In order to facilitate the collaboration, the College has requested that the newly approved Agricultural Machinery and Equipment Development Institute (AMEDI), Lafia, Nasarawa State by President Muhammadu Buhari may commence from the college, as it would enable the students to research more in areas of Agriculture that would benefit the state and Nigeria at large.

Speaking while on a visit with his management team to NASENI, the Provost of the College, Dr. Musa Yahaya Maikafi, said that aside from asking for a digital computer numerically controlled (CNC) lathe machine, the college had earlier requested from NASENI the strengthening of relationship with the Agency, especially in training, capacity building and research to provide manpower and services to Nasarawa State and Nigeria.

According to him, “We earlier requested for digitalized CNC Lathe Machine for the college and NASENI responded by sending a delegation to the school to inspect our facilities and had also granted our request. So we decided to pay a visit to the Agency to make the relationship stronger and find possible areas of collaboration in areas of research and development in modern agricultural tools and the training of our students.

“The world is today running on ICT, so we need to carry our students along, train and educate them on the importance of science and technology. We have identified NASENI as an Agency we can work with for technical and engineering training for our students” he said.

While congratulating the Agency for the new agricultural institute in the state, the Provost solicited that the EVC/CE use his good office to ensure that the institute commenced operations from the college as it would help to develop the students, the state and Nigeria at large.

The Provost also asked the EVC/CE to assist the college in getting the subjects for its Training and Vocational Center accredited and recognized by TETFUND as it would not only benefit the students in the school but also the development of their science, engineering and innovation pursuit.

Responding, the Executive Vice chairman/ Chief Executive of NASENI, Engr. Prof. Mohammed Sani Haruna said that the mission and request by the college to the Agency were within the mandate of NASENI, adding that the Agency was supporting the development of science, technology and innovation in the country as “it is the solution to everything in the world”

He noted that additional 12 institutes had been approved by the President in 12 states of the federation aside each of the six geo-political zones having Agricultural Machinery and Equipment Development Institute each, adding that Lafia was lucky to have the Institute designated for the zone.

Prof. Haruna promised that NASENI would work with the college once the areas of collaboration were identified.
