The Federal College of Education (Technical) Numan establishment bill marked as HB 1196 has passed its first reading on the floor of the House of Representatives, Wednesday.
The bill which was sponsored by Hon. Kwanoti B. Laori, Member representing Numan, Demsa, Lamurde federal constituency of Adamawa State underscores the premium of the lawmaker placed on education.
Responding to the bill’s first reading passage, Kwamoti reiterated the importance of education in the twenty first century saying without it, there would not be any meaningful development.
“Technology is the present and the future, and my constituents of Numan/Demsa/ Lamurde cannot be left behind” he stated.
“With growing unemployment among Nigerian youth and the ever sliming chances of getting employment in the formal public sector, coupled with the effect of COVID-19 pandemic on labour and employment globally, technical education presents a golden opportunity for the youth to learn skills that would make them not only self-employed but job creators and employers of labour themselves”.
He said he envisions an equal opportunity for every child and youth to achieve their full potentials without any limitations.
“The Construction of an Examination Hall in Numan and an Information & Communication Technology (ICT) Centre in Lamurde will help in bringing out the potentials and opportunities for the youths” he stated.
