The Proprietor of Muwanshat College of Health Science and Technology Jalingo, Taraba State, Alhaji Umaru Yola has warned the students of the college to desist from any act that would serve as a constraint to their academic performance.

He made the call during the Second Matriculation ceremony of the college held at the college’s premises in Jalingo.

Yola who is also the Managing Director and CEO of Muwanshat International Ventures advised the matriculating students to be determined and focus on their studies.

He informed the gathering that the college currently has courses that comprised Professional Diplomas in health information management system, Pharmacy Technician, community health, and Public health, as well as junior community health.

Alhaji Umaru Yola also explained that the college is also running a Degree program in affiliation with the Taraba State University Jalingo.

He said the Degree course is aimed at enabling the college to produce well-qualified middle-level technical manpower following the policies of the State and Federal Ministries of Health and Education that will facilitate primary health care service delivery at all levels.

The proprietor further revealed that plans are the top gear to bring more courses to the college, as currently, they are in talking terms with the National Board of Technical Education NBTE to secure accreditation.

He advised people who have the passion of establishing a similar private college to follow due process by ensuring that all courses they will be carrying out are accredited.

“Let me advise that such schools should exercise patience and follow due process while processing for their accreditation.

“I don’t usually want to comment on this because someone may think am jealous or something like that, but the truth is that before I established this college I had to follow all the due process and all our courses are accredited.

“It is a welcome development if we will graduate like 70 or 80 students, and someone in Takum will graduate 80 and another person somewhere will do the same thing, you see it is for the good of our people and the state.

“We have a cordial partnership with various health institutions such as the FMC Jalingo, Taraba State Specialist Hospital, Peacock College of Education Jalingo, and even outside the state where we are sending our students to learn somethings.

“So, I will still advise that anybody that has an interest in establishing a similar college like ours should follow such due process so that in the end, the students will not waste their time and resources, because if the courses are not accredited the certificate will not be recognized,” Yola emphasized.

According to him, the achievements recorded could not have been possible without the support of the State Government under the leadership of Governor Darius Ishaku, the Vice Chancellor of Taraba state University, and the Taraba state Ministry of Health.

“I must appreciate the efforts of the Vice Chancellor of Taraba state University, Professor Sunday Bako, Dr. Garba Danjuma, Dr. Aminu Hassan Mafindi, the Caretaker Chairman of Jalingo Local Government, Dr. Bello Ali, Management and Staff of the College among others.

“I want to appreciate the effort of parents and guardians in paying the fees for their children. I also want to thank the students of the College for making the school proud by scoring Eighty out of Hundred percent in their Diploma examination.

Alhaji Umaru Yola, however, identified the lack of resources from parents as the major challenge of the college and urged the parents and guardians to redouble efforts in paying the school fee for their children.

He pointed out that the College has no means of revenue apart from fees paid by students, adding that it is through monies that the College provides services and pays its staff.

In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor of Taraba State University (TSU) Jalingo, Professor Sunday Bako expressed joy for gracing the occasion being the first time since his assumption of office as VC of the TSU.

While commending the Proprietor for his resilience as well as the management and staff of the college, Bako called on the matriculating students to take their studies with seriousness.

“You are here for a serious business, do your best and concentrate on your studies so that you can come out with good results for this will not only promote the College, but also the University.

Prof. Sunday Bako also admonished the students to abide by the rules and regulations of the college and wished them the best as they pursue their academic careers.

Earlier, the Provost of the College, Abdulmajid Khalid enjoined the students to enlist in the College’s noble and character buildings.

“First among its equal, most preferred college of Health Science and Technology that will produce well-trained and high qualify middle health care personnel that will be competitive amidst the competitiveness of the 21st century.

According to him, the college is determined to address the lingering health challenges affecting Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria, and Taraba State in particular.

He acknowledged the support and commitment of the Proprietor in the areas of creating enabling environment for effective learning as well as the promotion of staff and student welfare.

“Sir, your efforts are well acknowledged not only by the college but by the entire community at large,” the Provost added.

There were goodwill messages from the DG TAC, Dr. Garba Danjuma, a serving house of assembly member in Taraba State, and the representative of the MD FMC Jalingo among others.

Over 115 students from various schools who enrolled with the Solid Foundation Tutors in Taraba State have achieved scores of 250 and above in the 2024 JAMB examination.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, Mr. William Moses Iro, shared this information with journalists in Jalingo, the capital city.

