Cross River’s Governor, Ben Ayade, has sacked four commissioners from his cabinet.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Christian Ita, announced this in a statement on Monday in Calabar, the state capital.
The affected commissioners are Mike Usibe (New City Development), Rita Ayim (Women Affairs), Asu Okang (Information), and Ntufam Etim (Climate Change).
Governor Ayade also relieved five other appointees – Leo Inyambe, Orok Duke, Victor Okon, John Bassey, and Mbeh Agbiji of their appointments.
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.
