He said the appeal became necessary due to the priority the present administration of Governor Samuel Ortom, has placed on science and technical education as a catalyst for development maintaining that the Governor’s dream of placing emphasis on science and technical education in order to build in the younger generation self reliant spirit cannot be achieved with out trained teacher’s.
