The Calabar-Calabar monument was done in 2007 when the Calabar Carnival had started building momentum during the administration of Donald Duke.

The Gov. Ben Ayade administration saw the need to add some fushion into the monuments with a view to keep them preserved for the future.

The ministry is indeed living upto its expectations in general cleanliness of Calabar metropolis which include the timely cutting of grass, waste evacuation, cutting down of dead trees, street sweeping, desilting of gutters among many others.

Keep up the good work Mr Mfon Bassey
