Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State seems to be on his own after his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as many of his Commissioners, Special Advisers, Assistants and other political appointees have abandoned their offices.
It was gathered that various offices and Ministries of the top appointees were empty.
Some staff working with some of the appointees told DailyPost that their bosses said they cannot work under Gov Ayade/APC-led government.
“My bosses had said openly that they cannot work under Gov Ayade-led APC government, hence they have to abandoned their offices.
“Most of those who defected with him said, they will come back to PDP during the elections.
“It’s only that they have nothing doing for now, hence they went with him. When the chip is down, they will decide.
“Gov Ayade will be shocked because more people will abandon him. He has no structure on ground,” they claimed.
