The BIRTHDAY of an experienced, highly multi skilled and consummate administrator is worthy of celebration.
My good people, let me blow your minds:The Cross River State Basic Education Subsector, has been transformed and repositioned by the Vision of His Excellency Professor Ben Ayade through the possibility of the birth of Dr. Barr. Steven Odey evidenced in the construction/rehabilitation of about 500 school projects across the state. Some of these projects include; storey buildings, classrooms, sick bays, perimeter fencings, bore holes, offices, lavatories, etc.
Construction of British-Canadian Int’l School at Obudu- Project is at 95% completion, first of its kind.
Commencement of academic activities at the three UNIVERSAL BASIC EDUCATION COMMISSION (UBEC) Junior Secondary Schools built at Akpabuyo, Abi and Yala LGAs in each of the three senatorial district of the state.
Supply of over 100, 000 plastic chairs and tables to schools to stop school children sitting on bare floor and further supply of teaching and learning materials.
Employment of about 2,500 teaching and Non -teaching staff into the primary and UBEC Model Junior Secondary Schools.
Conducted a painstaking personnel audit and biometric/image capturing exercise, the exercise led to the discovery of over 1,000 teachers with fake certificates and about 800 ghost workers, which is presently saving the state 100 million naira monthly and created a reliable database for Primary School Teachers.
