Cross River’s Environment Commissioner, Engineer Mike Eraye says he has received several abusive calls from the citizenry as well as those praising his efforts to ensure the state remains clean and green.

In a telephone chat with CrossRiverWatch, Eraye who has been out of the public eye since his appointment, says that it is due to his job description as he is always trying to ensure the state remains clean and green as well as aid the governor, Benedict Ayade to deliver on his mandate.

He says the job has its ups and downs and refused to boast of any achievement saying “I will leave the judgement of my performance to my employer and Cross Riverians.

“I have received calls from people, I take all my calls because you do not know who might be calling and people have called in, some abusing me others praising me but I don’t let that deter me from carrying out responsibilities”.

He said efforts have been put in place to ensure prompt evacuation of refuse which he said is quite a difficult job owing to the mind set and perception of people, adding that plans are in place to sensitize the public on proper waste management.

“There are plans in place to sensitize the people on proper waste management because the current mind set makes the job difficult. You evacuate one refuse heap today, tomorrow you will find out that two more have sprung up”.

He also disclosed plans were in place to use waste as a source of energy for power generation which fits into the governor’s vision to ensure adequate power supply to aid in his industrialization drive.

The Obudu born politician also stressed that his Ministry was not only about waste evacuation as that formed less than 10 percent of the job description.
