“On April 16,  an ever-growing tree of human progress and development was  planted by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“By approving the establishment of six new Federal Colleges of Education, one in each geopolitical zone.

“With that of the North East located at Jama’are in Jama’are Local Government Area of Bauchi State, to address the emergency education needs of the country,” he said.

Musa said the forum appreciated  the President for such a rare privilege for the people of Jama’are in particular and Bauchi State in general, with this growth-enhancing dividend of democracy.

“The support, cooperation and understanding of the Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, is also noted, appreciated and will continually be cherished,” he said.

He said the forum acknowledged and appreciated the enduring and holistic efforts of the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu,

“For not only recommending the siting of one of the  six new Federal Colleges of Education at Jama’are but  also the patriotic zeal with which challenges of the Education Sector are being managed nationally,” he said.

The forum called on the Federal Government to ensure that suitably qualified leadership, governing body and principal officers of the institution are appointed for take-off.

He reiterated the forum’s commitment to support all stakeholders in ensuring the proper take-off and continued growth and development of the college  for the benefit of humanity.

Musa appealed for the support and cooperation of the Bauchi State Government and all relevant stakeholders to enable a smooth take-off of the institution.
