The Special Adviser to the Governor on Events management and governor’s office, Kenneth Aklah disclosed this during a media briefing Friday, in Calabar where he disclosed it was part of the exciting innovations that were being introduced into the 32 day Calabar Festival which began on December 1, 2016 with the charity walk to mark the World Aids Day.

Aklah said the partnership which is being led by the Carnival Calabar Commission and the ICT ministry will also feature some sort of exhibition where classic photographs will be sold by the participants.

Also, the chairman of the Carnival Calabar Commission, Gabe Onah said that the Government is using the platform to ensure Cross Riverians take advantage of the job opportunities in the creative industry.
