Senate on Tuesday approved the establishment of Federal Polytechnic Aba, saying the institution would provide technical education to the people in the zone.
In the committee report by Senator Jobrin Barau representing Kano North Senatorial district, it stated that Polytechnic education became necessary in view of the fact that the people of Abia and particularly, Aba were highly industrialised people.

“That the Senate do receive and consider the report of the Committee on tertiary institutions and Tetfund on the Federal Polytechnic, Aba, Abia State.”
Sponsor of the bill, Senator Theodore Orji representing Abia Central Senatorial district maintained in his lead debate during the first reading that the establishment of the institution would bridge educational gaps that Abia people were experiencing.
