestones.

For us in the current dispensation,June 12 should therefore ignite in us and challenge us to strive diligently,not only to deliver the many dividends of democracy for the over all good of the citizenry but also work hard to promote and sustain this hard earned democracy at all level of governance in our nation.

This commitment,we believe, shall continually be upheld in  Cross River State in the years to come.

Happy 2020 Democracy Day Nigerians.
