In Breaking News, Reports

By Archibong Jeremiah

The Cross River State Governor, Sen. Bassey Edet Otu has revealed plans to relocate the Lemna dumpsite. 

He visited the site and other places two weeks and some days after The ICIR-funded investigation that revealed large-scale procurement violations in contracts awarded in 2020 was published.

The investigation showed that the contract to manage the dump site and eleven other projects valued at over N600 million was awarded to nine companies that are not registered or recognized under the Cross River State Procurement Law, 2020 (Law No. 9). The full report can be read here.

Speaking to journalists at the site, the governor said “What I’m seeing here is quite pathetic, apart from the fact that we are putting proper arrangements to move this dump site from here, we are looking for where to take it, this one must be put in proper condition.

“Why I came here today is to assess the situation firsthand and make sure from tomorrow things are done to make this dumpsite workable, and that trucks that are coming in are able to move in very easily to deliver their dump.”

Sen. Otu promised that “Calabar is going to be clean again, very very soon.”
