OKOROCHA CAUTIONS CUSTOMS AGAINST ROAD BLOCK IN SOUTH EAST
Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has called for a change in the educational system of Nigeria to enhance productivity and development.
Governor Okorocha made the call when he received the Governing Council of Federal Polytechnic Nekede at the Government House, Owerri.
He noted that most courses in Nigeria do not have positive impact in the economy of the nation.
The Governor maintained that education was the major industry in Imo state and advised them to create more courses that would add values to the lives of the people who graduated from the school.
The leader of the delegation and Chairman, 13th Governing Council of Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Chief Edwin Ogunbor, said that the visit was to inform the State Government of their activities and the progress made in the school.
He explained that the institution would collaborate with a South African company to set up a mining department in the school.
Meanwhile, Governor Rochas Okorocha has advised the new Controller of Customs in charge of Zone C, comprising South East and South South region, Mr. Azarame Ahmed, to strengthen border security, dismantle road blocks within the city and shun double payment of duties in the state.
He gave the advice when the Customs boss paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House Owerri.
