The Senator, representing Adamawa North Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Sen Ishaku Abbo, has commenced the process for the establishment of a Federal College of Education (FCE) in Michika.
This followed a bill he sponsored, seeking for the establishment of a model and modern Federal Technical College of Education (FCE) in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The bill has passed first reading in the Red Chamber of the National Assembly.
According to Abbo, Michika is the second-largest LGA in Adamawa state and one of the many areas in the North-East Nigeria which Boko Haram occupied in 2014.
According to Abbo, if an educational institution is setup in Michika, it will help combat the scourge of insurgency.
The Senator through his official Facebook Page said,: “It is, therefore, the duty of government at all levels to rehabilitate and reconstruct these communities with the view of stimulating economic growth for sustainable development – One of which is the education sector.”
“After its establishment, FCE (Technical) Michika will be the destination of choice not only for Adamawa North people, but for the entire state and indeed Borno South and North-East Nigeria.”