He said nine (9) out of the over one hundred and fifteen (115) students scored 300 and above while others scored 250 and above in their 2024 JAMB.

The organization was established in October 2015, initially operating at Success Nursery and Primary School in Magami with 48 students. 

Over the years, the student population has rapidly grown, and currently, they have over 1000 students.

In 2018, they requested a more suitable location, and the Taraba State Ministry of Education relocated them to Low-cost Nursery and Primary School, where they currently conduct their lessons.

Mr. William Moses Iro mentioned that the center has over twenty teachers, including specialized teachers for subjects such as Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. 

They offer a wide range of courses, including English, Mathematics, Financial Accounting, Literature, Government, and Religious Studies. 

For younger children, they focus on developing their reading and numeric skills and also provide additional support for struggling students. 

Mr. Iro emphasized the need for serious commitment from their students and encouraged them to overcome the mentality that certain subjects are difficult.

He said they aim to contribute positively to the education system and empower young people in the community in line with Governor Agbu Kefas’s free education agenda.

Mr. Moses expressed pride in the success stories achieved by the foundation. 

He noted that many students who previously struggled with professional courses and university placements are now excelling in their chosen fields thanks to the foundation. 

Additionally, Iro pointed out that before the establishment of the foundation, many of them were not studying in universities beyond Yola, Taraba, or Maiduguri, but now they are studying in prestigious institutions such as OAU, Unilag, Nsukka, and other universities, pursuing their dream courses.

Mr. Iro shared that he was previously employed at a multimedia company in Ile-Ife, Osun State but was inspired to start the tutorial center in Jalingo to positively impact students and help them achieve their goals.

The classes run from 4 pm to 6 pm on weekdays and from 9 am to 12 pm or 1 pm on weekends and during vacations, they have full-day sessions to cover the syllabus and teach study skills.

According to him, their main challenge is the lack of suitable venues for classes, especially for general subjects like English and Mathematics. 

Mr. William Moses Iro urged Governor Kefas for assistance in providing a dedicated hall for teaching. 

Additionally, they face challenges with the stuffy environment during hot weather and expressed hope for support from the government to address these challenges to enable them to contribute to their vision of providing quality education.

Shettima Launches NEDC’s School Enrollment Drive Programme

Vice President Kashim Shettima has launched the Accelerated Senior Secondary School Education Programme (ASSEP) initiated by the North-East Development Commission (NEDC) in collaboration with the office of the VP to enhance child enrollment drive in schools within the North-East sub-region.

Speaking during the launching of the programme in Bauchi on Saturday, the VP said that consequences of the nation’s action and inaction were evident in all indices used to assess development.

He said while primary education provides a foundation, secondary education is a bridge, adding that the Northeast sub-region has been the victim of inability to enforce a uniform policy to drive school and the persistent cultural perversion to formal education in the country.

“We in the Northeast occupy a quantum of position in ranking of essential services. Education being a key sector of this country, this is especially pronounced in the post primary education, while the Northeast secondary school enrollment drive stands at 19 percent, far below the nation’s 39 percent,” he said.

Earlier, the Managing Director of NEDC, Mohammed Alkali, said that the primary education completion level of 85 per cent in the Northeast is among the best in Nigeria, but secondary school enrolment is a mere 15 per cent, the second worst nationally.

According to him, due to the challenges in the post-primary education segment, JAMB UTME applications and admissions into tertiary institutions in 2019 were the lowest for the Northeast compared to other regions.

He added that, nationally, the Northeast has the lowest number of teachers and the highest percentage 55 per cent of those available are without literacy skills.

The MD also revealed that the challenges in the post-primary education segment include weak quality indices and a wide demand-supply gap driven by economic and cultural factors.

“The Accelerated Senior Secondary Education Programme seeks to boost the post primary education rating across the North East region through improved enrolment into tertiary institutions.

“It’s also to improve skills development as well as the elevation of teacher quality. It would pay special focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and communication.

“These would foster creativity and critical thinking; motivates and inspires young people to generate new technologies and ideas to learn from inquiry-based tasks,” he said.

Alkali also explained that the programme would also raise awareness about after-school possibilities and the potential for diligent students to become successful and prominent contributors to the North East region and Nigeria at large.

He expressed gratitude to the Federal Government especially, the Vice President for the deep interest and commitment to human development in the North-East.
