Edo takes over federal tech college
The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has stated that the state government has taken full control of the Federal Government Technical College, Uhenisi, in Uhunmwonde Local Government Area, after the Federal Government handed it over to the state.
This is according to Crusoe Osagie's office, the Special Adviser on Media Projects to the State Government.
He went on to say that the college had been converted into an Edo State University, Uzairue campus.
The delay in taking over the property, according to Obaseki, who was accompanied on an inspection of the college by the Commissioner for Education, Dr. Joan Oviawe, was due to the need to finalize documentation on the handing over.
"The facility has been handed over to us by the Federal Government, and we are in complete control and will put it to proper use," he said. The documentation delay is due to clarity on ownership of the facilities, which has been resolved. We are prepared to make the required investments. Work will begin here before the end of March 2023."
According to him, the state government will provide the community with the necessary military and police installations to secure the property and community.
Dr. Oviawe, the Commissioner for Education, stated that the Governor Obaseki-led administration had converted the college into an Edo State University, Uzairue campus.
The structure would focus on education, development studies, and agriculture, according to the commissioner, who added that Governor Obaseki had hired contractors to build the road leading to the school.
"The technical school students here will be transferred to the technical school on Ehor Road. The school has some equipment that is in line with the state's strategy for Technical and Vocational Education Training, and the facilities will be upgraded to reflect the new policy direction," she explained.
