Cross River Government says it has received its own share of the palliatives distributed by the Federal Government to all the 36 states of the federation from the National Food Reserve.


Director-General of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), James Anam, listed the items received to include a total of 14,040 bags of 50kg of maize, 3,380 bags of 50kg of garri from the national food, while 14,000 bags of 25kg of rice from the federal ministry of agriculture.


Meanwhile, the Commissioner for Information, Erasmus Ekpang, has said that a committee that would ensure equitable distribution of the items to the intended recipients was already in place.

Ekpand said unlike before, the committee was an all-inclusive one involving security agencies and other groups, including people living with disabilities.
