Proprietor wants Nasarawa gov-elect to prioritise science, technical education
Mr David Abuluya, the Founder of Nacabs Polytechnic, Akwanga, Nasarawa State, has called on the incoming administration in the state to give prioritise science and technical education because of their importance to national development.
Abuluya made the appeal on Friday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria in Akwanga.
He said that the nation and the entire world had gone through computerisation, hence the need for the incoming administration to prioritise science and technical education in the state.
“I want to appeal to the Executive Governor of Nasarawa State to declare state of emergency in Science and technical education in the state.
“The state science education is deteriorating. If state of emergency is not declared, this state will be completely left out of science and technology in this technological era of world computerisation.
“Engr. Abdullahi Sule, the Nasarawa State governor-elect is a science oriented man. If he had not gone through the sciences that time, he would not be where he is today in terms of engineering.
“I believe when he get there (sworn-in) as governor, the science and technical education which some of us have being yearning for since he will look into it,” he said.
Abuluya also commended the state governor-elect for sponsoring five students annually in the institution for the past three years.
“How I wish Engr. A A Sule will extend what he had done for Nacabs to the whole state.
“He has sponsored five students to this place for the past three years and he will pay the school fees once and we appreciate him for that.
“Now that he is the governor-elect, I pray and wish that this message would get to him so that we will give more scholarship to the less privileged,” he added.
The proprietor disclosed that the school has also awarded tuition free scholarship to more than 150 students studying in the institution.
He said that the aimed of the scholarship is to encourage indigent children who want to go to school but cannot afford the registration.
According to him, their tuition fee is free for the period of their studies in the institution.
Abuluya also advised the students against cultism, examination malpractice and other social ills capable of affecting their education and the society at large.
