A group, the Coalition of all Associations in Daura has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting to the legislative bill for the establishment of a Federal Polytechnic in Daura.

Malam Mohammed Saleh, Chairman of the coalition made the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Daura on Monday.

He said the polytechnic when established would increase access to tertiary education,  generate employment and boost the economy of the people of the host community.

He called on the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) to hasten the processes for the take off of the Polytechnic.

Saleh said that the host community was particularly very grateful to late Sen. Mustapha Bukar who initiated the bill for the establishment of the federal polytechnic in Daura.

He noted that the bill had scaled first and second reading in the Senate before his death.

The chairman also lauded the efforts of the current senator representing the area, Ahmed Babba-Kaita for ensuring that the bill scaled through all the remaining legislative processes, stressing that he had proved to be a very  good ambassador of the senatorial district.

NAN reports that President Buhari formally assented to the bill last week.

The Federal Government had in 2018 earmarked Daura for the establishment of a Federal  University of  Transport to increase access to tertiary education in the area and beyond.
