The Calabar South Local Government has donated an office space to the Earth Environment and Climate Care Ambassador (EECCA) in its bid to contribute in combating climate change.

The EECCA was established in 2016 and is committed to the ideas of collective efforts to promoting environmental friendliness, climate safety, social justice, human dignity and respect for people’s rights to enable a society devoid of security threats and health hazards.

The donation is part of the partnership agreement between both parties which according to the council chairperson, Esther Edet Bassey was to ensure everyone plays their role in mitigating the effect of climate change.

“We are happy to have them here because we know that a lot of solutions are going to be proffered in Calabar South Local Government Area, especially by planting of trees,” Mrs. Bassey, represented at the donation event last week by her deputy, Robert Hogan, told CrossRiverWatch.

“We are sure that EECCA is going to reduce some of these problems we are having in climate change,” she added.

Mr. Hogan, while announcing the donation, said the council was happy to work with EECCA and expressed optimism that the organization will assist in the decrease of concerns associated with green house gas emissions.

The EECCA proceeded to adorn three people as climate ambassadors with a charge to ensure that they combat global warming among other climatic challenges.

The Commissioner for Environment, Mfon Bassey; Mr. Hogan and the council’s supervisor of finance are the climate ambassadors.

Decorating the ambassadors, the zonal director and coordinator, south-south zone of the EECCA, Engr. Emmanuel Etim averred that, “EECCA is here to heal the earth because it has been damaged, hence, the cause of the green gas emission.”

He added that, “We can control the damage by creating awareness, organizing campaigns, and encouraging afforestation”.

For Mrs. Glory Eyo who coordinates the activities of EECCA in the council area, the office donation saved it a lot of headache as the United Nations had given them a February 28th, 2022 deadline.

“When the United Nations, who are in town now, gave us a deadline of February 28. They did this with the understanding that we were not serious, but now that we have an office space, I am very happy. I am proud to be able to go as I go now to call them to visit our office space,” she said.
