The Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto will soon become a University of Education as it marked its 50 years of existence on Monday.
The plan once achieved, would make the Shehu Shagari College of Education, to be the first of its kind to be raised to the level of a university in Northern Nigeria.
This was disclosed on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee celebration and the 22nd convocation of the college by Governor Aminu Tambuwal.
Tambuwal said, “The decision to upgrade the institution is premised on the enviable track record it has established in the past half a century, its uncommon and trademark foresight, vision, creativity, and leadership acumen historically associated with our forefathers for over two centuries.
“In addition, the college is one of the high-ranking teachers training institutions and among the largest producers of teachers in Nigeria.
“In furtherance of its upgrading, approval has been given for the construction of two-storey students’ hostels, capable of accommodating over 400 students, to address the challenges of accommodation.
“While I am happy for the progress recorded by the college over the past 50 years, I urge the leadership of this glorious institution at all levels to be more prepared to position the college for greater achievements in the 50 years ahead.”
