The governor, who expressed disappointment at the level of evacuation by the firms in Calabar South and some parts of Calabar Municipality on Monday, said government will no longer tolerate the inadequacies of the contractors and is now fully ready to take over the evacuation exercise forthwith.
To this end, he directed the Secretary to the State Government to meet with the affected contractors to discharge government’s obligations to them.
The governor consequently announced that the Calabar Urban Development Authority (CUDA) would henceforth be responsible for the evacuation of refuse in the city.

“As you can see, some of the dump sites are close to markets and this is totally unacceptable. This is the easiest way through which we can have diseases transmitted to residents that we strive to protect always,”he stated.
