While noting that despite the change in the name, the governor pointed out that the institution will continue to run its degree programmes, as well as accommodate science and technology courses.

He declared that his administration would be supporting the College in the area of infrastructure, disclosing that the ongoing reconstruction of road from Ala passing through Omu-Ijebu would soon be commissioned.

“We are gathered today to celebrate a milestone to a glorious future for this institution. Today Tai Solarin College of Education will cease to exist and in its place, we now have Sikiru Adetona College of Education Science and Technology, Omu-Ajose.

“The College will remain a College of Education with a mandate to groom middle-level teachers for our educational System. The College will continue to run its degree programmes in affiliation with universities.

“We will also be supporting the College in the area of infrastructure; in fact, very soon, we will commission the internal roads of the College and the road from Ala passing through Omu,” he said.

Abiodun who said that Ijebuland has prospered under the Awujale also commended the monarch for single-handedly establishing a world-class International Institute of Governance at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye.

He further acknowledged the monarch for not only creating room for development in the land and praised him for also facilitating developmental programmes through his friends and associates in the state.

The state helmsman who also called on the sons and daughters of Ijebuland to see the unveiling of the new college as a challenge to make their presence felt in the institution, said: “Just as Ijebuland is blessed with the long and progressive reign of Kabiyesi, the time has come for us to join hands in creating a legacy for Kabiyesi by investing heavily in this institution”.
