The Japanese Government has indicated interest in partnering the Cross River State Goverment in order to develop the educational sector in Cross River State.
This partnership is in line with Governor Ben Ayade’s vision of evolving the state into an educationally developed state. This initiative will see the state accessing grants for infrastructural interventions for academic institutions and scholarships/exchange programs for Cross River state students.
The partnership was initiated by a request from the Office of the Special Assistant to the Governor on Student Affairs and Youth Mobilization, Prince Michael Nku Abuo.
According to Mr. Abou, “More details of the partnership will be discussed with a state delegation at the Japanese Embassy in Abuja after the public holidays”, He said.
Japan is one of the most advanced economy in the world and a leading sponsor of scholarships to students in Africa.
