APC kicks as Rivers Governor returns to school

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State has faulted the decision by the state Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade to return to school.

The State Chairman of APC, Mr. John Ochala while interacting with Journalists in Calabar on Tuesday said any serious-minded governor will not leave governance for school, alleging that “the state had been handed over to an unserious person who has continued to drag it backwards.

Ochalla maintained the APC had always warned that “the governor was never a serious person in the first place”.


“We are talking about dilapidated roads all over the state, look at our schools, our health infrastructure, our revenue generation capacity, and all other infrastructure. These are not enough to bother a governor. All that bothers him is to use public funds to go to school. Why didn’t he go to school when he was a Senator?”

Adding, “he is doing this to divert peoples’ attention from his failed administration. If I may ask; of what socio-political or economic value to Cross Riverians is his going to school? The schools he attended before now, how has he impacted the knowledge on Cross Riverians other than economic underdevelopment?”

The governor recently registered for his Master’s degree to study Law at the University of Calabar and the action has received knocks from a cross-section of the public, with many people recalling that Governor Ayade believed to be a professor only filled BSc as his qualification in the data form of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

“Look at the various white elephant projects he said he was carrying out without any tangible impact on the state. Let the governor tell us how much he has generated so far from all his so-called projects. Because he is actually idle doing nothing, he wants to go to school so that he will tell the students in that university that he is the governor of the state. Ayade likes showmanship.

“You will notice that he travels outside the state too often. A man who has challenges in the state, including communal clashes here and there, will not travel like that and that is to show you that he has been idle. Now he wants to be busy, not with governance, but driving siren to school to be cheered by students,” the party said.

  1. It's not fair on the people of the state. He should resign and go to school or wait till his tenure expires. Affairs of a state is on a minute basis. It demands total attention, we are talking about millions of people
