KWASU Lecturer Tasks Govt On Establishing More Technical Schools

Date: 2018-04-10

A lecturer at the Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, Mr Ibrahim Oseni has tasked both Federal and State Governments to establish more technical schools to equip school leavers with skills to earn a living.

The lecturer of Mechanical Engineering department made the call on Monday in Ilorin in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He said technical schools will allow graduates to be self employed instead of roaming the streets seeking for a white collar jobs, thus tackling the problem of unemployment.

"Time has come for government to invest more on technical schools through proper funding and monitoring; get them equipment needed to train students.

"Technical school will expose students to new things, art work, craft, weaving, painting, tailoring, and plumbing that will make them self dependent after school.

"A standard technical school will breed creativity, discover talents and also reduce the rate of unemployment in our society.

"There are lots of technical colleges in Europe and that is why the unemployment rate is low in those countries; it's not everybody that can study Medicine, Engineering, and Biology in school.

"It is time we emulate Western world where they prioritise technical schools in their educational system. Everybody cannot become a Medical Doctor or Pharmacist," he said.
