Cross River State Governor, Liyel Imoke, has urged the staff of the World Bank-Assisted State And Local Governance Reform Project (SLOGOR) to focus on the task given to them so that they can succeed.

Imoke stated this while inaugurating a 21-man team of State Technical Committee (STC) members of SLOGOR in Calabar.

Represented by his Special Adviser on Department of International Corporation, Roy Ndoma-Egba, at the event, Imoke told members of the committee to work in tandem with provisions of the guidelines spell out by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA).

Imoke warned that any team member who infringes on guidelines provided by initiators of the project would be made to face the wrath of the law.

He stated that government was well prepared to ensure that the project, which is financed by IBRD, IDA, Credits, Loans and Grants, succeeds.

The governor urged members of the committee, who are yet to put their financial records straight, to do so in order to ensure that Cross River serves as a model to other states in handling the project.

He said the successful implementation of the project would encourage the World Bank to bring more of such projects to the state.

The project coordinator in the state, Bassey Ebri Asuquo, charged staff of the project to ensure that there is devolution of power so as to achieve maximum result.

Asuquo appealed to team members to provide the necessary technical assistance whenever the need arises.

Asuquo promised that the members of the committee would succeed in executing the task assigned to them.
