In an effort to facilitate the approval of the National Board for Technical Education, NBTE, the Zamfara State Government said it has completed all necessary arrangements for the accreditation of some courses offered by the state’s College of Agriculture and Animal Science.
The Commissioner of Agriculture, Ya’u Haruna Gamji, disclosed this during a stakeholders meeting with the management of the College, where he noted that the move was part of the government’s plans to upgrade the College from monotechnic to polytechnic status.
He added that the state government was making necessary arrangements to renovate the physical structures of the College and provide enough security for a conducive atmosphere for teaching and learning.
Meanwhile, in his remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Garba Gaya, stated that the college had suffered years of neglect by past administrations, despite the fact that it was established by the late Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello.
The Management of the College, headed by the Provost, Habibu Mainasara, then thanked the Ministry of Agriculture and the state government for coming to the aid of the institution.
