It was thrills and frills as Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State on Thursday led 250 power bikers, including former Governor Donald Duke in an acrobatic display of state of the art exotic power bikes.
The bikers’ segment of the carnival, which kicked off at about 2pm, witnessed throngs of spectators who laid siege on the 12-kilometer carnival route to witness the acrobatic and colourful of display.
Leading the charge, which took off to an ecstatic start, the revellers screamed and cheered as Governor Ayade and his band of riders took to the road from the Millennium Park.
The Bikers’ Carnival, which before today went through a series of rigorous dry runs, lived up to its billing as they pulled tons of stunts in front of the ever cheering crowd.
Chants of “Nothing do you”, “Ayade carry go” “No vacancy at Diamond Hill”, “Kinetically crystallised for 2019”, as the governor rode past in his scorpion-like exotic bike, while thumbing up to the mammoth crowd.
