World Bank’s N3b Erosion Project Splits Cross River Community
Members of Ikot Nkebre Community in Calabar Municipal Council of Cross River State have disagreed over the N3b World Bank project, as over 45 houses are being threatened by the project design.
This is coming even as the Cross River State Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) has intervened in the matter.
A section of the community residing in the lower part of Ikot Nkebre, had last week, raised an alarm about the quality of work and their inability to access the project design.
But Village Head of Ikot Nkebre, Chief Tony Nkebre, Chairman of Nkebre Community Development Association (NCDA), Etubom Eyo Edet Eyo and Secretary, Elder Emmanuel Ewa disagreed with the position of the Nkebre people in the lower part, saying their report in the media was misleading.
