Calabar, Cross River State capital city is beginning to experience about the second episode of an environmental catastrophe, what I chose to label —Ayade’s Pyramid of Rubbish!
This pyramid refers to pilling heaps of unattended to refuse that the government of Cross River has a knack for not giving attention especially the present state government.
Journalist Daniel Agbor who just resumed his social activism after a brief stint of break has began a campaign of highlighting designated spots of these rubbish heaps in the state capital. Incidentally, Agbor is embarking on this trail when acclaimed social change agent, Joseph Odok, is taking a respite from his criticism of the PDP led state government.
The photos of refuse published here were taken on 2 & 3 of May at Goldie Street by Etim Eden Park and Mbukpa Market by Adak Uko.
I am calling on relevant government agencies to level Ayade’s pyramid because the rainy season just began. The health implications of these heaps of rubbish will be unprecedented if not checked now.
A stich in time saves nine.
