We are pleased with yet another milestone out of our College of Nursing and Midwifery, Obangede. A couple of years ago we helped the institution achieve 100% accreditation of all courses offered with the various regulatory bodies, now we have added to the kitty with an HND in Nursing and Midwifery.

An important corollary to this achievement is that with the removal of the dichotomy between HND and formal university degrees by the Federal Government of Nigeria, our graduates from this course will be getting the equivalent of a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and Midwifery from any of the mainstream universities – only more hands-on and practical oriented.

It is important to us as an Administration to continuously expand both choice and access to academic opportunities for our youngsters in Kogi State, especially in the STEM courses. This always requires that we make significant investments in infrastructure and equipment in order to meet the instructional parameters for the various courses, but it is an obligation which we have happily embraced, not just in this school but in all our tertiary institutions across the State.

We consider such expenditure part of our suite of legacy projects in Education and we happily undertake them because they will continue to positively impact generations of young Kogites long after we have left the stage. It is also an ongoing transfer of our New Direction Blueprint from paper to practice.

In the same vein, we are working overtime to secure full accreditation of Medicine and Surgery at Prince Abubakar Audu University, Anyigba before we hand over. To this end we have built and adequately equipped the PAAU Teaching Hospital located in the same town. It will give me great joy indeed when that one materializes soon.

The Confluence University of Science and Technology which we founded is also breaking new grounds daily – from new infrastructure to new courses to new facilitates for learning and recreation designed to enhance the whole study experience in the burgeoning university community.

To God be the Glory!


Governor of Kogi State
