The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has assured the people of Ovia South West Local Government Area of the state that the College of Agriculture, Iguoriakhi and Edo State Polytechnic Usen, will be revamped to enable it produce employable graduates.

Obaseki gave the assurance at Ovia South West Local Government Council during the last leg of his thank-you-tour of the 18 Local Government Areas to appreciate party members for their votes and support.

He said the College of Agriculture, Iguoriakhi, was closed earlier because it was not worthy of being a school of agriculture due to its poor standard.

“I shut down the school to enable me invest money and bring it up to standard. I will revamp the school so that the graduates will be employable.”

He said he is in talks with Okomu Oil Palm Company Plc, Nigerian Institute for Oil Palm Research (NIFOR) and PRESCO Plc., to join hands with his administration to revamp the school, help train students and provide them with employment.

“I will provide allowance to the 261 students in the school and send them to farms for industrial training,” he promised.

The governor said he was poised to revamp the Edo State Polytechnic, Usen, to bequeath it with a conducive environment to train employable graduates.

He promised to visit the school, after receiving the report of the committee set up to look at the overall management of the school.

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Edo State Chapter, Anselm Ojezua, thanked the people of Ovia South West for the warm reception given to the governor. He urged them to continue to support the Obaseki-led administration to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people in the state.

The chairman of APC in the council area, Mr. Peter Ajayi, congratulated the governor and the party for the victory recorded in the last governorship election in the state.

He urged the governor to carefully treat the report of the committee set up to look at the administrative and financial management of the Edo State Polytechnic, Usen, to enable the administration re-position the school for greater heights.

He appealed to the governor to repair some roads in the area, including Iguelaho, Iguekahen, Iguerahon, Madagbayo, Gbelebu, Usen-Ulorin-Ajegunle and Ugogui roads

Receiving some decampees from other parties led by a former Chairman of the Council and leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Aighobahi Monday, Governor Obaseki said APC is not a party that discriminates, urging them to join hands to lift the party to greater heights.
