Governor Ayade sacks four commissioners and five other appointees

Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, has sacked four commissioners from his cabinet.

Christian Ita, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, disclosed this to newsmen in a statement released today May 31.

According to the statement, the affected commissioners include Mike Usibe (New City Development), Rita Ayim (Women Affairs), Asu Okang (Information), and Ntufam Etim (Climate Change). Ita added that the governor has also relieved five other appointees of their appointments. They include Leo Inyambe, Orok Duke, Victor Okon, John Bassey, and Mbeh Agbiji.

While no reason was given for the Governor’s action, he thanked the affected commissioners and appointees for their services to the state and wished them well in their future endeavours. They were, however, asked to return the government properties and vehicles in their possession to the Chief of Staff to the Governor.

This decision comes weeks after the governor defected from the PDP to the ruling APC.
