...Well i will not say anything till on Saturday that i expect the rain to fall heavily within Ekpo Abasi axis such that the entrance to CRUTECH  will be blocked with flood then the real news will be CRUTECH convocation........... Happy Thursday all!! Not my writing sha.

Those where the words on the Facebook wall of a 300 level student of Cross River University of Technology. 


As management of the state owned institution put preparation on top gear to host the likes Senator Ahmed Makarfi, PDP National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Hon. Siriake Dickson, Governor of Bayelsa State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, and other distinguished Guests  in her forthcoming 6th Combined convocation slated for Saturday, 25th November, 2017 a student of the institution has raised serious concerns about the current flooding predicament the school is facing especial at the only main entrance to the school. 


The Student who goes by the name Lukcy took to her Facebook wall to write the following:


 "So this small rain in calabar is now a news ehn!! Well i will not say anything till on Saturday that i expect the rain to fall heavily within ekpo abasi axes such that the entrance to CRUTECH will be blocked with flood then the real news will be CRUTECH convocation........... Happy Thursday all!! Not my writing sha" with an accompany Image

Recall that Lucky had in time past always warned both management and Government to do something about the flood. Some of her previous post goes thus:

October 19 "This evening after the heavy down pour, the entrance to the state owned university ( Crutech) became flooded with water. Businesses along the entrance re in a pool of water, vehicles going in and out of the school and pedestrians re by this force to use a single lane.
Last year it was recorded that a young lady said to be returning from church after a heavy rainfall, drowned and her lifeless body was found behind the school staff quarters. Cases like the lost of lives and properties are reported daily within the capital city of calabar.
Where we have that army junction along high under goes the same fate each time it rains here in calabar.
I want to plead that something be done about the poor drainage system we have in this state as to avoid more death n destruction of properties in the state"

November 19: "Most times we get in too late for the test but it never stops us from preparing so hard for the exams!! Life is good when you see reasons not to hold on too hard to things you can always do without!! Weather the test or not real students still survive n make it through the exams which is the basis!! Happy Sunday all. Thinking beyond the flood!!"

The student  out of anger and some level of frustration in her latest post concerning the same flooding issue had to Pray for heavy down pour on the convocation day so as to put the governor to shame. 

In a follow up messenger chat with the student by TDN, she revealed her that she is really pained and angry with the government for such level of neglect it has shown towards its only owned university. 

Recall that the Governor of the state is said to be the Visitor to the school and as such will be present to receive his fellow Governor from Bayelsa Hon. Siriake Dickson and the Hon. Minister of Transport and former Governor of Rivers state Rotimi Amaechi as well as Senator Ahmed Makarfi, PDP National Caretaker Committee Chairman.


But come to think of it, what if it really rains heavily just as Luky had prayed? What will the Governor and school management do especially if all her visitors are trapped within the school premises?
