The Cross River State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Monday, called on the State House of Assembly to impeach the state Governor Ben Ayade for several constitutional breaches.

The call was made by the Chairman of the APC in the state, John Ochala, during a press conference in Calabar, the state capital.

The APC chairman averred that Ayade should be impeached for breaching the constitution as well as his lukewarm approach to the various security challenges facing the state.

Speaking alongside the National Vice Chairman of APC (South-South), Hilliard Eta, and a former member of House of Representatives, Paul Adah, the APC state chairman pointed out the recent kidnap of an APC chieftain in the state, Senator Patrick Ani.

Ochala said, “If the House of Assembly do not find any area for which to indict and consequently impeach Ayade, we wish to point to them that the governor has consistently stayed out of the state for a period longer than what the constitution prescribes, without duly transmitting the reins of governance to his deputy as prescribed by the relevant statutes.

“Also, he has acted contrary to the provisions laid out in the second schedule of the Constitution by attempting to, among others to create a police force in the guise of Green Police, Homeland Security, which are in the exclusive preserve of the Federal Government.”
