The Governor of Cross River State, Professor Ben Ayade, has sacked 4 four commissioners and 5 special assistants over their refusal to defect with him from PDP to APC.

Their sack was revealed in a statement signed by Christian Ita, chief press secretary to Ayade, and released Monday.

“One of the commissioners was Rita Anyim, who conspicuously identified with former governor Liyel Imoke and other PDP stalwarts when they public disclaimed Ayade for forcibly converting PDP state Secretariat to APC Secretariat using armed policemen.

“Others are former commissioner for information, Asu Okang, Ntufam Donatus Etim and Mike Usibe who all frowned at Ayade’s actions.
