One of the governor’s new appointees is Adamu Musa from Kano State. Musa is the new Commissioner for Inter-governmental Affairs in Cross River State, South-South Nigeria.

A report by the News Agency for Nigeria noted that Eric Anderson, the former culture and tourism commissioner was appointed as the information and orientation commissioner while Dr Janet Ekpenyong, the former Director-General of the state primary healthcare development agency was appointed as the health commissioner.

Addressing the new appointees in Calabar, the state capital on Tuesday, Ayade, “Your coming on board is not by accident. You have been carefully selected based on your integrity and competence to bring your wealth of experience to bear on our administration.


“Your jobs are all cut out for you, I expect that you make our dear state proud.”
