The TVEB Formation
Prior to the assumption of office by this present administration, our Technical Colleges and Vocational Centres have been a shadow of itself as they were characterized with dilapidated structures, non equipped Workshops and Laboratories, Curriculum that lacks most present day essentials, poor Library facilities, amongst other basic necessities, etc due to act of negligence.
Sequel to this, and going by His passion for Technical Education, His Excellency the Executive Governor of Delta State Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa felt there is the utmost need to revamp the system which in his words “unless urgent steps are taken to reverse the trend where graduates of Nigerian universities will rely solely on government jobs to make ends meet, Nigeria will continue to witness high level of unemployment. My administration has kick-started the process of making Nigerian graduates self-employed by encouraging vocational skill acquisition.One of the cardinal programmes of this administration is to ensure that we are able to raise up our children to embrace technical and vocational education that will enable them acquire skills”.
