Mr. Chuktu Nanpet, a Program Manager of United Purpose, a Non-Governmental Organization working with the Cross River State Government, Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (CRS-RUWASSA) on improving the sanitation status of the State by ending open defecation has described as “shameful” the inability of the State Government to provide its counterpart fund for the project.

Mr. Nanpet spoke on Sunday as a guest on “The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo” on HIT 95.9FM Calabar.

He disclosed that the State Government in 2014 signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the donor, Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council, which according to him should be honored because the project is people oriented.

Concluding, Mr. Chuktu said the benefits of being declared open defecation free is enormous and that Cross River State has 3 of the 5 Open Defecation Free (ODF) Local Governments in Nigeria.
