The Sen. Ben Ayade led administration soon to unbundle policy of “Food On The Table” in Cross River State which has catered for over 6000 appointees in the past 3 years and some months has been likened to an al majeri system.

According to Mr. Edo Owan, a Public Affairs Analyst this evening when speaking as a guest on “The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo” a huge portion of Ayade’s appointees has no job description but are on Government payroll.

Analysing the Governor’s decision to reshuffle his cabinet and maintain a smaller Government Mr. Edo said “I support him, his second term somehow depended on the number of appointees. Ayade created an al majeri system where people collected pay for doing nothing.”

About how the Governor was able to sustain paying the over 6000 appointees he maintained, “Truth be told, he surprised me with being able to sustain it this far, I didn’t think it would be possible. I had friends who rejected appointments because of fear of sustainability. At any point in time I don’t think we need this large number of appointees.”

He concluded by suggesting that the Federal Character system of governance will pay better if adopted because it’s easier to run.
