Cross River state governor, Senator Ben Ayade departed Calabar today for Abuja aboard Airpeace.
This is the second journey the governor is making out of the state since his swearing in May 29. The first was to Oslo in Norway, two days after his swearing in.
It was not clear what the Governor had travelled to Abuja for or how long he will be staying in Abuja at press time, as there was no official statement from government house.
Some travellers who boarded the plane with the governor from Calabar to Abuja also had some complaints on arrival at the FCT about the treatment the governor meted out to them and some nursing mothers and the elderly at the airport.
Before his departure, our state house correspondent, Efa Sunday reports that the governor was at the Rice City and the noodles factory, where he had discussions with the member representing Ogoja/Yala federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Jarigbe Agom, over the efforts to get presidential assent to the Federal University of Technology Ogoja bill, which the lawmaker sponsored.
