The Cross River State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade has promised to make the State more investors friendly.
Ayade made the pronouncement recently at PZ Willmar scholarship award presentation to students of tertiary institution in their host communities.
Governor Ben represented by the State Commissioner of Education, Mr. Godwin Etta charged them to sustain the gesture as it is part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and see it as a panacea to community motivation.
He challenged the awardees to be good ambassadors in their different institutions of learning.
While responding to goodwill messages and the charge from the Governor, the General Manager PZ Wilmar Limited, Mr. Ahmad Mustafa Goh said the company was not only for investments but also to deliver on its corporate social responsibilities.

And they are to be sponsored for their entire academic period.
