As earlier reported by CrossRiverWatch the screening exercise for recruitment into the proposed garment industry was held at the U.J Esuene stadium in Calabar with turn out quite lower than the publicized figures.

Secretary to the state government, Tina Agbor while addressing the applicants before the commencement of the exercise said the exercise was in fulfillment of governor Ayade’s promise of creating jobs for women with widows at an advantage in the garment industry.

The Boki born legal practitioner who spoke in pidgin English added that the recruitment will see women enjoy over 80 percent of the total labor force required.

The applicants were then split into three groups with two people checking originals of their credentials in what was a surprise to some who thought it was going to be all practical.

Perpetua Ogri, says she was taken aback by the screening process “I thought it will be all practicals, I never really expected this (Certificate screening) but kudos however to the organizers as it is stress free which partly can be heaped on the fact that the turnout was quite lower than what I expected”.
