Cross River: Betta Edu To Register Over 100 Students For 2021 Jamb Examination


The CRS Commissioner for Health, Dr Betta Edu, has assured Central Senatorial District Students who are emulating her in academic activities and making life easier for both parents and their wards, as evidenced by the over 700 School children who are under her Scholarship scheme in Abi LGA and close to 100 Youths who are emulating her in monthly small allowance.

Speaking during a courtesy visit led by CENSA Chief HRH Chief Marvellous Imoke, who praised the Health Commissioner for her tremendous efforts not only in making the State health sector one of the best in the country, but also for being the most Youth friendly/supportive State government appointee from her early days as a smaller office to the present.

“Honorable Commissioner Ma, the Central Students Assembly would like to express its gratitude for all that you have done for us, the youths.” We are very proud of your many accomplishments in the health sector, as our health facilities are now very functional, our General Hospitals have a new face, and you continue to serve the less fortunate, the needy, the elderly, the vulnerable, the malnourished, widows, pregnant women, and others on a daily basis. We not only hear about your accomplishments, but we also see them all over the state. We also want to express our gratitude for helping over 700 Abi LGA sons and daughters pay their school fees over the past five years, with over 100 youths now on your monthly small allowance pay roll. Everyone will see the records, and we are fortunate to have you from Central. Please continue to support humanity.

Dr. Edu, for her part, thanked them for their patience in waiting for her to finish her busy schedule, as this demonstrates a high degree of understanding as students despite their busy schedules. “Let me once again welcome you to my office. Educating and developing young people remains a top priority for me. Central Students Assembly, in which I am one of your Matrons by God’s grace, will continue to receive my assistance. Over six people from each of the LGAs that make up the Central Senatorial District are already enrolled in my scholarship program, and with the upcoming Jamb, I’ll be in charge of registering those who wish and are qualified to sit for the exam. I learned that a student costs $4700, so for the time being, I will help 100 students!

“The Speaker of this Assembly and his executive committee should provide me with a well-compiled list of students who wish to sit for Jamb exams in equal numbers across the six LGAs that make up the State’s Central Senatorial District.” I’ll make certain that the aforementioned students are enrolled and that payment is made directly to Jamb when they pick up forms and complete the required paperwork. I’ll make sanitary pads accessible for our ladies who will benefit from the adolescent campaign exercise, which will be arranged through the association’s Vice President’s office.

“Everyone wants to support others,” the Health Commissioner has always said, “and if you deprive yourself of any warmth, you will find a little more to offer to others.” I pray that God will help the next generation and that I will do my best for humanity.”
