The students union government of the Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH), and Federal College of Education (FCE) Obudu have urged the governor-elect,Senator Benedict Ayade to make education a top priority of his administration.

In separate statements signed by the Presidents and Secretaries of both unions and made available to CrossRiverWatch, they congratulated the governor elect stressing the need for an all inclusive government as the state braces for new challenges in opposition to the central government for the first time in the fourth republic.

The Students Union Government of CRUTECH in its message signed by the President, Omang Idiege and Secretary Ovat Ovat, urged the incoming administration to “look deep into the crisis rocking the finances of CRUTECH which has caused strikes amounting to over 13 months in total in the past five years and create a sustainable financial regime through deliberate policies that will efficiently position the institution to deliver on its mandate which is captured in the vision and mission statements as the current state of the institution suggests neglect for reasons best known to a few”.

While the statement by the students union government of FCE Obudu, signed by the President Adie Samson and Secretary, Idiege Martins read in part: “as the state prepares for life under your administration, make education your topmost priority as all policies of your administration can only be sustained if there are capable hands to continue steering the affairs after your tenure eventually elapses”

The ongoing industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU in CRUTECH which is in its fourth month has crippled not just academic activities but a host of businesses in and around the institution’s premises.
