Minister Applauds Buhari For Approval of First Federal Polytechnic in Cross River

The Minister of State for Power, Goddy Jedy Agba, OFR has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari over the approval of first ever Federal Polytechnic in Cross River State.

Agba who received the communication through the Federal Ministry of Education conveying the approval of President Buhari for the establishment of the Polytechnic to be situated in Ugep, Yakur local government area of the state, said the gesture shows the love that the President has for the State. 

The Minister in a statement said that he received the news with great excitement believing that the institution will serve as a catalyst for rapid technological development of the state and nation at large. 

He said the approval has shown clearly that President Buhari is a  listening leader who has heard the cries of Cross Riverians that despite Calabar, being the first Nigeria capital city, the state has not enjoyed desired attention from the federal government. 

According to the statement, "I want to profoundly, thank our dear President for his kind approval of the first ever federal polytechnic in Cross River State. The entire state is currently at agog over this news. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has shown uncommon love to Cross River in terms of appointments and developmental projects. We have never had this good. This of course, is a testamount to the fact that he's a detribalized Nigerian and a father to all.

The polytechnic would not only serve as a catalyst for the rapid technological development of the state and nation but it'll create job opportunities for our teeming youths. We are very grateful to the President for prioritizing our plights each time we run to him for help. 

He added that "although, as the state with the historical background of being Nigeria first capital, Cross River State at some point felt neglected by the federal government. But we're excited that tides has changed for the good under the Buhari administration. 

The Federal Polytechnic will be one of the many federal projects that the Buhari administration is embarking on in the state. It was under this administration that the federal government established the Navy War College. Also, under the Buhari administration, the federal government completed the Navy referral hospital which was abandoned for over 40 years. 

The federal government is also embarking on several maintenance and reconstruction of  many roads across the state that were hitherto,  impassable. When you consider that all these and many more are happening in an opposite state, you'll not help but admire the kind heartedness of the President". 

While urging Cross Riverians to support the President Buhari 's administration, he added that "I have no doubt that this will not be the end but part of many other good things that will come to the state under the Buhari administration hence, I call on all Cross Riverians to key into the Buhari's developmental agenda" .
