Gov Ayade appoints 427 new aides, including SA on Groundnut Oil Factory

The Cross River state governor, Ben Ayade has approved the appointment of 427 new aides.

The statement released on Monday by the governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Christian Ita, reveals that the appointees include chairmen, members of boards of agencies, and special assistants.

One of the appointees is a Special Assistant on Groundnut Oil Factory.

“there’s nothing wrong with that given that we’re building a groundnut oil factory. Besides, it is the duty of the government to create jobs for its citizens.

“The governor has said repeatedly that he only needs about five percent of his appointees. So he deliberately creates these jobs to put food on the table, so as to reduce social tension.”

In January 2020, the governor approved the appointment of 90 aides, bringing the total number of his aides to about 517.
