Senator Adeola’s Bill On Upgrade Of Yabatech To Full-Fledged University Passes 3rd Reading

Posted on May 19, 2021

The Yaba College of Technology may soon become a full-fledged Federal University of Technology with the passage of a bill sponsored by Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Lagos West) during its third reading on the floor of the Senate.

Leading the debate for the bill, “A Bill for an Act to provide for the establishment of the Federal University of Technology Yaba and for other matters connected therewith, 2020”, Senator Adeola said the bill which was presented in the last Senate but was not passed seeks to upgrade the oldest tertiary institution in Nigeria established in 1947 during the colonial era into a university of technology adding that the upgrade will stimulate our economy’s need for requisite technical, scientific and technological skills for its effective operation.

Senator Adeola, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance, stated that the upgrade will address the huge demand for technology oriented tertiary education that the mega city of Lagos requires to function optimally in the interest of Nigeria adding that this upgrade is different from creating a New University from the scratch as is currently  being done for most new universities.
