THE Acting Provost of Enugu State College of Education Technical, (ESCET), Dr Osondu Eze, says lack of manpower is affecting effective teaching and practical training of students in the institution.
Eze expressed his worries in Enugu on Tuesday, when the Enugu State House of Assembly Committee on Education, Science and Technology, visited the college after the inauguration of the Seventh Assembly.
The acting provost noted that the situation had made it impossible for some machines meant for training the students, to be put to use as there was no qualified persons to operate them.
“Some of the machines were part of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) projects attracted to better teaching and learning activities in the college.
“Many ongoing and completed projects are being financed through TETFund to assist the college.
“We reduced our weeks of examination to two weeks to catch up with the national academic curriculum for higher institutions,’’ he said.
In his remarks, the committee Chairman, Mr James Akadu, said the visit to the college was to enable it to ascertain the activities going on in the institution in the last three months.
Akadu congratulated Eze on his appointment as the Acting Provost of the institution and assured him of the committee’s support towards restoring the lost glory of the college.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the committee was taken round the college to see some ongoing and dilapidated projects. (NAN)
