Also with the president at the occasion, is the supervising Minister of Education, Barrister Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, who when given the microphone, described the establishment of the Federal Polytechnic of Oil and Gas in Bonny, Rivers State as a practical expression of the President’s commitment to improving access to tertiary education, creation of employment and the empowerment of the youths with the necessary skills to contribute to national development and in realizing of the 2020 vision.
Barr. Mike also went on to stated that no previous administration in the history of Nigeria, has contributed to educational advancement the way the Jonathan administration has done since the year 2011.
