Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade is currently in a closed door meeting with his predecessor, Senator Liyel Imoke.

The meeting began at about 7:00PM with Government House sources suggesting it may not be unconnected to his ambition towards reelection in 2019.

Mr. Ayade left his office immediately after a State Executive Council meeting and proceeded to Mr. Imoke’s residence in Calabar with both proceeding to a private meeting room after Imoke welcomed him.

The duo had exchanged pleasantries at the Presbyterian Church at Eyamba street during a funeral ceremony of the late ASP Joseph Bassey; Senator Gershom Bassey’s uncle.

As at press time, the meeting was still ongoing.

Mr. Ayade has been meeting high profile personalities all week including former Attorney General of the Federation, Barrister Kanu Agabi who had visited Mr. Ayade in the office on Thursday.

Others include Senator Gershom Bassey and Mr. Chris Agara whom sources say is been tipped to replace Senator John Owan Enoh as the lawmaker representing central Cross River in the Senate in 2019.

CrossRiverWatch could not confirm the visit of former Governor Donald Duke but gathered that the meeting reported earlier in the week was between Mr. Ayade and the leaders of the five Carnival bands as well as the Governor’s band.

The planning for the 2017 Carnival was said to be key as sources say he may be looking forward to review the NGN50 million subvention given to bands annually.

However, this could not be confirmed as at press time.
