2 min read



The bill for the establishment of the Federal College of Agriculture to be sited in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State has been passed in the House of Representatives. The bill passed through third reading on Tuesday.
Sponsored by Dr Alex Egbona, the new law gives backing for the take-off of the new federal institution. Before now, Egbona had sponsored a bill for the establishment of the Federal Polytechnic. The polytechnic has since been established and academic activities will begin soon.

Speaking on the new institution, Egbona said it was a dream come true for him, because he had always looked forward to seeing the birth of a school where his constituents can be trained in agriculture related courses.
He said “today, the House of Representatives passed the bill I sponsored for the establishment of a federal college of agriculture which will be sited in Abi. I feel fulfilled that this has happened and it has happened at the right time.
“Abi is gradually taking a pride of place as food basket of our state and beyond. Bulk of the rice that is consumed in our state and other neighbouring states are from Abi.  There is hardly any part of Abi that you will not see farmers who grow all kinds of crops in commercial quantity; be it cassava, yam, okro, cucumber and the rest.

“So, with this college, our children will learn new ways of agricultural investments. People from all parts of the country will come to this school to learn and in so doing, the economy of Abi will receive a serious boost.
“Having achieved this, I will work with all partners and stakeholders to ensure that the school takes off as soon as possible. I thank my colleagues for their support in making this happen. I urge my constituents to get ready to get the best out of this new school, either as students or as workers or in whatever way.”
