The Commissioner for Basic Education in Anambra State Prof. Kate Omenugha has disclosed that Governor Willie Obiano inherited non-functional technical schools when he assumed office in 2014.

In addition, she added that none of the inherited technical colleges in the state had accreditation from the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).

The commissioner stated this on Monday at the ministry’s conference hall where an award of excellent performance in the education sector was bestowed on her by a non-government organisation known as Bring-It-On Africa.

However, Omenugha noted that the story had since changed for technical and vocational education in Anambra because Governor Obiano has revamped TVET education through infrastructure renewal at the colleges with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.

According to her, all technical colleges in the state currently enjoy full accreditation from the NBTE just as the governor equally sent teachers to Singapore to understudy the Singaporean Model for TVET education, stressing that technical education has witnessed a new dawn in the state with the advent of Governor Willie Obiano.

Apart from teachers’ capacity building, the Commissioner also disclosed that the state government is currently building hostels in all the technical schools to provide adequate accommodation for students as well as building on partnerships aimed at enabling students to acquire hands-on experience while in school.

She added that the government has continued to strive hard towards the attainment of a work-based certification to curtail the spread of diseases as the government targets zero unemployment in the state.

Presenting the award to the commissioner, president of Bring-It-On Africa, Mr. Chigbo Nweke stated that the award was in recognition of the Commissioner’s great efforts in the basic education sector of Anambra state.

Emphasising that the award was not for sale, Nweke explained that the group bestowed the award based on merit and the impact of the beneficiary on the society.

According to him, the mission and vision of the NGO are to discover, develop as well as deploy talents for the growth and development of the nation’s economy.
