YABATECH And KADPOLY To be Upgraded to Varsities.
The Senate has begun the process of converting Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) and the Kaduna Polytechnic (KADPOLY) into City Universities.
The Bills titled, City University of Technology Yaba, 2016 sponsored by Senator Gbenga Ashafa, APC, Lagos East and that of City University of Technology Kaduna Bill, 2016, sponsored by Senator Jibrin Barau, APC, Kano North, scaled through first reading at the Senate plenary on Wednesday.
The proposed laws will soon go through the second reading and debate after which they would be referred to the Senate Committee on Tertiary Education and TETfund for further legislative inputs.
The committee will thereafter produce a report which will also be debated and adopted, followed by preparing the bills for the Third Reading and eventually passage into laws.
