The Resignation Letter from Ugba Murphy
The Resignation Letter from Ugba Murphy

About seven aides and one cabinet member in Cross River governor, Ben Ayade’s administration have met with bigwigs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) with a defection plan in place findings by CrossRiverWatch can reveal.

The appointees, CrossRiverWatch gathered from impeccable sources are tired of the administrative style of the governor and held series of meetings throughout last week till date with a commissioner even sending a representative at one of such meetings held in Abuja with the national vice chairman (south south) of the APC, Hilliard Etta.

The appointees cited lack of a job schedule, money and their not being able to see the governor months after been appointed as reasons for their disenchantment. It is unclear how the defection plan has being mapped out and what deal has been strucked so far.

These meetings precede the current resignation of the Special Adviser on Strategy and National Contacts to the governor, Ray Ugba Murphy who left as the editorial board chairman of the African Independent Television to contest in the senatorial race in northern Cross River State.

Ugba in a letter dated July 18, 2016 and addressed to the governor said his belief system does not permits his receiving of wages “no matter how small for work not done” as his advice was neither sought nor taken when offered.

It will be recalled that late last year, some people had rejected the appointments of the governor with their excuses bordering on principles as criticisms kept trailing the numerous appointments made by him.
