Five years after collecting tax as a Governor, I still failed the poor – Ben Ayade breaks down in a hot tears on national TV



Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade in a recently surfaced video online was seen crying when he mentioned the state of poverty in the state he has governed for five years now.

The governor said he was not happy that the government, which did not meet the needs of the people in many areas still collects tax from them.

He said, “I never knew that five years as governor, there would still be people living in thatched houses in Cross River. I almost cried because I knew how prepared I was but it didn’t end the way I dreamt for the state. I wish God would intervene because I really wish I could help. It’s very painful.”
