Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 scrapped the weekly Executive Council meeting – where the governor and his deputy meet with commissioners special advisers and  permanent secretaries.

Governor Ayade made the disclosure in the course of a closed door meeting with permanent secretaries in the state public and civil service, stating that instead of a weekly meeting, there will now be a monthly interactive session in the executive Council  Chambers.

Governor Ayade also scrapped the anti-deforestation taskforce set up by his predecessor, Senator Liyel Imoke to checkmate the illegal logging of  large forest reserves  in the state for which the United Nations  has  granted 600 million dollars for the carbon credit accruing from the forest reserves.

He said: “Government has approved the disbandment of the state Task Force on Illegal Logging in the state while all offenders are to be fully prosecuted without delay.”
