One of the Special Assistants of Cross River Governor, Freeman Godwin, has threatened to commit suicide over unpaid salaries.
He claimed he has not been a dime since his appointment last year.
Godwin alleged he got a loan to process documentation of his appointment but lamented he has been unable to service it because of non-payment of his salaries.
In a video obtained by The Nation, he said: “I am ready to die in this office. I have chosen by myself to take my life.
I lost everything. I was there living my life and they called me to take an appointment. They asked me to borrow money to do clearance.
“At the end of the day, they selected some people and pay N100, 000. Telling me Ben Ayade said, Ben Ayade said. So I should go and get a letter from Ben Ayade.
“Please don’t touch me. I will die for them.
…I sold everything to pay that young man.
I borrowed money, came here, and did documentation hoping that when I am paid, I will pay back the loan.
“See, my wife gave birth through CS. A baby girl, I just said let me see what I can do but nothing…”
