College of Agric, Iguoriakhi to commence academic activities in January 2022 – Obaseki

BENIN CITY – The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said academic activities will commence at the Edo State College of Agriculture in Iguoriakhi, Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state, in January 2022.

The governor gave the assurance during an inspection of ongoing construction work at the campus of the college in Iguoriakhi near Benin City.

He said, “You will recall that we promised to rebuild all our tertiary institutions. We have almost finished work with the School of Nursing and accreditation process is on and hopefully admission for the School of Nursing will commence later this month or very early next month.”

“There is also good progress on the construction work at the College of Education, Abudu Campus of the College. We are revamping Igueben Campus and we have started work in Afuze Campus. Accreditation for the College of Education has been completed and the admission process is ongoing,” he added.

According to him, “Iguoriakhi is the main campus for the Edo State College of Agriculture and there are two other satellite campuses and what we have seen here today is a major construction work.

“We are building all the facilities required to get this campus ready for academic activities hopefully by January next year. The accommodation for students is in progress.”

“It will have a 1,000-seater capacity auditorium, with another 250-seater capacity auditorium which you can see are under construction. There will be two buildings to host the six facilities that we would start with and hopefully we would expand to about eight later,” Obaseki added.

Obaseki noted, “The recruitment process for the faculty is currently ongoing. What I have seen on site here and with the speed at which the contractor is moving, this place should be ready by Christmas and this institution should be reopen by January next year.”

    How exciting to have all the Edo Government owned tertiary institutions splendidly revamped!!! How wonderful to have the following awesome Edo Stare owned institutions:-

    1. Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma.

    2.Edo State Polytechnic, Usen.

    3. Edo College of Education, Abudu, with two other campusus ,one in Afuze and the other in Iguegben.

    4.. Edo College of Agriculture and Natural Recourses, Iguorhiakhi , with one campus in Uromi and another in Agenegbode.

    5. The Edo College of Nursing Sciences, Benin-City,

    6. Edo Univetsity, Uzaire.

    Well done to our excellent His Excellency Godwin (God Always Wins) Obaseki!

    Surely these aforementioned institutions are bound to
    tremendously contribute to the enhancement of industralization and prosperity in our great Edo State!!!

    I humbly suggest that each of the aforementioned and all other tertiary institutions in Edo State should establish schools/faculties of Hotel and Restaurant Management, Catering, Domestic Science, Tourism, Edo and Edoid Languages and Edo and Edoid Cultures; with Hotels, Restaurants, Catering Services, Tourist Offices and Farms attached to them. Doing so will generate the much needed money to bring the institutions to much greater heights!!!

    I also humbly suggest that the Federal Government should oblige to Governor Obaseki’s request to connect a railway tract from Agbor to the Benin Industrial Park in Ologbo. When the tract leaves Agbor it should please pass through Abudu, then Ugoneki, the site of the StateliteTown of our great Uku Akpolo Kpolo Omo N’Oba N’Edo His Royal Majesty Oba Ewuare the Second. From Ugoneki, the railway tract should then proceed to Ologbo and then to Ughoton (Gwato), then to the Benin River Port. From the Benin River Port the rail tract should go to Ekehuan to Unuamen Town to Siluko Town to the Edo South Udo Town to Ehor Town and finally back to Ugoneki!!!
    Along the way the site of Edo Inland Dry Port should, of course, be connected to this railway tract!!!

    The following three cash crops are being currently seriously cultivated in Edo State:-

    1.The Oil Palm!!!

    2. The Rubber Trees!!’

    3. The Cocoa Crops!!!

    Of course, all other branches and aspects of Agriculture, Forestry and other Natural Recourses are also being seriously cultivated!!!

    Let’s continue to MEGA: Make Edo Great Again!!!

    Win! Win! Win! Good luck, always!!!
