My Vision on Education

My Vision for education in Akwa Ibom State is that of a State with functional, qualitative education which will serve as the catalyst for development, job creation, poverty alleviation and as a foundation for our envisaged science and technology and industrial revolution.

To achieve the desired functionality and quality in our educational system, this sector which is the main determinant of our collective future must be totally re-organized. Our strategy for this aspect will be the production of quality teachers, expansion of our education infrastructure and increased funding.

To reorganize and re-position our educational sector, we will embark on the following:

The state government intensified efforts at revamping the educational sector by rehabilitating dilapidated schools and boosting the morale of teachers. Akpabio introduced a free education policy for the first nine years in public schools and he has made the Akwa Ibom state University of Technology his priority educational project. Its new management team is working towards getting the nod of the National Universities Commission (NUC), and academic and other activities are set to commence in the institution before September.

Determined to provide affordable and qualitative education to its citizens, Akpabio has also charged the commissioner for education and all agencies involved in education management in the state to map out workable solutions to checkmate the level of decay in the public educational sector. In fact, the state government has concentrated more on revamping the educational sector by rehabilitating dilapidated schools and boosting the morale of teachers.

Rehabilitating dilapidated schools, boosting the morale of teachers which was at its ebb before now. Also, the Akpabio administration, in an attempt to ensure that children in the state enjoy their right to education, has introduced a free education policy for the first 9 years in public schools.

The Akwa Ibom State University of Technology is a priority educational project of the Akpabio’s administration. Conscious of the dearth of professionals of Akwa Ibom origin in this field, the previous administration conceived the institution to meet this need. However poor management and implementation remained the albatross of this noble idea and as at the terminal date of the previous administration, nothing tangible was on ground to show for the funds committed into the project.

The Akpabio administration, desirous of helping improve the academic standard in the state, has partnered with the management of federal government owned University of Uyo to recover the courses delisted during the last visit of the NUC accreditation panel to the institution. Apart from that, the state government has rehabilitated roads in the university and governor Akpabio has assured the University of his Administration’s support in other areas.
