Senator Abbo seeks establishment of technical college of education in Adamawa
A bill seeking the establishment of a model and modern Technical Federal College of Education (FCE) in Michika, Adamawa State has passed the first reading at the Senate.
The Senator Ishaku Abbo who sponsored the bill said Michika is the second-largest local government areas in the state and one of the many areas in North-East Nigeria that was captured by Boko Haram in 2014.
According to him, it’s the first step toward establishing a model high institution of education in Michika that will help in fighting the scourge of insurgency.
“It is, therefore, the duty of government at all levels to rehabilitate and reconstruct these hardworking Nigerian community with the view of stimulating economic growth for sustainable development – one of which is the education sector,” Abbo said.
“After its establishment, FCE (technical) Michika will be the destination of choice of not only those in Adamawa North but also the entire state and indeed Borno South and North-East Nigeria,” he added.
Abbo, in a telephone chat on Sunday, assured the people of Adamawa North of his readiness to go to any length in the pursuit of the dividends of democracy for them.
