Imoke Explains Appointments
CALABAR, March 22, (THEWILL) - Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke has disclosed that his choice of appointees as Special Advisers is to enhance service delivery to the people.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary and Special Assistant Media, Mr. Christian Ita, Imoke explained that the appointees were carefully chosen to assist in the task of furthering the development of the state, which has and still remains the cardinal objective of his administration.
The Governor also dismissed claims that there is disquiet in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over the appointment.
Besides consulting the leadership of the party before the appointments were announced, Imoke said there could not have been rumpus in the party over the appointments since all the appointees are indigenes of the state.
He therefore, urged the people to look at the track records of the appointees in their various fields of endeavours rather than party affiliations.
While re-affirming his respect for his party, the PDP, the Governor said the next three years will be critical in the state’s drive for development, hence the need to appoint competent persons to key positions in the administration.
He said he was certain that given the caliber of the appointees, the state will witness a faster pace of development.
