The Executive Chairman, Cross River State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr Stephen Odey has received accolades from Chiefs, Elders, Teachers, Pupils and Community dwellers in Ugep, Abi and Ikom Local Government Areas (LGAs), for providing a conducive environment for teaching and learning through the provision of functional Classrooms, Sitting facilities, amongst others.

Speaking during the commissioning of a seven classroom block, office and lavatory in St Pearse’s Primary School Ugep, the Obol Lopon of Ugep, who was represented by Chief Francis Lekam, President of Ugep Development Council, said the rehabilitation of the classroom block has not only improved the learning condition of pupils, but has also bridged the gap between public and private schools.

According to him “in the past when you come here, you would not want even your child to come in here. You will agree with me that the dichotomy we normally hear about between the public school and the private is nearly absent in this school. This is the second time I am experiencing the pupils actually speaking English the way it should be spoken, that gives credit to the people managing the public education system in Cross River State,” he said.

While thanking the Board Chairman for intervening in the needs of the school, the Head teacher St Pearse’s Primary School, Mrs Virginia Okoi, said “I want to say thank you to the Board Chairman, who came on his familiarization tour when we were using only two classrooms out of the seven classroom block due to its bad condition and he made a promise to change the situation.  It was not even up to two months after his promise, he sent in contractors who came in to rehabilitate the building, and today the building is what you are seeing here. We are very grateful for the good work that he has done,” she stated.

The story was no different in Abi LGA, where the commissioning of a six Classroom Block and Water Project took place in PCN Primary School, Ebor.

The Clan Head of the host community, Ebor, HRH Eval Emeng Ideba extended gratitude to Government for the show of love to the Ebor Community.

In an address which was presented by a primary six pupil of PCN Primary School, Ebor, on behalf of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA), Miss Goodness Isong stated that the school was in a deplorable state, until his assumption into office,

Meanwhile at the commissioning of the four classroom block at St Martin’s Primary School, Ikom LGA, the Executive Secretary Ikom Local Government Education Authority(LGEA), Mr  Agbor Ntang and the Head teacher of the school, Mrs Roseline Ekuri lauded the efforts of the board and that of government. They assured that the facilities on ground will protected and properly utilised.

Responding, the Chairman SUBEB, Dr Stephen Odey, reiterated that all of these laudable achievements would not have been possible without the support of Governor Ben Ayade whose passion for the Basic Education sub-sector is unpararelled.

Dr Odey who was represented by the Director of Planning, Research and Statistics (PRS), Mr Nkanu Egbula urged members of the various communities to continue to support Governor Ben Ayade’s led administration, as well as support efforts of the government by protecting all facilities provided.
