These are old Photos. Ayade is a cursr to Cross River. Educated but very timid and loaded with pride of life and very self conceited. The only project in those photos is the proposed Obudu Airport. And like several of his high-sounding, yet deceptive projects, the Airport development ended just there, . . .A sign post of Proposed site of heaven on earth, deep sea port, Cross River Super Highway, Calabar nuclear reactor, Cross River Silicon Valley or Aeroplane production industries bla bla bla . . .but it end there in sign posts only. He does nothing after that.
