Ayade To Aides: Resign If You Lack Capacity

In Breaking News, Politics

By Ushang Ewa

In what may be viewed as uncharacteristic of him, Cross River Governor, Benedict Ayade has asked his aides to voluntarily resign if they can’t perform to his taste.

A statement issued by his spokesman, Christian Ita on Wednesday said this was in line with his “commitment to finishing strong by accomplishing all the set-out goals of his administration.”

In what seemed an indictment on his choice of appointees, Mr. Ayade said he will “no longer tolerate any slack from commissioners and heads of departments, agencies and parastatals,” the statement read.

Mr. Ayade who has announced over 4,000 appointments so far in his second term in office has always said that he needs less than one percent of his aides to work while the rest were “to put food on the table.”

“Consequently, His Excellency is by this announcement requesting voluntary resignations from commissioners and heads of departments, agencies and Parastatals who manifestly lack the capacity or will to deliver on their mandates.

“His Excellency believes that it is more dignifying to resign honorably and quietly than to be relieved of the appointment,” the statement added.

Mr. Ayade subsequently announced the suspension of two aides including the head of the revenue board.
