The late Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige, was yesterday honoured by the Osun State Government when Governor Rauf Aregbesola inaugurated the Bola Ige Mechatronic Institute and sent 31 graduates from the state to Germany for training in the art of new automobile maintenance technology.
Also, the former governor of old Western Region, General Adeyinka Adebayo, also yesterday pointed out that Ige was a practical man who worked for the growth of Yoruba land and Nigeria as a country.
Aregbesola noted that the Mechatronic Institute is another subtle way to improve the economy of the state and that of the country at large.
The governor stressed that the institute when completed would be the first in Nigeria, contending that it would deal with the latest technology involved in modern vehicles.
According to him, “Osun is the first of all states and federal institutions to establish this world class automotive skill-gap bridge in Nigeria meant for promoting skills needed for employability of our graduates, technicians and improvement for artisans in the sector.
“The German world- renowned auto didactic equipment manufacturers, Messrs Lucas Nulle, Kerpen, Germany was awarded the equipment supply contract with the letter of credit opened by the First Bank Plc through BOI.
“To build this institute, we got N1 billion soft loan from the Bank of Industry, we commend automotive council and the first bank who helped us to access it. Before you come back from Germany, your centre will be ready, please learn very well because you will come back to train our local mechanics,” the governor said.
Aregbesola emphasised that the exercise is purely a practical delivery project as trainees shall be tested and certified before graduation from the centre.
“The capacity to maintain the automobile that we have in Nigeria is so low, our auto engineers, technicians and mechanics are getting out of job because of technological changes as the era of trial-and-error to fix auto maintenance is gone; everything is knowledge-based and Osun is, ready to empower not only the indigenes but all Nigerians willing to seek knowledge at the BIMI, Esa-Oke.
On why the institute was named after Chief Bola Ige, Aregbesola noted that it was so because he represented the best technology, a man who never get tired of seeking knowledge.
The governor of the old Western Region, General Adebayo, commended Aregbesola for the positive change he had brought to Osun, adding that Aregbesola is practical as Bola Ige was.
