Cross River State governor, Prof Ben Ayade, Tuesday said the stage is set to receive the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo's visit to the state.
Ayade stated this in Calabar yesterday, while fielding questions from newsmen on the planned visit of Osinbajo scheduled for Thursday this week.
'We are working day and night to ensure that the Acting President takes a guided tour around the pharmaceutical industry and the Ayade industrial park, Calabar International Convention Centre, Monorail and Power plant among others to see all we have accomplished within two years and the galaxy of our achievements within the limits of what we have,' the governor intimated.
Continuing, Ayade said: 'As we are running up and down in preparation of the visit, it gives us an opportunity to calibrate our efforts and look at what we have done and see where we need structural changes and certain framework that we need to institute, while we prepare for his reception.'
Reasoning that his administration will continue to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in the state, the governor added that the concept of creating jobs is going to be different especially with the advent of the pharmaceutical industry which in the next three months, will be ready.
Ayade also said: 'We can't be tourism service suppliers, we want to be tourists ourselves in our state. That means we must commoditise government to bring money as well as add value,' pointing out that, 'we must bring in areas of core needs of the Ayadesian theory, not just putting food on your table, but putting a hoe in your hands.'
While appreciating God for sparing the nation and keeping it together as an indivisible entity as Nigeria marks 18 years of uninterrupted democracy, Ayade enjoined those in governance to do all they can, so as to gain economic democracy.
