The Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Works headed by Ephraim Inyang-eyen is planning to revamp the College of Education, Afaha Nsit, by upgrading the roads in the school campus and constructing perimeter fencing in the institution.
This was disclosed over the week when the commissioner led officials of his ministry to the institution for an inspection exercise.
Inspecting the premises and the lecture halls, Mr. Inyang discovered that the school has beautiful infrastructures but no internal road network and adequate level of perimeter fencing to protect the students and the college’s properties.
Upon discovering that some structures are built by unauthorized persons on the school’s land, he issued a one-week vacation order to those involved, adding that if the structures are not removed immediately, government would demolish them.
Inyang revealed that the impending facelift will enhance the college’s chances of receiving accreditations for various courses and promised that before the institution’s 25th Anniversary in November 2016, the facelift would be completed.
Also speaking, the Commissioner for Education, Elder Aniekan Akpan, who was on the team, thanked the Commissioner for Works for the inspection, saying the exercise has provided avenues to remedy the challenges bedeviling the institution.
