Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Cross River State, Alphonsus Eba, has threatened that the APC is set to relieve 7,000 of Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade’s appointees of their appointments.
Eba who made this known at a media briefing in Calabar, this past Tuesday, added that all of those appointees who had not registered as members of APC, have up till December 31, 2021 to register or be relieved of their appointments on January 1, 2021.
He also insisted that if the appointees are relieved of their appointments, their positions will be filled by APC members, citing article 9(5) of the APC constitution which bars members from taking appointment with the government of other political parties.
Eba informed too that members of the newly elected state executive visited aggrieved members of the party and “had interactions with aggrieved members of our party. In the last count, not fewer than 100 distinguished party members, young, old, major, minor have been visited. The belief of every party member is that APC is the party to be in,” he said.
When the contentious issue of zoning of the governorship came up, he responded that, “zoning is not a problem in APC. It is that of PDP.”
