He added that the college had been converted to a campus of the Edo State University, Uzairue.

Obaseki who was accompanied on an inspection of the college by the Commissioner for Education, Dr. Joan Oviawe, said the delay in taking over the property was due to the need to finalise documentation on the handing over

He noted, “The facility has been handed over to us by the Federal Government and we are in full control and will put it to proper use. The delay in documentation has to do with clarity on ownership of the facilities which has been sorted. We are ready to make the necessary investments. Before March 2023, you will see work starting here.”
