|John Gaul Lebo, Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly|
On behalf of the entire Honourable Members of the Cross River State 8th Legislative Assembly, I wish to felicitate their Excellences the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) and Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (GCON); the Governor of Cross River State, Prof (Senator) Ben Ayade and his Deputy, Prof Ivara Esu on the occasion of Nation’s 56th Independence Anniversary.
As we celebrate this national birthday, we believe with no strand of doubt in His Excellency, governor Ayade’s motivated vision to liberate the state from economic strangulation.
We envisage a Cross River that will be truly financially independent through your administrative engineering, even as we look forward to an effervescent Cross River/Nigeria economy in the nearest future.
This is our desire. This is the desire of the people of Cross River.
God bless Nigeria!
God bless Cross River State!!!
Rt. Hon John Gaul Lebo
Speaker of Cross River State House of Assembly
