The Federal Ministry of Education has expressed dismay at  the mutilation of official correspondence between the Federal Ministry of Education and the Government of Osun state over the location of the newly approved Federal College of Education in the state.


According to a statement made available to journalists by the Director Press & Public Relations Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Bem Goong, the misleading information has been widely circulated in both social and conventional media outfits across the country.


In the light of this misinformation the Federal Ministry of Education therefore wishes to clarify the general public on the actual  locations of the Colleges as follows:-


1. BAUCHIJAMAARE IN JAMAARE LOCAL GOVERNMENT
2. BENUEODUGBO IN APA LOCAL GOVERNMENT 
3. EBONYIISU IN ONICHA LOCAL GOVERNMENT
4. EDOEKIADOLOR IN OVIA NORTH EAST LOCAL GOVERNMENT
5. OSUNIWO IN IWO LOCAL GOVERNMENT
6.SOKOTOGIDAN MADI IN TANGAZA LOCAL GOVERNMENT.


Goong said the letters to this effect have already gone to the relevant Governors, while a Technical Team from the Federal Ministry of Education (FME) and the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) will be visiting the benefiting states to inspect and take on-the-spot assessment of  the sites in preparation for the take-off of the Colleges in October 2020.
