Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday visited Cross River State, where he held a town hall meeting with locals, and commissioned projects.
Mr. Osinbajo was received by Governor Ben Ayade.
The visit, according to the chairman of the governing board and management of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Victor Ndoma-Egba, was to reaffirm the commitment of the Federal Government towards the Niger Delta region.
At the Obong of Calabar’s palace, Gov Ayade expressed pleasure with how Mr. Osinbajo got down from his car to interact with the people of the state.
According to a post on the Twitter account of his spokesman, Laolu Akande, the acting president said “Calabar is a great historical city & is very imp to President Buhari & adds Nigeria is great because of our diversity”.
Photos posted by Mr. Akande shows Mr. Osinbajo greeting and shaking hands with visibly excited supporters who came out in large numbers to welcome him.
“Ayade notes how AgP shook hands with supporters: both PDP&APC who came out to meet him; was surprised when he asked we get off the car,” Mr Akande said in a tweet.
