"I appointed 38,000 political aides to reduce poverty" - Governor Ayade

New APC political member and Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade, has revealed why he appointed over 38,000 political aides. According to him, he says he appointed the thousands of political aides to curb poverty.

He made the statement while speaking on Arise Tv. In his words:

"In politics talk is cheap. I have history. I know clearly that poverty is extreme and I decided to bring 38,000 young people into the dining table to allow me the emotional and social temperature to take advantage of my business connection to bring value to Cross River state,. 

"These people are bringing values. I have several projects ongoing. All of these need people to manage. Besides let’s deal with it, if you look at the principles, section 14 of our constitution: the primary purpose of government is the welfare and security for the people. Of what use would it be to build a super highway or a deep sea port when 4.5 million people are dying out of hunger. It’s better to put food on a table than to put food on concrete. These 38,000 people have not only brought value, they’ve reduced poverty."

While speaking about his dumping of APC for PDP, he says the move was important because Cross River is challenged and so many oil wells have been lost. 

In his words: "Cross River state is challenged. We’ve lost oil wells; we’ve lost our territory. We seem to come from a minority section. We can’t also afford extreme opposition and I’ve always believed that moderation is the rule."
