The Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. Eteng Jonah Williams has said that the 9th Assembly under his leadership will work for the people of Cross River State.
He made the statement while speaking to journalists during site inspection of West African Advanced Teachers Continuous Training College in Biase where he was pleased with the level of the project.
Speaking on the aim of the project, Eteng said, “We need to train teachers. It is the wisdom of the Government to come up with this, to train the teachers in order to impact our students.
“We will not end here, we are ready to work for Cross Riverians. Our method is different, we will be doing more of oversight.”
Also lending his voice, the member representing Biase constituency, Hon. Ogbor Ogbor expressed his satisfaction with the project stating that “Biase is a strategic place. Retraining the already trained teachers is what we need. It will attract human and economic traffic.”
The West African Teachers Continuous Training College project is funded from the 2018 budget and is expected to be delivered by September 2019.
