Ahead of the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet billed for next week, the former governoship aspirant and minister designate, Mr. Godwin Jeddy Agba, OFR has said his reception will hold in Calabar the state capital as against Abuja.
This was contained in a public memo made available to CrossRiverDaily where Mr. Jeddy explained that his decision was to ease Cross Riverians wishing to felicitate with him the stress of traveling to Abuja as he quoted security challenges in the State and the Nation at large as key reason.
The memo reads in whole:
“There will be an inauguration thanksgiving/reception ceremony in Cross River State after my swearing in. The reception will be open to all members of the APC.
“It is therefore not necessary for our members to proceed to Abuja given the security situation of our roads. More so, there is no ceremony planned for that day in Abuja.
“May I appeal that we all key into the upcoming event in Cross River State.
“I thank you for your understanding.
“Goddy Jedy-Agba, OFR, Dan Nupe”.
