Cross River governor, Ben Ayade says Nigerians and Equatorial Guineans are of a kin and has called for further strengthening of the relationship both have enjoyed over the years.

The governor stated this today, when he received Equatorial Guinea’s Consular General for Eastern Nigeria, Ambassador Juan Manana Mbomio who presented his letter of credence to Ayade and announced the departure of two diplomats in the consulate, as they have been recalled back home.

Ayade who said Cross Riverians and in extension, Nigerians have enjoyed a warm relationship with Equatorial Guinea joked that in the case of an eventual mix up, anyone who met the meeting will not be able to differentiate between the two.

He said the state will continue to explore areas of partnership especially in health and education, expressing optimism that the outgoing diplomats will return to Equatorial Guinea with a good story to tell about Cross River’s “dishes, hospitality, warmth, fellowship, kindness, fear of God, culture and heritage.”

Ambassador Manana on his part said his visit was pertinent as he has been accredited in this part of the country with 9 states under his watch.

Manana pointed out that both countries have enjoyed a good relationship with Nigeria supporting Equatorial Guinea in the areas of health and education by sending a team of medical doctors to tutor and treat.

He notified the governor of the departure of two diplomats, the vice consular general, Martina Ondo Nsang and consular attache, Lorenzo Esono Oyana, both of whom have been in the country for 6 years.

Manana also presented to governor Ayade, his letter of credence, his country’s coat of arms and national flag with Ayade returning the gesture with a gift he said symbolizes their African brotherhood.
