A representative of the Cross River Government who announced the State Government’s pledge of $3m for water sanitation at the Global Citizen Festival, disclosed that they will be committing the said amount ‘every year for the next 5 years’. She also called on other states in Nigeria to join in the fight for global health.

However few months ago, Vanguard reported that workers of the Cross River Geographic Information Agency, CRGIA, and Cross River State Water Board Limited, CRWBL, Calabar, who were thrown out of their homes by their landlords for inability to pay house rent currently sleep in uncompleted buildings and churches.

Some of the affected workers owed a backlog of 15-18 months salaries by the state government were also dragged to court by the landlords. The angry workers of the two agencies who barricaded the Governor’s Office, Calabar, said they were exhausted. They noted that different government officials had promised them that something would be done when the arrears were about six months, only to surprisingly renege and now, it has soared to 15 months for CRGIA and 18 months for CRWBL workers.
