By Udido Azaka, Calabar

Governor Ben Ayade has reiterated his desire to support Cross River South Central Senatorial District to produce his successor in 2023.

Ayade who stated this while interacting with newsmen in Calabar, also reiterated  his support for fairness and equity, saying that it was natural and just to encourage the South to produce the next governor of the state in 2023.

He said, “Politics with ethics implies natural justice and fairness with a view of giving all the zones in the state a sense of belonging to feel the taste of political power.

“In 2015, I went round to campaign and in the process, I told the people to vote for me that in 2023 power will return to the South.

“The governorship slot started from the South, and then moved to Central and now to the North Senatorial District. It is fair that power returns to the South again for equity and fairness,”  he said.

On his industrialisation agenda, Ayade said that his administration has remained focused with its plans and programmess. He described the chicken processing factory; ”Chalachika”, as an example, saying that it is now producing chickens at optimal capacity and at an affordable price.
