Ayade Make History As Cross River Health Staff To Own Houses



History has been made as senior, middle and low-level health staff under the current housing system can now own their own homes in the state of Cross River. This is a powerful motivation and encouragement for front-line health workers who sacrifice their time to ensure that the population stays healthy, especially at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has stretched the workforce.

CRS Digital Governor Sen Prof Ben Ayade, who was represented by SSG Bar Tina Agbor, told the Department of New City Growth that the vision for opening new cities and providing decent housing for Cross Riverians was established. Under the leadership of Architect Ahmed Dangiwa, she thanked the project funding partners Federal Mortgage Bank for their support and sponsorship, which will provide the CRS Medical and Health Workers Union with 400 housing units today, giving them a permanent home to call theirs.

“This development will go a long way to ease health workers from the stress of struggling to pay rents, send their kids to school and other challenges. The comfort of having a house of your own and the joy that comes with it is the reason Sen Ben Ayade has vowed to see this project reach completion giving every necessary support as a government.”

During the groundbreaking ceremony, Health Commissioner Dr Betta Edu commended the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria CRS and His Execllency for his foresight and mega vision that today culminated in the possession of an estate by the Health Union.

Dr Betta Edu applauded Sen Prof Ben Ayade, the Super Digital Pro Health Governor, for always putting his people first. She thanked all partners, in particular MD/CEO of FMBN PLC Architect Ahmed Dangiwa, MD/CEO of AGMB Mr Ngozi Onyemuwa, MD/CEO of Nestvier Nigeria Limited Mr Ernest Joes Obasse, etc., for their support and collaboration and applauded the host group of Akim Akim in Odukpani LGA for taking their people to civilization and creating employment opportunities for them.

The impact will be of great benefit and immense help to our people today with a 400 housing unit that accommodates more than 400 families that will end up providing shelter to more than 2400 people. We strongly believe that the access road will be done as soon as possible.

Let me also use this medium to thank Comrade Benedict Ukpepi, chairman of the MHWUN/ NLC, and Mrs Josphine, chairman of the NNAMM, for their tremendous effort to make this project a reality. During my tenure as DG, this program began, and today I am proud that we are making positive progress. As a requirement, the accommodation system should be legal for all employees, so they are encouraged to work harder by getting something to fall back on when they inevitably retire from the civil service.
