Governor Adeleke Set to Revive Osun Technical Colleges, Visit Innovation Hub, Abuja


Governor Ademola Adeleke has vowed to revive the abandoned upgrading project for the nine technical colleges in Osun state, requesting the consultant to mobilize the state for the completion of the project.

The Governor made this declaration on Tuesday while on a courtesy visit to the office of the General Manager of the Innovation Hub, Mr Meir Dagan, who is the consultant for the project.

“We cannot afford to abandon such a lofty project. We need technical colleges more than ever before to address the increasing joblessness in the country.

“Why would an elected Governor abandon projects inherited from Aregbesola and others? It is sheer insensitivity. Is government not continuum? For me and my team, we are completing such projects even as we start our own. Let me declare here that technical colleges are back from now onward.

“Please send your team to Osun to revive the project. Many equipment that are locked up should not waste away. We need the technical colleges to be upgraded to meet the job needs of our teeming population”, Governor Adeleke told the General Manager of the Innovation Hub, Mr. Meir Dagan.

The Governor who was taken around the training facilities and equipment lamented that most equipment in use at the Hub has been locked up in Osun for several years, expressing shock that a government for whatever reason could abandon a critical project like the technical college upgrade.

Briefing the Governor after a tour of the facilities, the General Manager, Mr Dagan said his firm is ready to resume the upgrade project as it would help job creation, entrepreneurship, self employment, economic vibrancy, and wealth generation for the people of Osun state.

“We are ready to deploy to Osun state to complete the project. We really appreciate the commitment of Mr Governor to the revival of the project. Your visitation today is a confirmation of your great leadership in Osun state”, Mr Dagan said.

The Governor was accompanied on the trip by the wife of the Governor, Chief(Mrs) Titi Adeleke, the Commissioner for Federal Affairs, Hon Adenike Adeleke, and other state officials.
