The Cross River State Government has earmarked N288 million for the ‘Running of Government House’ in Calabar, excerpts of the 2019 appropriation bill tagged ‘Qabalistic Densification’ show.

The item falls under ‘Material and Supplies’ budget head of the Governor’s office. The supplies are appropriated N200 million totaling N488 million for the said budget head.

According to the budget, there are three Government Houses in the State. One in Calabar, Ikom and Ogoja.
