The Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH) Alumni Association is set to embark on a 200 million Naira state-of-the-art alumni center to be situated at the Calabar campus of the institution.

The National President of the Association, Mr. Eyam Abeng, who briefed journalists in Calabar on the proposed project, said the project when completed, will provide ultra modern facilities that will enhance research and development.

He maintained that with the decline in crude oil price, there was the need to diversify the nation’s economy especially in the areas of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and agriculture.

Eyam, stated that to achieve the diversification campaign, it is necessary to set up and equip research and learning centers across the tertiary institutions in the country.

He explained that the best area for investment in this present-day financial crisis is through human capital development, urging investors to key into the alumni project.

On funding of the project, Eyam appealed to corporate organisations and individuals to support the project.

According to him, “with the present financial crisis we are experiencing all over the world, the way forward is to invest in human capital development especially in the areas of ICT and agriculture. We are in a global village and virtually everything is connected to ICT. So we need to explore this sector. We need to invest in research, our computer science students can be supported to start producing soft wares; all these can only be achieved if we have a workable platform for them to carry out research.

“In the area of Agriculture, we want to ensure that our Faculty of Agriculture go back to their laboratory and do research on new varieties of seedlings so that we can improve on our farms produce. We want to add value to Agriculture by making sure that our young graduates go back to their village farm lands and start farming. We want to also link them to markets all these are incorporated into this project.” he said.
