Eyo Ekpo, the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the 2019 elections in Cross River State, has called for the impeachment of the state governor, Professor Ben Ayade, over several impeachment offences he has committed in the last few months.

The popular politician, who was the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice during Donald Duke’s administration, berated the State House of Assembly for ignoring the impeachment process.

Ekpo, while addressing media men, noted that members of the State House of Assembly are turning deaf ears to Ayade’s excesses.

“Look, we have had four budgets and he has not implemented any of them; he has been spending money without accounting, without publicly accounting for it.

“Look at how he has been running government, he calls his brother co-governor.

“His brother has more influence in government than the deputy governor; all these are impeachable offences.

“Unfortunately, nobody in the House will make a move to impeach him. Ayade will not and cannot be impeached even if he goes to Watt market and beheads a man in the afternoon,” Ekpo said.
