Accreditation team of National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) has urged the Kebbi State Governor to urgently inaugurate the Governing Council of the Adamu Augie College of Education (AACE), Argungu and build more quarters for its staff members.

The team, which was led by Dr. Abdulrazak Adeyemi Badmus, gave the charge during a visit to the Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Muktar Umar Bunza, adding that the school has the best facilities, but the absence of a governing council is affecting its academic activities.

Badmus said: “This institution is the best among schools visited so far in terms of accreditation. It has a very nice landscaping, laboratories and ICT centre, among other facilities.”

Responding, Bunza commended the committee for the visit, saying the Kebbi State Government under the leadership of Abubakar Atiku Bagudu was fully committed to the development of higher institutions in the state.

Also speaking, one of the team members, Prof. Auwal Abdulhamid, said considering that the college was a state-owned institution and inadequate resources of states, they did not expect to see much facilities, but what they saw surpassed their expectation.

He stressed that even the college where he taught, does not have facilities like that of AACE Argungu.

Provost, College of Education, Argungu, Dr. Abubakar Abubakar, commended the state government and the ministry for their commitment towards the success of the accreditation exercise.

Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Hajiya Halima AB Dikko, directors and other staff members of the ministry were present during the visit.
