Poor road, erosion challenges threaten Federal College of Education Technical Umunze


By Okechukwu Onuegbu

The Federal College of Education, FCE (Technical), Umunze, Orumba South Local government Area, Anambra State has lamented over deplorable road conditions and ecological challenges bedevilling the citadel of learning.

According to Provost of the institution, Dr Tessy Okoli, the school environment was predisposed to erosion because of lack of internal road network and flooding, which called for an urgent attention from relevant authorities.

Okoli, flanked by other management of the institution, disclosed this while receiving the executive of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Anambra State council during a courtesy call on the institution recently.

She noted that management of the institution had executed some projects to change the face of the College of Education but more funding and other assistance were needed from the government and other institutions to address the challenges. 

"We need the state and federal government urgent intervention. Anambra State also has so many great individuals and institutions capable of addressing our challenges. Our former governor, Chief Willie Obiano promised us a bus but it was not redeemed before his exit from office. We are congratulating the new administration led by Prof. Charles Soludo. We know that government is continuous. So, we are calling on his attention to the promise including the ecological challenges and need to link the internal roads of our school," she stated.

On staff welfare, the Provost said it was the top priority of the institution management because they were aware of its contributions to improved workforce and efficience service delivery. 

Also speaking, the Deputy Provost, Federal College of Education (Technical), Umunze, Dr Christopher Ugwuogo, commended the NUJ Executive for the visit, assuring that the institution was ready for the partnership which according to him, would be a symbiotic relationship.

Earlier, the Chairman, NUJ, Anambra State Council, Dr Odogwu Emeka Odogwu, lauded the efforts of the Provost to uplift the institution through execution of different projects and prompt payment of workers salaries, and sought their partnership to showcase the college of education to the world.
