Become cocoa farmers — Governor Ben Ayade tells civil servants

The Cross River governor, Ben Ayade, has urged civil servants in the state to delve into cocoa production as relying solely on salaries is no longer fashionable.

The governor stated this at the flag-off ceremony of the first phase of the 2022 improved cocoa seedlings farming in Cross River.

According to him, “With the kind of fertile rainforest that Cross River is endowed with, people can go into cocoa production to turn around their fortunes rather than depend on their salaries that may not be sustainable.

I advise workers in the state to fully go into cocoa production so as to better their lots after retirement, as cocoa is one of the crops that can grow even on rocks.”
