The Committee of Public Relations Officers of Colleges of Education (COPRECOE) has applauded the new three-year education strategic plan recently presented by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, calling on all relevant authorities in the sector to key into it towards achieving quality teacher education in Nigeria.
This was part of a communiqué issued at the end of the committee’s 20th Annual General Meeting held in Abuja between 26 and 29 September, 2016.
The event was themed ‘The Role of Public Relations Executives in Curbing Corruption in Colleges of Education in Nigeria’.
It also congratulated the new Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Colleges of Education, Professor Bappah Aliyu Mohammadu, on his appointment, and expressed confidence in his ability to propel NCCE and, indeed, teacher education to greater heights.
In the communiqué signed by the national chairman of the committee, Mr Bola Adesina, COPRECOE also acknowledged the support of all provosts of colleges of education towards the success of its programmes, but appealed to those that had been preventing their PROs from attending the annual general meetings to sponsor their officials to subsequent editions.
It also appealed to the federal government to quickly find a solution to the current economic recession in the country to salvage the nation’s economy from total collapse.
