Today, he posted the latest from the factory which got people talking on social media.
The governor had last month, instructed the factory to produce more facemask that would be given to pupils and students of primary and secondary schools respectively, upon resumption of academic activities.
He said: “I think that the federal government will be excited to encourage the resumption of schools because obviously the coronavirus has come to stay with us and the reality is that countries that have attempted to resume schools have had to contend with the increasing prevalence of the virus but obviously how long can we wait as a country?”
“So perhaps, we have to adopt a new lifestyle that will integrate coronavirus as part of our lifestyle.
“And so for Cross River state, we have a strong commitment that our children cannot continue to stay at home. The more they stay, the more the moral decadence, the more indiscipline, the more they become lazy to get back to school and getting started, because for every stage in life there is a time where you have to be in class and once the children miss that delicate phase, it becomes very difficult”.
