Ayade Flags Off 2022 Calabar Carnival

Written by on October 17, 2022

Cross River State governor Ben Ayade  yesterday flagged off the first dry run for the 2022 Carnival Calabar, marking the return of the biggest African street party (Carnival Calabar) since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 which caused the state government to stop the carnival.

At the ceremony, the state chief executive  stated that the theme of the 2022  carnival “Agro Industrialisation”, was carefully chosen  to send a message to the global community that Africans can be self-reliant when it comes to feeding themselves.

Leadership reports that while lamenting the over dependence on other continents of the world for food,  the state governor stated that the continent of Africa didn’t need to depend on any western nation for survival particularly in the area of food to eat, given the  vast  arable land  and abundant human and material resources that the continent has been endowed with by God.
