Since 2015 till date Cross River State have experienced a high rate of damaged roads with Calabar the state capital as the worst hit. There's hardly any street without a minimum of 5 to 10 major potholes. 


It is on record that Calabar used to be one of the cleanest cities in Nigeria with good roads for both motorists and pedetrands but today the state capital is now a shadow of itself. 


Since the Ayade led administration took over the governance of Cross River State, residents and indigenes have taken to social media to complain about this colossal neglect of roads with motorist being the worst hit as they are forced to visit their mechanics every now and then.

The most painful in all these complains is that the government of Cross River State have paid deaf ears to the cry of the people while government agencies capitalize on those bad spots to harassed citizens for both legal and illegal government levies in form of tickets and other taxes. The least Ayade could do was to carry out scanty palliative care on these roads which barley last up to 12 months before they become worst than their first state.

In the midst of all these, individuals and groups have from time to time made moves to help themselves since government seems to have lost interest in fixing road owing to the administration's industrialisation drive which many are yet to understand. In fact it's in the news that the Governor once said he is not the type of governor who is interested in fixing potholes. 


For those who know Calabar pretty well, you will agree that Big Quo town is in the heart of Calabar, it's an ancient town with great historical value to Calabar. The major entrance into this ancient town had been an eyesore yet very close to government house. 


In a bid to take personal responsibility of their town, a group of young persons under the auspices of Quo Youth Assembly yesterday, 1st October decided to celebrate the nation's independence with a Corporate Social Responsibility on the road. 


Speaking with our reporter, Mr. Eta Imona President of Quo Youth Assembly, Said they could no longer wait for Ayade to fix the road thus they decided to take the responsibility and ensure their community is in fine shape. He mentioned that the motive behind their palliative work on the road is the need to have accessible and motorable roads in their community. 


The youths which were sighted in the early hours of 1st October, Nigeria's Independence day along Big Quo town road by Oando filling Station, were in their numbers, each working cheerfully, supporting themselves to make their road motorable.


"Number one big Quo road is the main entrance into big Quo town, although we have other entrances, the entrance was so bad that people coming into Big Quo prefer to use the highway, so as youths in the town, we can't wait for facilities in our community to get so dilapidated while we watch. We decided to be responsible and fix it." The youth leader informed. 


Mr. Imona added that they had earlier last week worked on the culvert around kings Street and they also have another project they hope to complete before the end of October 2020.


"We still have one more project we want to embark upon, by the grace of God if we have money we will fix it before this month comes to an end. Nyuk Esu that leads to Ibom layout."

 


"That's actually our second project, the first was the culvert in heart of the town along kings street that leads to the highway. The culvert was so bad, we had to pull them out and made another cast to replace the damaged ones. 


For the motive behind their palliative work, Imona has this to say; "You won't sit down and watch your house deteriorate to a level that you can't stay inside it again." He mentioned that money for the projects was sourced from concern members of the community.
