The Management of the Kwara State College of Education, Ilorin led by its Provost Dr. AbdulRaheem Yusuf paid a courtesy visit to the Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly Rt HON. Salihu Danladi Yakub in his office today to felicitate with him first on his well-deserved victory in the last House of Assembly elections in the state and secondly on his emergence as the Speaker of the State House of Assembly.
The Provost used the avenue to pray for Allah's guidance on the Speaker in piloting the affairs of the Legislative arm to the benefit of Kwarans. He equally used the opportunity to appeal to the Speaker to use his good offices to save Tertiary education in the State from total collapse.
In his response, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Danladi decried the state of Tertiary education in the state with specific reference to the welfare of its workers who were often left without salaries for months. He promised that both the Executive and the Legislative arms of government in the state would work together to ensure that the lost glories of Tertiary Education in particular and education at all levels in general in the state were restored. He assured the Provost and his team of the State Governor's attention at all times.
He implored the College management to do everything humanly possible to ensure quality delivery in the College stressing that without good Colleges of Education, there can't be good teachers.
With the Speaker in his office were Hon. John Bello and Saidu Baba Ahmed representing Jebba/Lanwa and Adena/Bwaria constituencies respectively in the State House of Assembly.
