Dr. Anuku noted that before now, NABCOTECH was a skill acquisition centre operated by the women’s fellowship of Christ Holy Church International.

He said over 150 youth had received free training for short period of three to six months in various certificate programmes.

Dr. Anuku said the recent upgrade, NABCOTECH would now be awarding National Innovation Diploma (NID) either for work or for direct entry for university degree programme or for Higher National Diploma (HND) in polytechnics.

He said: “It has entrepreneurial managerial skill sets that will make students. In this college, our focus is on creativity which is the introduction of something from the abstract. And innovation has to do with a new application of an already existing idea.

“You hardly find any tertiary institution teaching creativity in Nigeria. This college will be the pace setter in that area,” he said.
