The Spirit of Enterprise is gaining ground in Etung Local Government Area as Government is set to construct an ultramodern Skills Acquisition Centre (for Women and Youths) and an International Border Market in Etung.

The two projects to be undertaken by Border Communities Development Agency, is intended to reposition Etung Local Government as a prime revenue generating Local government Area in Cross River State.

Speaking on behalf of the Governor, the Director General, State Border Communities Development Commission, Mr. Noel Ugbong thank the people of Ajassor Clan for making available portions of land for the two projects.

The DG disclosed that the Governor, Sir Ben Ayade is in touch with the Presidency to ensure that Etung gets full due as an International Border Local Government.

Ugbong maintained that “on completion, the two projects shall add adequate value to Etung Land with increased skills and commercial activities, the youths shall be meaningfully engaged and as such have no time for social vices”

Reacting on behalf of the Chairman of Etung LGA, the Secretary of Council, Mr. Kenneth Isong pledged Council support to the projects and thank the Presidency as well as the State Government for the deliberate efforts geared towards the industrialisation of Etung LGA, which hitherto is an agrarian LGA.

On his part, the Clanhead of Ajassor, Ntufam Anthony Ntui Etta 11, commended the efforts made by Government to conceive such gigantic projects to be sited at Ajasor and pledged the assurances of the clan in supporting Government in all developmental strides.

The Clan Head maintained that as the last community to the Republic of Cameroon, it should be expedient to have more Government presence, and that they have a surveyed layout purposely designed for such noble purposes.
