The Bauchi State government has inaugurated a 13 man committee to separate School of Agriculture from Abubakar Tatari Ali Polytechnic (ATAP), and to facilitate the smooth take off of the newly established College of Agriculture.
Inaugurating the committee in Bauchi, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Ibrahim Mohammed Aminu, said the move followed a resolution passed by the state House of Assembly, which urged the government to separate the school from ATAP, to enable the state establish an autonomous college of agriculture.
Aminu said when the college is established, it would play a significant role in the training of farmers on modern farming techniques and create jobs for youths in the state.
He said the new college is expected to commence operation soon, and advised the committee to work hard towards achieving the set target.
