Mr Victor Fasanya, Chairman, Ogun State House Committee on Education, said this during oversight visit to the institution on Tuesday.

He explained that the aim was to address the issue of two state institutions named after the late social crusader, Tai Solarin.

He added that the amendment was to effect adjustment in the institution’s name in fulfilment of the recommendations of the National Council of Colleges of Education accreditation team.

According to him, this is to ensure full accreditation of all programmes run by the institution.

The lawmaker commended the management of the institution for upgrading its facilities which had aided teaching and learning as well as adding beauty to the college.

Provost of the college, Dr Adeola Kiadese, said the institution, within the last six months, had witnessed tremendous development.

Kiadese said this included purchase and installation of more infrastructure, provision of teaching and learning facilities and prompt payment of salaries.

He said there were new equipment in the biology department, integrated science, chemistry and physics laboratories as well as the school of vocational and technical education.

He said the institution would commence degree programmes by September, adding that the degree accreditation team from Olabisi Onabanjo University had visited the school.

The House Committee Chairman and his team also visited Abraham Adesanya ICT Polytechnic, Ijebu Igbo, where they inspected the Mass Communications studio.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the state, aside from having TASCE, also funds the Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu Ode.
