Border reopening: Protect yourselves, Ayade tells Cross River residents

THE Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ben Ayade, has urged the people of the state to take responsibility by protecting themselves from contracting coronavirus as the Federal Government reopens state borders across the country.

Ayade gave the advice while celebrating the COVID-19 free status of the state along with members of his cabinet and other aides at the Government House in Calabar.

He said Cross River invested billions of naira to fight the virus, adding that “for people to doubt our COVID-19 free status is not to notice the billions of naira spent on fighting the virus.”

He said the state would gain nothing by hiding the virus as that could result in mass deaths in the state.

Ayade said, “Dear Cross Riverians, I must congratulate all of you for going through phase one without any confirmed case of COVID-19. With the easing of restrictions and the opening of borders and the airport, it’s actually time for all of us to individually shut down. Take responsibility; protect yourself.”
