Obaseki reforms: NCCE approves setup of Edo College of Education

The National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) has given approval for the establishment of the Edo State College of Education, with three campuses in Abudu, Igueben and Afuze, catering for the three senatorial districts of the state.

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, who disclosed this to journalists in Benin City, reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to sustaining a highly-motivated and professional teaching workforce.

The governor, who identified training as key for teachers to unleash their potentials noted: “Training of teachers is the key to educational reforms. I am pleased to inform you that the National Council of Colleges of Education (NCCE) has given approval for the establishment of the Edo State College of Education, with three campuses in Abudu, Igueben and Afuze, catering for the three senatorial districts of the state.

“Also, the Federal Government has approved the establishment of a Federal College of Education (Technical) to train teachers in technical subjects. The school will commence operation in Ekiadolor in the premises of the defunct College of Education, Ekiadolor.”

Listing some achievements by his administration in the education sector, Obaseki said: “As for tertiary education in the agricultural sector, the restructured Edo State College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, with three campuses in Iguoriakhi, Agenebode and Uromi, will admit its first set of students early in 2021.

“We are at the verge of completing the recruitment of fresh staff to commence academic activity at the institution, all of who are well qualified and adequately motivated to position the school as a foremost agricultural college in Nigeria that is purpose-built to provide critical manpower and expertise to support our revolutionary direction in agriculture.

The governor added: “We are pleased with the performance of the Edo State Polytechnic, Usen and will be putting more resources to train badly needed manpower to support and sustain our initiatives, particularly in our Urban and Regional Planning initiatives.

“The Edo University, Iyamho, continues to grow in leaps, even as we continue to explore more avenues to sustain the high standards set in the school.”
