Making his remarks at the event, Governor Ayade said before now it was difficult to find youths from Cross River with self-reliant skills, adding that the youths of the state could not continue to rely on their certificates, pointing out that they needed skills to be truly independent and to boost the state’s economy.

PROJECTED IMPACT: The academy will make residents of the state self-employed, reduce the threats on insecurity and free youths and their families from poverty, while building their entrepreneurial capacities, which will see Cross River in no distant time emerging as an industrial hub and premier service-driven economy in Nigeria and Africa.
