Senator Ubah's bill to establish Metallurgy Training Institute in Orumba passes first reading

The bill to establish Metallurgy Training Institute in Orumba, Anambra State introduced by the lawmaker representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has passed first reading on the floor of the senate on Thursday.

In a press statement released by the senator through his official social media handles, he noted that the bill was “part of his efforts to boost Anambra South’s Human Capital manpower development needs”.



As part of my efforts to boost Anambra South’s Human Capital manpower development needs, today, I sponsored a bill to establish a Metallurgy Training Institute in Orumba, Anambra State.

The Metallurgy Training institute will be saddled with the task of training Nigerians in the area of maintenance engineering with the aim of fast-tracking technological development in Nigeria. The primary aim of this bill to create employment and provide the qualitative workforce needed for  technological development in Nigeria.

Upon establishment, the Institute will commence the training of full time graduates in the field of sciences and industrial metallurgy. The array of courses offered by the institute will be strategic and would avail my constituents the opportunity to acquire technical education that provides necessary skills for gainful employment, self-employment, and job creation.

The Bill if passed into law will empower the Institute to award National Diploma and Higher National Diploma based on the accreditation of the National Board for Technical Education.

Conclusively, it is my ardent belief that for our country to achieve significant growth in its technological revolution, there is need to train young men and women in the art of engineering, who will be well skilled and able to maintain and run the country’s industrial sector. It is therefore my expectation that having passed the first reading, the bill will be read the second time and recommended to the relevant committee for further legislative action.

Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Ubah.
Anambra South Senatorial District.
