Ayade’s Industrial Revolution: Introducing the Cross River Roofing Tiles Factory

By Nate Otaba,

Roof tiles are designed, mainly, to keep out rain, and are traditionally made from locally available materials such as terracotta or slate. Modern materials such as concrete and plastic are also used and some clay tiles have a waterproof glaze.

It’s beauty and durability naturally captures one’s attention. To start with, tile roofs perform better under harsh conditions than many other roofing materials. They resist damage caused by hurricanes, harmattan, earthquakes, and other extreme weather conditions. These qualities gives it the preference it enjoys in the pool of roofing options. Roof tile is also fireproof, and carries a class – A rating.

Unfortunately, It is usually imported and often expensive. In bridging the high cost of importation into the country, Governor Ben Ayade has, yet again, placed Cross River State as the destination for roof tiles.

Located at Ogoja/Yala, the factory is equipped with the latest technology for the production quality and reliable roofing tiles of different colors.

For Ayade, Housing for all should be a right. As a Senator, his first bill was on social housing.

Beyond Ayade’s industrial drive, the factory was established, primarily, to enhance the social housing policy of his government.

Unarguably, the coming on stream of the factory will drastically reduce the importation of roofing tiles into the country and assuage the difficulty of builders sourcing for it, as it would not only be available, but affordable. This would make real estate industry to strive within the state and beyond.

The state will soon witness a massive construction of social housing schemes to provide houses for the poor as well as providing very advanced and sophisticated houses for the rich, using this technology.
