Ebo Woleche (YALA): Don’t Abandon Our Community, Cross River Government Told. Ebo Woleche: The Abandoned Community In Cross River State. It was not till I visited dwelling just lately and determined to take a stroll to Woleche-Ebo, Ebo Woleche is as previous as Cross River State however stay disconnected in all sphere of Government current, I by no means imagined or believed {that a} Community often known as Ebo Woleche has no hint of presidency current, else I neglect the city name Ebo-Ipuole has solely a group mortuary.

Ebo Woleche: The abandoned Community in Cross River State

Many of my family and friends members lives in Ebo Woleche however I by no means knew the precise state of the Community till just lately.


Three weeks in the past I visited the group and for the primary time within the final ten years I need to pour my coronary heart and thoughts to involved Cross Riverians.

I need to painfully and tearfully inform us that the Community lacked Government (Federal, State and Local Government) presence. They don’t have any electrical energy, no water, no tarred highway, no School, no Health Center, no police station, and no community, simply nothing.

I’m from Ebo Ipuole , a Community in Yala native authorities Area of Cross River State. Honestly, I used to be shocked after I found all these. To consider this story, I’ll urge related businesses to visit Ebo Woleche to see with their very own eyes, the situation and nature of the Community.

The highway resulting in the Community from Ebo Ipuole was additionally a hell. The first shocker was the untarred roads in the neighborhood. Ebo woleche Community is as large as some council headquarters in Cross River State but no single highway is tarred. I drove around the Community and I couldn’t see a single presence of presidency (Federal, State, or Local Government).

I didn’t see pipe-borne water anyplace. I didn’t see Health Care Centre anyplace. I didn’t see Police Post. I didn’t see any Secondary School. No Market. No Electricity. No Petrol Station. No Hotel. The solely Primary School in Woleche Community is totally dilapidated. The Pupils sit on the ground. No Chairs, no Table.

There is not any single authorities constructing in Woleche Community besides the previous dilapidated major school. The Community has very massive expanse of land and its persons are predominantly farmers. Honestly, there may be nothing to point out that this group is a part of Yala LGA. There is nothing to point out that this group is in Cross river State.

I used to be not solely shocked at what I noticed with my eyes, I used to be certainly devastated on the stage of non-development  in the neighborhood. I puzzled why no one from the Community drew the eye of presidency to the non-development within the Ebo Woleche Community, the identical factor is the image of Ebo Ipuole the place I hail from however that shall be a narrative for an additional day since a lot of our little kids have been in authorities for years with none contribution to Wogada Land.

Donald Duke was Governor from 1999 to 2007. Liyel Imoke was Governor from 2007 to 2015, and BEN AYADE took over in 2015 and he’s nonetheless on seat. Yet, no one cared and cares to deliver improvement to Ebo Community in Yala native LGA.

It pains me, it worries me and it disturbs me that Ebo Community has been deserted and maybe forgotten. I’ve additionally puzzled the sort and high quality of House of Assembly Representatives which that part of the state or have been having since 1999, to the extent that each Ebo Ipuole and Ebo Woleche Communities have been completely uncared for.

It is equally shameful and certainly absurd that Ebo is part of Yala LGA, but people who find themselves representing her for years and are even holding the positions of Directors of businesses and Special advisers on key areas have deliberately forgotten in regards to the Community, and refused to draw a single Government Project to it.

In a bid to get to the foundation of the non-development in Ebo woleche I met with some group stakeholders. I used to be very fortunate to fulfill the standard ruler in his palace (additionally in shambles). The Royal Father acquired me properly, as if he was ready for me. He thereafter narrated to me the historical past of Ebo woleche Community.

His Royal Highness knowledgeable me that his Community had achieved the whole lot humanly doable to draw improvement (facilities), however to no avail. The Traditional Ruler thereafter pleaded with me to make use of my contacts and affect to attract authorities’s consideration to their plight within the Community, since these representing them on the varied organs of presidency (House of Assembly, House of Representative, Senate and Political Appointees) have failed them woefully.

I used to be additionally taken to the Office of the Community Governing Council (CGC) however the place was below lock and key. I visited the one school within the Community; a major school that’s fully and completely dilapidated. I used to be shocked. But one factor I’m but to grasp is that, whereas there are numerous Churches in Woleche Community, there isn’t a authorities presence. That is, if the Church may discover Woleche Community enticing to point out their presence, how come our authorities (Federal, State, LGA) has refused to point out presence on this identical Community?

I returned again to Lagos my base very late within the night on that very same 27th of October 2017. I didn’t go to mattress instantly. No. I rapidly activated my contacts within the State Government, and poured my coronary heart out, on the necessity to rush to Woleche Community and see clearly the non-developed situation of the place. For apparent causes, I can’t use this platform to go intimately on what I mentioned with the powers that be within the State authorities.

Let me finish this discourse by declaring that the best option to deliver improvement to our Communities is thru politics.

Religious actions, farming, commerce (commerce) and funding brings improvement as properly, however politics is the best and quickest option to deliver improvement to our varied communities. Those representing our
constituencies in varied organs of presidency needs to be alive to their accountability by guaranteeing that they entice tasks of assorted varieties to their communities.

Ebo Yala LGA CRS Ebo (Yala) People: 5 notable truths about this Community

To the individuals of Woleche Community, I attraction to them to stop crying. They ought to clear their eyes and stop shedding tears of presidency’s neglect. Almighty God has taken over their matter and in no distant time, outcomes will begin to manifest positively, in Jesus Mighty Name I Pray, AMEN.

I relaxation my pen.
