Bishop Josef Bassey the Spiritual Leader of God’s Heritage Global Nation and Convener of Cross River State Christian Leaders Forum has urged residents of the State not to misconstrue the approve of Governor Bassey Otu to administering the state as any form of weakness not slack.
Bishop Bassey who expressed confidence in and called for sustained support for the young administration of Governor Bassey Edet Otu in Cross River State, said the governor should rather be seen as being meticulous in approach following the enormity of the challenges he inherited from his predecessor.
Speaking when interviewed in his office in Calabar, Bishop Bassey said Governor Otu is a leader with a heart of patriotism who is committed to his promises and agenda for good governance.
In his words, “the expectations of the people had been high but the governor may not be moving with the speed expected by some persons because of the enormity of things he inherited.”
“A few may even begin to criticize but that should be. It is common knowledge that Governor Otu inherited very week institutions of State such as the State Public Service. He is taking proper steps at addressing them.”
He cited as a mark of leadership to the credit to Governor Otu that “he inherited so much dilapidation in all institutions in the State but he is not complaining, rather he is finding solutions.”
“It is commendable that the Governor swore in Commissioners to head various ministries and he issued each of them a template of responsibilities with timelines. So every commissioner understands what is expected of him or her and no one crosses boundaries.”
He called on Nigerian’s and residence in the state to keep hope alive and not to lose faith for better days ahead saying, we must be able to help each other and imbibe our African culture of communal living.
He said “one thing that has kept us as nation despite numerous difficulties, it is our resilience. We should all keep hope alive. I am persuaded that Cross River State is in for better days.”
