The Cross River State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade has instructed all Commissioners and other political appointees to refrain from making public statements without clearance.
The directive is contained in statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita and made public by his subordinate Edward Ntebri.
See extract below.
“Henceforth no Commissioner or political appointee is allowed to showcase or make policy pronouncements on social media without seeking clearance from His Excellency.
“Every Commissioner is from now henceforth expected to prove himself or herself on the field rather than on the social media.
“On the dissemination of Government information, I want to make it abundantly clear that there are just two persons designated for the discharge of this function. That is the Commissioner for Information and Orientation as well as the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Christian Ita.”
