- The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River state is not happy with the decision of Governor Ben Ayade to return to school
- APC says the governor has left the state in the hands of those who are not capable of moving it out of the woods
- The party claims that it had warned the people of Cross River state against voting for people considered incompetent
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River has raised an alarm over the decision of the governor of the state to return to school while still in office.
John Ochala, chairman of the APC in the state, told journalists in Calabar, that it is lamentable that a supposed serious-minded governor would leave governance for school.
According to him, with the governor gone to school, the state has been handed over to an unserious person now dragging it backwards.
While noting that the APC had always warned the people of the state to get serious people to govern the state, Ochalla added: “We are talking about dilapidated roads all over the state, look at our schools, our health infrastructure, our revenue generation capacity, and all other infrastructure.
"These are not enough to bother a governor. All that bothers him is to use public funds to go to school. Why didn’t he go to school when he was a senator?”
To the APC chairman, the governor is simply returning to school to divert peoples’ attention from his failed administration.
He wondered how the governor's return to school would benefit the economy of Cross River people.
“Look at the various white elephant projects he said he was carrying out without any tangible impact on the state. Let the governor tell us how much he has generated so far from all his so-called projects.
"Because he is actually idle doing nothing, he wants to go to school so that he will tell the students in that university that he is the governor of the state. Ayade likes showmanship,” the APC said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Ayade had returned to school as a student of the University of Calabar after enrolling for a Masters Degree (LLM) in the institution’s Faculty of Law.
The governor attended lectures on Thursday, October 10 for over four hours and did assignments like other students.
