Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade has described the State Branch Chairman of Nigeria Institution of Surveyors, NIS, Njar Gertrude Nnanjar as a hard working woman that can compete with men fervently. Ayade made the assertion while speaking at the 2015 induction ceremony of the Calabar Sport Club 1898 over the weekend at the Club secretariat, Calabar where 41 new members were inducted.
Represented by his deputy, Ivara Ejemot Esu, Ayade said: “I congratulate Gertrude Nnanjar, the only woman being inducted today. She’s a strong woman that can compete with men; she’s a hard working woman. I congratulate her specially”.
Esu said that the present administration led by his boss, Ben Ayade is in love with sports but could not make sure the National Sports Festival holds as scheduled because as at the time they came on board “we had challenges of workers’ salaries and we couldn’t let go of that for the festival, that is not to say we don’t support sports,” he said.
Ayade ended by saying he is impressed with the level of discipline exhibited in the club and encouraged members to be steadfast in maintaining the club rules and regulations. Assuring that, “We are solidly behind the club”.
Earlier the President of the club, Romanus Eriom in his speech revealed that, “the induction of new members has become necessary as age, retirement, transfer/relocation, changing economy, ill health and death have taken a toll on membership, financial and developmental strength of the club.
“In line with the changing world and change in Nigeria, the club is also changing in all aspects, gone are the days when majority of the club members were civil servants, today membership is open to all responsible Nigerians, foreigners and co-operate bodies in different fields of life, with strong affinity to sports, socials, business, club, human and community development,” Eriom said.
In conclusion, Eriom charged the club members saying, “Maintain the club constitution, we expect from you all a very high level of discipline, self respect and respect for others. Be reminded that this club is non-ethnic, non-religious and non-political.”
