Youth development, education, healthcare, social inclusion and environmental issues should be priority in Cross River State with effect from 2023.
Senator representing Cross River South Senatorial district in the Senate, Gershom Bassey announced this in Calabar, weekend, as he released his blueprint showcasing what he has in stock for the state if elected governor in 2023.
The Lawmaker said he was going to “foster improved education and bridge the skills gap in the state for the digital age and ensure sufficient funding for Cross River State University of Technology, the Institute of Technology & Management (ITM) etc., to provide professional and technical training.”
He promised to revive the dedicated bursary system through the National Association of Cross River State Students (NACRISS), restore the State Library and establish an e-library system.
One thought on “2023: SENATOR GERSHOM BASSEY TO PRIORITIZE EDUCATION, HEALTHCARE, YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AND SOCIAL INCLUSION.”
How will these guarantee employment and empowerment.?
Education is not equal to Knowledge
What will he do differently from the past? the three areas are great but ,the problem of the world is not education but rather, Education that leads to work, Industries that employ .So what is needed is how to ensure all activities empowers the people not same old methods that does not lead to something.
