Dr. Ogah, the Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, , has said that Nigeria doesn’t need “grammar schools” again.
He said what the country needed for rapid growth and development were skill acquisition institutions.
He stated this during a visit to the Metallurgical Training Institute, Onitsha, Anambra State.
He described the institute as critical for national growth and development.
Ogah said the Federal Government had concluded arrangements to regularise the legal framework for the effective operation of the institute.
He maintained that the ministry of mines and steel development would optimise its focus on the institution to enable it to achieve the goal it had set out to achieve, which is imparting skills.
He said, “We are 60 per cent done with the regulatory framework for the institute; the bill has been approved by the Federal Executive Council and will soon be presented to the National Assembly.”
