The Federal Government has presented
operational licences to four new private
polytechnics and 34 Innovation Enterprise
Institutions(IEIS) and Vocational Enterprise
Institutions (VEIS).

The new polytechnics are Nacabs
Polytechnic, Akwanga, Nasarawa State; Uyo
City Polytechnic, Akwa Ibom State; the
Polytechnic Igbo-Owu, Kwara State and
Balmor Polytechnic, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Speaking at the licence presentation in
Abuja, the Minister of Education, Malam
Ibrahim Shekarau, said that the move was
in tandem with the quest by the Federal
Government to build skilled manpower for
the country.

He said the polytechnics, the IEIs and the
VEIs were expected to focus on applied
learning that would be relevant to the
development needs of the country.
Earlier, Dr Masa’udu Kazaure, the Executive
Secretary of NBTE, said VEIs and IEIs were
institutions inaugurated by the Federal
Government to provide alternative route to
higher education.

He said IEIs and VEIs were private
institutions that would offer vocational,
technical, technology or professional
education and training at post-basic and
tertiary levels.

According to him, the enterprise
institutions will equip secondary school
leavers and working adults with vocational
skills and knowledge to meet the increasing
demand for the country’s technical
manpower. (NAN)
