Cross River — Students of the Cross River State College of Education, Akamkpa, have appealed to the federal government to review the status of the institute from a college of education to a university.
They made the appeal yesterday when the National Good Governance Tour team went on an inspection of ongoing projects at the college.
Information Minister, Labaran Maku, said there is a possibility that the status of the college will be upgraded if the students attain high grades and exhibit good behavior.
Earlier, the team inspected an ongoing construction of a 950 seater auditorium.
Commissioner for Education, Effiong Effiong, who took the delegation on a tour of the projects, said the state, which in 2007 recorded one of the lowest performances in the West African Examination Council (WAEC), emerged seventh best in the last concluded WAEC.
