The governor’s security details setting up a podium and carrying out security sweeping before the press briefing

Cross River governor, Ben Ayade is currently meeting with heads of security agencies in the state with ending the rising level of insecurity suspected to be the agenda.

This is even as the lawns before the deputy governor’s lodge along Leopard town road are currently being mowed and cleaned to accommodate journalists and the heads of the security agencies for a press briefing after the meeting.

He is expected to brief the media alongside a few commissioners and the security chiefs.

It is unclear what the governor intends briefing the media on, but sources in government house Calabar say the outcome of the visit of the French Consular General, Thursday which saw the governor announce plans to set up a department of homeland security, as well as the rising spate of dare devil armed robberies, kidnappings amongst others will form part of the discuss.

Also, suspected to be on the cards is the recent approval from the federal government for the state to go ahead with the processes to get the Bakassi deep sea port on track.

As at press time, Ayade was still locked in a meeting with the security chiefs while journalists numbering over fifty had waited over two hours at first, the presidential lodge, then the governor’s lodge and the field adjoining the deputy governor’s lodge for him.

However, arrangements are being made for his arrival with his advance team already setting up a podium and carrying out security sweeping.
