Reports making the rounds suggest that the Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ben Ayade, punished his Special Advisor on Budget, Mr. Moses Onoh, for reportedly having a big mouth.
According to the information, the governor suspended his special advisor for leaking official information he had no right to reveal.
The suspension notice was revealed by Ayade’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Christian Ita.
According to Ita, Onoh’s suspension will take immediate effect. Details of the suspension and the information Onoh leaked are, however, unclear.
As a government official, discretion is a major criterion of the job description.
The governor has warned that he would have zero tolerance for government officials who abuse their office.
