Following the lackluster performance of the Community and Social Development Agency, the Cross River State Government has set up a panel to look into its affairs with a view to up scaling its performance so it can deliver on its mandate.

The Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Chief Peter Ojie, revealed this yesterday at a meeting with Chairmen of Local Government Councils when the General Manager of the Agency, Pastor Victor Ovat made a presentation on his Agency’s programs.

Chief Ojie said though the agency was making judicious use of funds at its disposal, there was need for it to do more so as to touch the lives of inhabitants of interior communities in the State for which it was set up.

He said the place of the agency was crucial to the development of the State as Councils alone cannot fulfill all their obligations, and would therefore need other vehicles to drive the development of their respective communities.

The Commissioner expressed the state Government’s satisfaction with the intervention projects of the agency and noted that such projects should be in accordance with the State and World Bank standards.
