An Aso Rock translator and Facebook user, Ifere Paul, took to the platform to call out the Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade, over the chicken pupils in the state were served.
According to the Aso Rock translator who shared a photo of the chicken, this is apart from deduction of #15,000 from the money paid to the food vendors. Here’s what he wrote;
This is the chicken which Cross River State government is feeding primary school pupils in Cross River State.
The SSA on Home Grown Feeding Program to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State is bringing this chicken from Uyo. Fry them there and then begin to transport them to Cross River State. This is apart from deduction of 15 Thousand Naira from the monies paid to the food vendors.
This chicken is fried and stored under serious unhealthy and unhygienic conditions.
By the time they fried the chicken and bring to Calabar, some are already rotten and smelling before they reach places like Odukpani, Akampkpa, Biase, Yakurr, Obubra, etc.
It is very bad that government can be this mean. It is so sad that people appointed to serve are the same people fowling the efforts of the federal government in Cross River State.
If Ayade children were studying in Cross River State, would he allow SSA feed his children with this rotten chicken?
The President must hear this.
This is coming after the Vice Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Cross River State Council, Comrade Edim Oyongha said the State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade who was in the past described as best labour friendly Governor by NLC was a disappointment.
Comrade Oyongha told DAILY POST in an interview in Calabar that the Paris Fund was specifically meant for payment of gratuity, unfortunately, the pensioners have remained for several years without payment.
