The erstwhile governor of Cross River State and Founder of The Bridge Leadership Foundation (TBLF) Senator Liyel Imoke has express displeasure that the State is being regarded as a civil servants State.

Senator Imoke barred his mind while speaking at the grand finale of the Graduate Employability Training (GET) program at Jorany Hotels Calabar organized by his foundation.

According to the Founder, “we have been termed civil servants State and I hate that term. We all get caught up and life just passes and life happens.”

Speaking on the nature of GET program, the former Governor said he is always fulfilled when opportune to be part of the Graduate Employability Training.

He maintained that “We are disadvantaged in this part of the country. Now you have been opportune to learn the strategies to be competitive in a world that is competitive.”

Further in his admonition Imoke asserted that: “For the foundation, this is the 6th GET program and this one is very unique because it is exclusively for women, the world has changed, women are part of the workforce, women are in business.

“A typical man relaxes after work but a typical woman gets back home after work and still continues another work. Infinitely, a successful woman is better than a successful man.” He ended.

On his part, in support of women’s involvement in global workforce the Speaker, Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. John Gaul lauded the efforts of the organizers. He joined others to call for greater women inclusion in every facet of life.

He further seized the opportunity to disclose that the House is open to programs geared towards women inclusion in all facets of life as well as in other areas they are open to.

The Speaker concluded by assuring the participants and Cross Riverians that the Assembly will leave up to expectation of the people of Cross River state.

Speaking on behalf of participants Grace Afo and Stella Inyang after expressing their gratitude said the training has exposed them to more aspects of positive thinking to develop their self-confidence as well as new measures to grow a business.
