The Cross River State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade has maintained that motivation remains the surest way of getting the best out of young people who are taking the right decisions.

The governor made this assertion while announcing the sum of N10million for his Senior Special Assistant, Events, Mr. Tom Ikpeme for effectively packaging the just concluded Miss Africa, Climate Change pageant in Calabar.

The governor further disclosed that he did that to encourage young talents and hard work and explained that Miss Africa is a dream which he conceived to bring Africans together and that today over 400milion people over the world watched the Miss Africa, talking of Africa unity.

Speaking earlier the Special Adviser, Governor’s Office and Events, Mr. Kenn Aklah, said that few months ago when the governor conceived the idea of Miss Africa, it looked unachievable, but due to the commitment and consistency of the governor, the dream has become a reality with over 400 million people watching the maiden edition of Miss Africa globally, and that the issues of climate change were very dear to Cross River and will be the prime responsibility of the new Queen to promote.

Aklah stated that, “by Saturday when this event was being beamed live, we have populated acceptance and more than 340 million people were trending and watching and following live the event all over the world. The Queen is an Ambassador of Africa and Cross River state representing us to talk on issues of climate change which are very dear to us as a state, and there was the need to integrate Africa”.

The SA Governor’s Office said that the Miss Africa contest has equally helped to boost the Cross River State tourism and the industrial revolution being initiated by the Governor Ben Ayade led administration in the state.
