NCCE boss, Osemawe commit to ACE varsity status
The Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), Prof. Bappa-Aliyu Mohammad, has declared re-invigoration for the actualisation process of a university status for colleges of education “put on hold” last year by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Muhammed who reiterated this during a courtesy visit to the palace of Osemawe of Ondo Kingdom, Oba Victor Adesimbo Kiladejo, on Tuesday, urged relevant stakeholders to synergise with the commission.
The NCCE boss, who led a team to pilot instrument for monitoring learning achievements in the colleges, at Adeyemi College of Education (ACE), Ondo State, said that ACE, one of the four colleges whose university status was put on hold, was chosen among others because of the level of development and infrastructural facilities in the institution as well as its improved learning achievements.
“From the findings that I have made, Adeyemi College of Education is one of the best five colleges of education in the country. I am impressed with the infrastructure, physical and structural beauty, especially the ICT, they are fantastic.”
“I enjoin the monarch to use whatever means and influence at his disposal to meet the president who has listening ears, while we will also prevail from the purview of public service.”
Oba Kiladejo appreciated the renewed quest for the actualisation of the university status, pledging to utilise all available means to complement the efforts of the NCCE and ACE.
Provost of the college, Prof. Olukoya Ogen, who led the NCCE scribe to the palace, said the university status will further help to maximise the potential of the institution.
