Gov Sule pledges quality educational infrastructure in Nasarawa
Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa state says his administration is committed to the provision of necessary infrastructure to schools towards achieving quality education.
This, he said, has become necessary in view of the role educators play in the development of the society.
Sule gave the assurance when he received the Keffi Old Boys Association (KOBA) of Government College Keffi, led by its National President, General Engr. Edward Ujege in Lafia over the weekend.
The delegation was in the state to present a 10 point development document for the institution which was initiated and drafted by KOBA.
Sule while receiving the document restated his administration’s commitment to uplifting the standard of education in the state, especially Government College, Keffi, being one of the premier institutions in the state and the country that has produced a president of the federal republic of Nigeria among other prominent citizens.
“I want to commend you for the visit and to assure you of my administration’s commitment to uplift the standard of education in the state especially Government College Keffi which have an outstanding history not just in the state but the country at large considering the calibre of people the school has produced.”
“As no society will achieve meaningful development without sound and quality education, hence the need for my administration’s commitment in that direction.
Sule promised to set up an implementation committee to ensure that the 10 points agenda is carried out and called on other old boys association to emulate KOBA instead of waiting on Government for everything.
Earlier, the KOBA President General, Ujege while presenting the documents to the governor said, the 10 point agenda if properly undertaken, the college will regain its lost glory as of the centre of excellence.
According to him, what is required is a concerted effort by the old boys and the Nasarawa State Government to bring back the college to its glory and fame where graduating students excel in their chosen carriers.
The president-general assured the governor of the association’s readiness to key into positive policies and programmes that would have a direct bearing on the standard of education in the institution and by extension the state and the country at large.
