The ministry of Education has finally unveiled the six newly approved federal colleges of education in the country.
Recall Mouthpiece NGR had last week Wednesday reported that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the establishment of new college of education in Iwo Local Government, Osun state.

The statement reads: “The attention of the Federal Ministry of Education has been drawn to 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, which has been widely circulated in the social and conventional media
