Ever since the emergence of the newly elected NANS Zone ‘B’ Officials corrosively led by Comr. Godson Okereke popularly known as Aluta Bishop, NANS has been at the forefront of students struggle and has also persistently called on the Government to pay constant and undivided attention to education.

The Director of Special Duties Comr. Arigbe Victor yesterday 29th January, in an inspection and investigative tour of the “phased out” College of Education, Ekiadolor Benin City, acknowledged the imbroglio that has characterised the institution.

During the inspection, the Director of Special Duties held a meeting with the Dean of Students, the Chairman COEASU, and the Chairman SSUCOEN. During the meeting, it was discovered that the Institution is neither a College nor a University as it stands, because the law establishing it as a College has been repealed since 2014 with the upgraded status of a University an illusion. It was also discovered
that the Institution has not admitted students for the past three academic sessions thereby phasing out the institution.

The total infrastructural decay also raised the questions about the institution in the new milieu, the classrooms and halls of residences are in porous and unfavourable conditions uninhabitable and
condemnable. While walking round the Ekiadolor Community, it was also discovered that the socio-economic activities of the area has been paralysed.

NANS Zone ‘B’ hereby call on Edo State Government to with immediate effect reverse the institution to the status of a college that it was, or better still, be sincere with its objectives to upgrade the
institution to an enviable university. “We are bringing to the attention of the Edo State Government, that the paralytic situation of the old College of Education, Ekiadolor does not only cause economic
wastage, but it is also a waste of human capital resources and a monumental disregard for intellectual properties.”
