The wife of Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, Dr Linda Ayade has advised her husband against seeking re-election in 2019.
Gov. Ayade disclosed this on Friday when he formally commissioned the office building of the umbrella organization for all women associations in the state, Cross River Women Emancipation Initiative (CROWEI), established by his wife, and facilitated by the state ministry for women affairs.
“My wife cautioned me about seeking re-election for 2019. She has been worried over the type of unwholesome politics played in the state and was therefore wondering that it was going to endanger him or dent his hard earned reputation,” he said.
The governor said his wife, who is a medical doctor and works in a hospital in London, would rather have him serving one term and forget going for another, since he was too sincere and humane to dabble into dirty politics.
