Traders and buyers at popular Watt market Calabar have lamented the poor health standards of the market which is the largest in Cross River State.

The traders who said the repugnant smell oozing out from the refuse is something else.

A trader, Edet, said “In a thing like this, I know it is not good in a market square where people are doing business and things like this is not supposed to be kept here and not supposed to be found. Those workers have to evacuate the refuse on time so that it will not affect people’s health; it is not good for the health normally according to biology. When you breath these things into your body it will affect you. It is not good”.

The trader call on the State Government and relevant agencies to ensure that refuse is cleared as at when due.

“They should encourage those workers that are removing these things. They should be taking it away on time, not allowing people to come out like this.

“People are doing business here and even passersby are breathing this; it is not good to their health. That is why they should be encouraging them to always evaluate it early”. Another told CrossRiverWatch.

Another who sounded ironical and refused to mention name said “My name na dustbin, I like this thing as e dey so, wen you come Calabar and see this thing you go know say Calabar is fine. We like it as e dey so, they need to bring another dustbin come keep for road here”. The trader ended.

Meanwhile, others approached refused to speak positing that “nothing will be done”.

At the time of filing this report, the refuse is still at the middle of the busy market road (Goldie by Etim Edem park).
