Gov.  Warns Health Tech Students Against Cultism

Cross River State governor, Prof Ben Ayade has warned newly admitted students of the College of Health Technology, Calabar, to desist from engaging in cult related activities, examination malpractice, stealing and all forms of criminality.

He gave the warning during the 11th matriculation of the institution during which 713 of the new students took the oath.

Ayade, who was represented by his deputy, Prof Ivara Esu, said the government had zero tolerance for all forms of criminality and admonished

the students to work hard and achieve excellent result at the end of their training.

“The experience you will gain will be unique. Here you are trained to help prevent diseases. You will do your job after graduation with compassion. The government is committed to improving primary healthcare in the state to make it affordable and accessible.

“We will employ qualified personnel who graduated from this college to man the primary health facilities

and government will continue to assist the college to produce more graduates,” the governor said.

He assured that the government would meet the school's management to address some of its challenges and advised the management and staff of the institution to be alive to their responsibilities, while parents and guardians should continue to counsel their children and wards to be of good behaviour.

The health commissioner, Dr. Inyang Asibong said she was passionate about the

students that they were “trained to produce the quality that will fit into the healthcare system of the state within the ambit of the state health plan.”

She expressed satisfaction with the strides the college had recorded and thanked the college's governing council, headed by Rt Hon Fabian Okpa for doing a great work, as well as the provost and assured that the health ministry will give preference to graduates of the institution in terms of employment.

The commissioner for education, Dr. Godwin Ettah promised that the government would do its best to ensure that the college get accreditation for its courses.

Earlier, the provost, Dr (Mrs) Janet Alorye Adah had highlighted the achievements of her administration in her address and also sought the assistance of the state government to provide a bigger electricity generating plant, implementation of the new salary structure, approval of funds for uncompleted projects, recruitment of more staff and the expansion of the college to meet the increasing health needs of the state.

In his remarks, Okpa thanked the government for approving the promotion of staff and pleaded for its implementation and expressed delight that graduates from the college would now participate in the National Youth Service Scheme.
