Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has called for a special training centre at making teachers’ education more impactful on teaching and learning processes.
The Governor made the call while receiving the committee report of the takeover of a private college by the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko.
He said the development would help address the agitation for government owned tertiary institution in Ijare and its environs, in view of the all round impacts of the takeover on the area.
The governor equally advised that courses like Child and Learning Psychology and Practical Teaching should be made intense to address the current needs of learners and the society.
He particularly appreciated the Proprietor of the College, General Joshua Omosebi who the governor described as a revered leader for having the interest of his people and community at heart in all his philanthropic gestures.
Akeredolu enjoined the authority of AAUA to expedite actions on the take-over process by putting the place to good use starting from the next academic session of the university.
Earlier, the Chairman Take-over Committee who is also the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Dr. Olawunmi Ilawole, described the College site and its facilities as excellent which would add values to the University’s Part-time and Pre-degree programmes.
In his remarks at the occasion, the Chairman, Governing Council of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Dr. Tunji Abayomi, commended Governor Akeredolu for his giant strides in the education sector which according to him have started yielding qualitative dividends in the state.
