A senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District, Solomon Adeola, has sponsored a bill for the conversion of the Federal Polytechnics, Ilaro and Yaba College of Technology, (YABATECH) to universities of technology as well as, the granting of legal status to the Nigeria French Village, Badagry.
Adeola noted that the upgrade of the institutions will address the issue of unemployment by providing education with the potential to create jobs by its products as well as boost the economy of the host communities through the usage of technological innovations.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary Institution and TETFUND, Ahmad Kaita, on his part said the upgrade of the two institutions would go a long way in ensuring the spread of educational infrastructure and balance access to education.
Kaita averred that the approval of the inter-university center for the French language in Badagry will improve the French language proficiency and language skills required across professions at the global level for ease of imparting knowledge and business practices.
