Prominent citizens in Cross River North have lauded Governor Ben Ayade over the completion and commencement of production of the Ogoja Vitaminised Rice Mill.

Speaking shortly after witnessing the production process, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dornklaimz  Enamhe, commended Ayade for the achievement.

Enamhe said: “The governor is in All Progressives Congress (APC), l am in PDP. l am the Director General of Senator Jarigbe Agom’s Campaign Organisation, but this is not about politics. This is about efforts, hard work and the people and l must commend him. There is no need to talk party here. Let us be sincere, what l saw was mind-blowing and very impressive.”

Similarly, another PDP member in the state, Chief Ikani Wogar, described the mill as one that would provide employment opportunities for the people.

“This investment will give employment to sons and daughters of Ogoja. We thank His Excellency so much for industrialising Ogoja, especially this rice mill.”

The King of Ishiborr, Ntol Mbeje Amar III, who also witnessed the production of rice at the mill, lauded the governor for the feat.

While stating that the mill would be of immense benefit to the people, the monarch declared: “All the rice harvest that will be done from now on in Ogoja will be milled here. We thank the governor immensely. We have seen the rice, we have tasted it and it is so clean. All the machines, we have seen the way they work”.
