Ikot Ayan Itam

An environmental sustainability project by Ubong Nda describes  Ikot Ayan Itam in the summary of his Community research as:-

A village of around 13,000 people located on land with “problematic topography”. It notes with an ethical exactitude that “ taboos are taken seriously….. as when wrongly handled….could create mistrust, alienation and even outright ejection…..from the community”.

Excerpt from the book “Critical Perspectives on Applied Theatre” by Jenny Hughes. Page 27, 2016

Abandoned Machines

WHY?

There are a multitude of reasons to why a project becomes abandoned such as;

• Inexperienced developers;

• Poor marketing and sales strategies;

• Financial problems;

• Challenging economic conditions;

• Disputes between shareholders;

• Mismanagement of the company and business affairs; and

• Lack of enforcement and monitoring by the authorities.

It is not uncommon to hear real stories of abandoned projects and our people are being caught in this unfortunate situation.

It is interesting to note that Ikot Ayan Itam has the highest number of abandoned projects in the local government.

Our Worries

natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth; examples are floods, landslides, drought, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, and other geologic processes.

These calamities have led to the displacement of a lot of people and heavy loss of life as well as the property.

Currently, the only source of water for the village is a spring situated down a sharp incline approximately 3/4 of a mile from the village. This means the villagers have to carry their water up that sharp incline back to the village, which is back-breaking work.

Another problem is that the villagers use this spring for washing clothes and even the odd motorbike, so the water gets polluted.
