Governor Ayade commended Ganduje and his bloc for the choice of Akpabio for senate president.
The Cross River Governor said: “I want to thank you so much for zoning the Senate President to the South-South and to our brother from a neighbouring state, who is also part of Cross River State.
“We want to thank you for this great opportunity because our dream of a Bakassi seaport is becoming very real.”
