APC governorship aspirants allege selective payment of salaries in Cross River state


Ben Ayade

An All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant for 2019 and former member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Paul Adah has berated the Cross River state government for selective payment of workers salaries. 

He said the non-payment of salary to workers in some government departments was a slight on the people of the state saying his coming into office in 2019 will rescue workers and the state from all anomalies.

Adah who said this recently while hosting seven chapter chairmen of the party from the southern senatorial district of the state, stated: “You can imagine that it is only few government workers that were paid. There are others who are owed some months like the workers in the Cross River Geographic Information Agency.


“A lot of valuable roads have been destroyed since 2016 in the name of dualisation with no real intention to complete them. Look at the Mfom-Okpoma-Obudu project; it’s long been abandoned since the governor did the ground breaking in October 2016.”

Adah, an indigene of Obudu in the northern senatorial district, pledged that he would run for a single term of four years if elected as governor so as to complete north eight years and return power to the southern district in line with the zoning formula of the state.

He said that the civil service in the state was grinding to a halt under leadership of Governor Ayade, adding that there was an urgent need to reposition the service to its proper shape, adding, “let me officially inform you that I want to offer myself for service in 2019 as governor. The Ayade-led administration has destroyed the entire state and we need to come together for a rescue mission.

“As a man who spent over 20 years in the civil service, the condition of service I see today under Ayade is so disheartening. Civil servants are no longer sent out for trainings, offices that require impress to work don’t get anything again. This is why we need to rescue our people.”
