Former minister for Culture and National Orientation, High Chief Edem Duke has pledged to return Cross River State to an investment heaven if given the mandate to govern the state in 2019.

Duke made the pledge yesterday in Calabar while presenting himself to the state leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) regarding his gubernatorial ambition and solicited for their support.

The former minister stated that government of Cross River State under his watch go extra length to formulate policies that would make entrepreneurship thrive in the state instead of meddling in entrepreneurship.

“My administration would have no business meddling in entrepreneurship but will have business to formulate policies that will make entrepreneurship thrive”, he said.

In his words, ”This is procedural, appropriate, traditional and in consonance with best democratic practices.

“And for every aspirant who desires to fly the flag of the party, especially at a high level as governorship election or primaries as the case maybe, it is important to intimate the most important organ of the party in the state. Sought approval to meet with state working committee as well as the state executive council of the party in order to share with them my aspiration, my vision.”
