  Abiodun  spoke through his Special Adviser on Technical Education, Prof. Joseph Odemuyiwa during an assessment tour of the state's technical colleges.

The Prince Dapo Abiodun-led administration has vowed to make Ogun State the commercial technical hub of the country, through its Science and Technical Colleges.

      

         The Special Adviser to the Governor on Technical Education, Prof. Joseph Odemuyiwa stated this during an assessment tour of technical colleges across the State.


      He said that the colleges were adequately equipped for artisans to showcase their craftsmanship and improve their entrepreneurial skills in areas such as shoemaking, painting, carpentry work, furniture making, block making, textiles, thereby increasing their chances of being employed.


Prof. Odemuyiwa said that Technical Education could improve the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of any State, which he added, informed the decision of the present administration to restructure the sector and make it economically viable.


He urged the staff to be proactive in delivering qualitative and quantifiable inputs into the lives of the learners, as it would be detrimental for a technical college to have a dearth of technicians, advising them to imbibe maintenance culture by taking adequate care of facilities in the Colleges.  


 


The Principal, Government Science and Technical College, Ijebu-Igbo, Mrs. Kuko Kehinde, on behalf of her counterparts in other technical colleges in the State, promised their unflinching support in moving education to the next level.


Mrs Kuko lauded  the   government for commitment to restructuring technical education in the State, according to Mrs. Busayo Malaolu, Media Aide to Prof. Joseph Odemuyiwa.
