The Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade, says that he will, next week, name 300 political appointees to assist his government in carrying out its activities.
Ayade said that the soon-to-be appointed officials would be added to his over 800 political aides assisting him in running his government.
With this appointment, the total number of political appointees in Governor Ben Ayade’s administration would be 1,100.
He said that the measure was aimed at providing job for the unemployed and reduction of redundancy in the state.
The governor stated this yesterday while speaking in his office in Calabar.
He promised workers regular payment of salaries, saying: “I will rather spend my first four years paying salaries than playing politics with peoples’ welfare.
“The army of appointees is deliberate. I know that governance should be about helping people. This, I will honestly do as governor of this state.”
