The Chairman of Ogun State House Committee on Education, Mr. Victor Fasanya has revealed during oversight visit to the Tai Solarin College of Education on Tuesday that the Ogun State Government plans to amend the law establishing Tai Solarin College of Education.
He explained that the aim was to address the issue of two state institutions named after the late social crusader, Tai Solarin.
He added that the amendment was to effect adjustment in the institution’s name in fulfillment of the recommendations of the National Council of Colleges of Education accreditation team.
According to him, this is to ensure full accreditation of all programmes run by the institution.
The lawmaker commended the management of the institution for upgrading its facilities which had aided teaching and learning as well as adding beauty to the college.
Provost of the college, Dr. Adeola Kiadese, said the institution, within the last six months, had witnessed tremendous development.
Kiadese said this included purchase and installation of more infrastructure, provision of teaching and learning facilities and prompt payment of salaries.
He went on to say that, there were new equipment in the biology department, integrated science, chemistry and physics laboratories as well as the school of vocational and technical education.
He added that the institution would commence degree programmes by September, adding that the degree accreditation team from Olabisi Onabanjo University had visited the school.
