BREAKING : No media organisation is barred from covering my activities -Ayade

Cross River State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade has denied report trending on social media that some media organisations have been barred from covering his activities.

Ayade in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita described the report as complete falsehood aimed at misinforming the public.

Cross River based online news site, CrossRieverwatch had reported that the Governor has barred it correspondent, those of FAD FM, Hit Fm and Sparking FM from covering the Governor's activities.

The Governor has however dismissed the report declaring that he remain a media friendly Governor.

"The attention of Cross River state government has been drawn to a publication circulating in the social media alleging a ban on some media organisations from covering activities of Governor Ben Ayade.

The publication is intended to misinform the public.

For the avoidance any doubt, no media organisation is barred from covering activities of the governor.

The internal memo from which the publication anchored the blatant lie was meant to manage movement of the Government House Press Crew in the face of temporary transportation challenges.

There is no where in the memo where any media house or journalist was pronounced banned.

Governor Ayade remains the most accessible and media- friendly governor.

In the last four years, he has at every juncture demonstrated this. He therefore,has no plans to jettison this aspect of his nature", the statement reads.
