Cross River State Commissioner for Education, Mr. Goddy Ettah says the recent partnership entered into by the state with the Canadian government is aimed at raising the standard of education in the state.

Speaking on what would be the benefit of the partnership, Etta, who accompanied Governor Ben Ayade to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony in Ottawa, Canada, said the governor intends to raise the standard of education in the state to a level that it would attract students from across the country.

“The essence of the trip is to partner the Canadian Bureau for International Education to establish a Canadian International School, comprising primary, secondary and tertiary institution in the state.”

Specifically, Etta said: ‘’Our intention is to bring the highest standard of education that Canada is known for to Cross River State such that the state will become a hub for standardized educational training. The governor’s presence attracted all the stakeholders in education in Canada who rallied round him by demonstrating their willingness to partner the state in actualizing the dream of setting up a world class institution in Cross River”.

According to him, the state decided to partner Canada because the country is rated the best in terms of education in the world and the governor is in a hurry to replicate such a high standard of education in the state for the benefit of its citizenry and the country at large.

“This MoU is to enable the take off of a Canadian International school to provide learning facilities for primary, secondary and a tertiary institutions in Calabar. By July 16, 2016, the technical team including architects from Canada will be in the state to give muscle to the MoU that has been signed as they will commence the need assessment process for a suitable site for the school.”

The Commissioner who called on well-meaning Cross Riverians to rally round Governor Ayade because he has good intentions for the state added that “the trip was a step in the right direction and I am convinced that this will boost the economy of the state in addition to changing the educational status of the state and country at large. When established, it is expected that it will attract people from all across the country and even beyond because it is going to be first class.”
