Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has said he will upgrade the International Vocational Technical and Entrepreneurship College (IVTEC), Ajase-Ipo to a Higher National Diploma awarding institution.

Speaking at the 2nd graduation ceremony of the college in Ajase-Ipo yesterday, Abdulrazaq, said focus would be on the need to graduate job creators rather than job seekers which necessitated the huge investment in the establishment of IVTECH.

He said the state was considering amendment of the law that established the institution to make it a National Diploma and Higher National Diploma-awarding college.

“The process is already on and the college will be accompanied with necessary infrastructural facility after it has been granted.

The governor, who was represented by the state commissioner for Tertiary Education, Mr. Ibrahim Sulyman, at the event, said that the greatest problem facing the world was inability to provide sustainable employment to teeming youths.

The rector of the institution, Dr. Ade Somide, said 210 students graduated in fields including automotive mechanic, plumbing, masonry, refrigeration and air-conditioning repairs and maintenance, desk top publishing and computer application.
