Some communities in Cross River North and Central Senatorial districts numbering over 50, have benefited from water, sanitation and improved healthcare facilities provided by the State Government.
Ayade who was represented by the Commissioner for International Development Cooperation, Inyang Asibong, said the programme was aimed at improving the standard of health and hygiene in the state.
The governor explained that improving access to quality water, healthcare delivery and general well-being of the people in the rural Communities remain the primary objective of his administration. The effort he said was also to create a conducive environment in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 2030.
The initiative is part of the State Government Community Connect and Development Programme. The State Community and Social Development Agency is a World Bank Assisted Partnership Programme with the Cross River State Government which Governor Ayade said his administration will always prioritize by regularly paying its counterpart funding obligations.
In response, the General Manager of Cross River Community and Social Development Agency, Fidel Undie said the projects will certainly draw the benefits of good governance closer to the people.
