One commentOn African Students Union Awards Cross River Health Commissioner

  • To most Cross Riverians and Nigerians, I believe, the award that really matters the most is that awarded by the people that are being served when government actions has brought positive changes to their lives and communities.

    Recently I called on the commissioner to (i) make available for free application forms for admission into the state schools of midwifery, (ii) reduction from N6,500 to N1,000 of processing fee, and (iii) creation of additional screening and interview center at the northern part of the state to which there was no response! This is not serving the people that you are appointed to do.

    The failure of the health ministry to take into consideration the onerous responsibilities they subjected the poor applicants to and their plight especially those from far away northern part of Cross River state is deplorable that should be condemned in the harshest terms.

    It is unfortunate that government activities such as citing of industries, screening of applicants for employment and admission into institutions of learning, and many others are being conducted in Calabar as if though Cross River State is made up of only Calabar!!!

    It is pathetic.
