Fayemi upgrades 42-year-old college of education to varsity


Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has said the upgrade of the 42-year-old College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, to a university was in realisation of his administration’s commitment to the promotion of a knowledge-driven economy in the state.

Fayemi lauded the State House of Assembly led by Funminiyi Afuye on the passage of the bill upgrading the college to a university, saying it showed the commitment of the lawmakers.

The governor spoke in Ado Ekiti on Friday, while signing into law the bill on the upgrade of the College of Education Ikere- Ekiti to the University of Education, Science and Technology, Ikere Ekiti, as part of activities making the second anniversary of his administration.

He said the passage of the bill by the lawmakers was done in the best interest of the people of Ekiti.

Fayemi stated, “I have no doubt that the new legislation will enhance our restoration agenda and make favourable impact in the lives of our people. The three arms of government, as we all know, are to complement one another for good governance, peace and harmony.”

Earlier, the Speaker, Funminiyi Afuye, said the bill was one of the 32 passed by the sixth Assembly and signed into law by the governor.
