EDUCATION: Benue Governor to merge Benue University with College of Agriculture

Benue State Governor, Dr. Samuel Ortom, has said that its government will merge the College of Agriculture in Yandev with the Benue State University, Makurdi, for proper funding and management.The governor stated this in Abuja during a courtesy call on the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, Prof. Suleiman Bogoro, to solicit for financial support for the study of agriculture in the state. According to him, resources in the state were thinly spread among the existing tertiary institutions and cannot support the desire for quality research and development, particularly in the area of agriculture.

Ortom, therefore, appealed to TETFund management to “provide special assistance to the state, in order to establish a strong Faculty of Agriculture in Benue State University following the planned merger.”
He said his administration had made the development of agriculture a priority and would do everything possible to support its study from primary to tertiary levels in the state.
The governor lamented the high level of graduate unemployment in the state, but he observed that if the agric potential was well harnessed, massive employment opportunities would be created for the youth.
While commending TETFund for intervention in the Benue State University, two colleges of education and a polytechnic, Ortom added, “If TETFund projects were removed from the institutions, nothing will remain.”
In his response, Bogoro said TETFund had been conscious of what to do to strengthen tertiary institutions in the country.

this does not make any sense. The statute establishing each institution is clear. Benu state is rich in agriculture. the college of agriculture is to help develop the agriculture of the state. some states have more than two universities and doing well. I wont understand why the governors of a great state like Benue cannot be proactive in administration. Even private individuals are establishing private secondary schools and universities. Whatever is wrong in Benue state!

@enyinda: this is the highest level of a Retrogressive government. i urged Benue people to kick against this irational decision by the governor. SIR ENYINDA: your comment clearly stated my mind and take on this issue.

Sometimes when I see and hear how leaders in Nigeria manage our common resources and general system tears fill my eyes, God must help this nation!
