Gov. Ayade, on inspection of the Obudu Airport yesterday, is quoted again as swearing that if he doesn’t complete the Airport at Obudu, he should be banished from there. No sir banishing you is not what we want. We want at least one completed project to show that we once had a Governor from here.
Please how about the Superhighway? And Deep Seaport that you swore to the entire world to complete?
Should we forget those henceforth? You have been on record swearing by your mother’s grave, your father’s grave in the past…
You even volunteered that we should judge your success or failure on those two projects. Are we to add the Airport or replace them with it?
And the dual carriage way across the Northern Senatorial District. It is still less than 30% done. What are we to expect? Do we add it to the banishment list or do we assume that it is for the next administration to complete?
The Spaghetti Flyover has already become a fish pond elsewhere. The Canadian School at Obudu is still under construction after 3/4 years. The “International Hospital” at Obudu too!
The changing stories are making it difficult for us to believe that anything meaningful will come out of these projects apart from dashed hopes.
Your Excellency, Sir,. You have 34 months to the end of your tenure. We are still hoping and praying that you make them meaningful.
We don’t want you to leave us empty. Your personal wealth, hearing that you also used the occasion of the inspection of the project to announce that you are now the richest man to ever come from Obudu, will not be available to all of us. It is public projects that will remain what we will remember you by.
