Ayade is BusinessDay Best Governor in Agriculture
Cross River State Governor, Professor Ben Ayade has won BusinessDay Newspaper Award for the Best Performing Governor in Agriculture.
 
The Newspaper said the award was in recognition of Professor Ayade's revolutionary strides in Agriculture.
 
Only recently, President Muhammadu Buhari was in Calabar, the Cross River state capital ,to commission Africa's first and only Rice seeds and Seedling Factory.
 

The factory is one of professor Ayade's signature agricultural projects.
 
 
At the commissioning, President Buhari commended the governor for keying into the economic diversification policy of his administration by investing heavily in agriculture, discribing him as a reference point in agricultural revolution.
 
 
Professor Ayade who has often spoken of his determination to decouple Cross River State from over dependence on oil- driven federal allocation through diversification of the state's economy, is also building an ultramodern rice mill in Ogoja, a 30000 per anum cocoa processing plant in Ikom.
 
 
He has also established a cotton farm in Woda, Yala,  Banana Plantation in Odukpani. Work has also commenced on the Calabar ultra mordern poultry farm and  yellow maize farm in Obubra  among others.
The Business Day Award which will be confered on the governor on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at the prestigious Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, is the latest in a string of awards that have been confered on Professor Ayade in recognition of his achievements since assuming office three years ago.
