•Ayade

The Cross River State Government is partnering with a United Kingdom (UK) based firm, Schools Company, to set up a construction and fabrication academy.

The planned Royal Academy for Construction and Fabrication will be the first of its kind in Africa to focus mainly on hi-tech and heavy industrial fabrications and construction.

Speaking after sealing the deal with the UK firm in Calabar, Governor Ben Ayade said: “The Royal Academy will be the first of its kind in Africa that will focus mainly on hi-tech and heavy industrial fabrications and constructions.”

He added that apart from the academy, the state would set up a British-Canadian International School in Obudu and a teachers’ training Institute to be sited in Obubra to complement the upcoming schools.

“This is the greatest thing that Cross Riverians have been waiting for because it is going to develop a new set of workforce that is skillful and intellectually equipped for the 21st century construction and fabrication,” Ayade hinted.

He added: “By setting up this great institution, Cross River State is preparing a background that will create a new story and a new narrative for the new Africa that all will be proud of,” assuring that, “in the next few years, the state shall be the leading light in construction.”
