The World Bank commended the Fadama User Group (FUG) in Cross River State for engaging in the production of cassava chips.

Country Director of the Bank, Marie Francoise Marie-Nelly, gave the commendation during the inspection of the World Bank-assisted project in Ikot Ishie, Calabar recently.

She explained the essence of the investment was to reduce the unit price of production for the purpose of viability and competition.

She urged the Project Coordinator, Bassey Elemi, to scale-up production to meet market needs.

Marie-Nelly disclosed that the main focus of the project at the moment was the production of cassava located in the central senatorial district of the state at Yakurr Local Government Area.

Meanwhile the Chairman of Fadama Procurement Committee in the State, Gilbert Otu Bassey, spoke about an abattoir project the World Bank also supported.

He added that the project has enough water that guaranteed good sanitary conditions for dressing of all their produce.
