After renovation plans were finalized, the Zamfara State government announced that the state college in Bakura, which had previously been known as the College of Agriculture and Animal Sciences, would be renamed the College of Agriculture and Technology.

While defending the ministry’s budget for the fiscal year 2024 before the House of Assembly standing committee on appropriation, this was revealed by Yau Haruna Gamji, the state commissioner for agriculture.

According to a statement released by Bashir Abashiya, the ministry’s information and public relations officer, this is what was said.

In a statement, it was mentioned that the college was upgraded to fulfill the wish of Sir Ahmadu Bello, the late Sardauna of Sokoto, who founded the institution to train middlemen to work in agricultural extension services in the area.

“The Commissioner revealed that the College will be eligible to receive funding from Tetfund and other donors for capital improvements and capacity building for faculty and staff as a result of the revamping.”

As a condition for the college’s transition from monotechnic to polytechnic status, as mandated by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Ya u Haruna further stated that the State Government has authorized the reaccreditation of current courses as well as the accreditation of technical disciplines that the institution intends to implement.
