A picture being circulated on social media shows Frank Ayade, brother of the governor of Cross River state, posing with bowls of chicken.
Some social media users who shared the picture, described Frank as “assistant governor” and “co-governor”.
In a Facebook post, one Faruk Adejoh-Audu said: “Frank Ayade, the very powerful younger brother of Gov Ben Ayade known as the “Assistant Governor” in Cross River State is having his lunch!”
Agba Jalingo, a journalist detained in 2019 for allegedly criticising the Ayade, also taunted the governor’s younger brother.
“The co-governor of Cross River state, Frank Ayade is flexing. Let’s clap for him,” Jalingo wrote.
Silas Rimdans, another Facebook user, said: “This lunch is for how many days sir?”
While Ukpong Immaculata, also a Facebook user, said: “Dr Frank,life is meant to be enjoyed,no body will feed your grave,i for make arrangements for up palm wine and bush meat too.Chop,nice up and sleep cool. Remain bless”
It’s unclear where the picture was taken but some of those who commented said it was during the birthday of Frank’s wife on August 18.
