The acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State, John Ochalla has berated Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade for proposing a new logo for the state, describing it as a manifestation of his occult inclinations.
This was contained in a statement signed and issued by him Tuesday where he accused Ayade of buffeting on the state’s commonwealth while the residents rot away and explained why the old logo should be retained.
“The juxtaposition of Nigeria and Cross River flags shows cross fertilization, cooperation and synergy of purpose.
“In his ill conceived logo, the bull is charging towards the local governments to destabilize it, no wonder the governor have been busy feasting on the revenue allocation due to this very important tier of government.
“The All Progressive Congress Calls on the State Government to try and be responsible for once by paying attention to more pressing issues that are begging for attention like the payment of pension/ gratuities , payment of salaries of the forty young lawyers employed in the state ministry of justice almost a year ago and other employees yet to be pay-rolled , provision of clean and portable water, waste disposal to avoid communicable disease, securing life’s and property of cross Riverians and others living in cross river state, providing enabling environment for businesses to grow, providing job opportunities and gainful employment for our teeming young graduates, school leavers and artisans.
“We are very much aware of the occult inclination of his choice of the red Color and a bull, we do not subscribe to it in any way or form, enough of this Governance by Voodoo,” the statement read.
