Our Correspondent|20 January 2017 In her quest to further project the state to the international community, the Cross River State Government has concluded plans to domesticate the National archive law. The law when domesticated would help secure the State’s cultural heritage and values. Disclosing this in Calabar, the Commissioner for Information, Cross River State, Pastor Mrs Rosemary Archibong said the role of the media in Nigeria in nation-building cannot be underestimated. To this end, she challenged the media to be more responsive and committed to the national interest of the country.
The commissioner, who commended the media for the positive reportage of the activities of Governor Ayade and the Cross River State Government noted; “we must continue to work together to project the State positively. We must tell our stories.The State has done a lot under Governor Ben Ayade, like the Garment Factory, Bakassi deep seaport, super high way, Rice mill etc; our Governor is somebody with great optimism”. She further observed that the good works of Governor Ayade which have been adequately reported positively on the media has led to massive influx of   foreign investors to the State to identify with the Governor’s signature projects.
Her words:  “Investors are falling over themselves to fund the signature projects of the Governor. All this are courtesy of the zeal and determination they have seen in the Governor and potentials of the State. “Governor Ayade has made all these happen because of his passion and dream. ‘He is a man with great ideas and his ultimate goal is to move Cross River from a third world  state to a first world state.” On the efforts of the Governor on climate change, Mrs Archibong posited “Cross River State has done a lot to get the attention of the world on climatic change hazard. The last two edition of the Calabar carnival which is the largest street party in the world had been dedicated to promoting climatic change issues. You can see a great determination on the side of our governor to make a statement and a huge impact on humanity. He wants the world to compensate the State for all it has suffered for climatic change. As we all know,” Cross River has 58 percent of forestry in the country.” She added NegroidHaven… Truth in view of Africa's liberty!
