Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has unveiled a visionary plan during a meeting with the Ambassadors of South Korea and Turkey on Tuesday.

Wike announced his intention to forge a groundbreaking collaboration with the Republic of South Korea in the domain of vocational education and expressed a keen interest in partnering with Turkiye (Turkey) for agricultural development.

The roots of this groundbreaking initiative can be traced back to Minister Wike’s previous visit to South Korea during his tenure as minister of education, where he engaged in discussions regarding vocational education.

Wike lauded South Korea’s vocational education model, renowned for equipping students with practical skills and preparing them for real-world challenges.

He expressed his earnest desire to establish a vocational school within the Federal Capital Territory, in conjunction with South Korea.

During the meeting, the minister emphasised the significance of hands-on vocational training and explored potential avenues for collaboration with South Korea.

He specifically highlighted the support of Samsung, a global technology giant, for vocational education.

Wike stated, “I desired that we would have concluded with that partnership then, but unfortunately, that was not to be. I would also like to reintroduce that as the FCT minister to see how we can also have that vocational school. I think we have to see how we can come back to that issue because vocational education is very key to us.”

The minister also revealed his commitment to enhancing education in the Federal Capital Territory by launching a “smart school project.”

This project, involving one school in each of the six geopolitical zones, aims to revolutionise education through cutting-edge communication technology and advancements in teacher education.

As Wike’s ambitious plans take shape, the FCT anticipates a promising future in vocational education and agricultural development through collaboration with South Korea and Turkey, thereby bolstering Nigeria’s educational and agricultural sectors.
