The arrival of the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan in Calabar today saw the obstruction of free flow of traffic for hours on the airport route along IBB road, up to Marian road, as security operatives barricaded streets and diverted vehicles to other routes.

The First Lady is visiting Calabar to attend the coronation of her father-in-inlaw as the Paramount Ruler of Abi Local Government Area. It will be recalled that President Jonathan’s daughter, got married to a Cross Riverian, Simeon Onyemeachi from Abi LGA early this year.

The ceremony which saw the coronation of two other Paramount Rulers, for Akpabuyo LGA and Calabar Municipality took place at Peregrino House amidst a strictly invited crowd.
