These brave men and women gave their yesterday for us to enjoy the peace and tranquility of today". "The governor, Sen. Prof. Ben Ayade, last year made donations running into millions and this year he did the same, and this shows it’s a continuous process for him and the State. The Cross River State Government partnered with the Nigerian Armed Forces to this course by organizing this medical outreach to further show our gratitude as a State for their gallantry.
