Information reaching CrossRiverWatch indicate that at least five members of the Cross River State Executive Council, SEC will be leaving the council this week to concentrate on their election campaigns.

The five which include Commissioners and Special Advisers from the northern part of the state who are eyeing the governorship are Mr. Patrick Ugbe, Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Mr. Legor Idagbo, Commissioner for Works, Mr. Peter Ojie, Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Mr. Gerald Adah, Special Adviser, Investment Promotion and Mr. Peter Oti, Special Adviser, Budget Monitoring and Evaluation and Acting Chairman, State Internal Revenue Service.

It will be recalled that Governor Imoke in a meeting with his aides recently noted that some of them only informed him via text messages of their intention to contest for the governorship and gave any of them who had interest in the state number one seat ultimatum to resign and concentrate on their campaigns.

Some of the Commissioners and Special Advisers who spoke to CrossRiverWatch but didn’t want to be named confirmed that they will be resigning from the SEC this week as the governor has demanded and face their consultations and campaigns towards the February 2015 election.
