The Deputy Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ivara Esu, as part of State Government’s plan to ensure provision of basic social amenities for her citizenry, yesterday commissioned completed borehole water facilities to Cabalar Municipality and South Local Government Areas.
Led by Heads of Local Government Administration for both LGA, Prof. Esu commended the efforts of HOLGA towards ensuring the completion of the projects and for effectively supervising the quality of materials used.
While Commissioning, he retorted that the facilities will help the citizens around the environs and it will also help to maintain a clean environment around the market.
“This project today as we all know is a quick run project, these are some of the little basic amenities that citizens need and can have access to as well. They don’t require much money to get them done as we can all see.
“I commend HOLGA for delivering these projects as timely as requested by His Excellency, Senator Ben Ayade.” Esu said.
Projects inspected as led by HOLGA Calabar Municipality, Mr. Ngaji Anthony are the raised back fence of the Municipal Council, which according to the HOLGA “was prone to breaking, entering and carting away of Council’s properties, especially those in the Youth Resource Centre.”
Other projects in the LGA are, completed water facilities at Marian Market, completed Akiba Road project.
Likewise, HOLGA Calabar South, Mrs. Christiana Elemi Nelson led the inspection team to Commission Water projects at Okon Edet and Academy street.
The Deputy Governor was accompanied on the appraisal tour by Commissioner Local Government Affairs, Mr. John Ulafor and Auditor-General for Local Government, Mrs. Franca Inok.
