Minister Seeks Nigerians’ Support For Education

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has called on well-meaning Nigerians to support in the development of the education sector as government alone cannot shoulder the responsibility of funding of the sector.

The minister, represented by the Director of Technology and Science in the ministry, Grace Jakko, spoke in Ado Ekiti during the 18th combined convocation ceremony of the Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State where 13,677 Higher National Diploma and National Diploma students of 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 academic sessions formally graduated.

The Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola; the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; Chief Afe Babalola’s wife, Mrs Modupe Babalola; and two alumni of the institution, Babatunde Fakologbon and Dr Rotimi Ibidapo; were honoured with the Fellowship Awards of the Federal Polytechnic on the occasion.

Adamu said, “The Federal Government has invested and is still investing heavily in both physical and infrastructural development in the technical education sector in the quest to make quality technical education available to our teeming youths.
