The Senate is considering a bill seeking to establish a Federal College of Aviation Technology in Ogun State.
If the bill becomes a law, the proposed college would make use of the structure of the Federal Technical College at Ilara Remo.
The bill sponsored by Senator Gbenga Daniel had scaled the second reading in the Senate.
The proposed college if established, would offer full time specialized courses in the aviation industry.
Daniel, in a motion to defend his bill during the senate plenary, said the proposed college would address the existing challenges of technology in Nigeria’s aviation industry.
After a debate by the senators, the senate President, Godswill Akpabio referred the bill to the Senate Tertiary Education and Tetfund Committees.
The committees are to report back to the senate in four weeks.

The existing Federal Technical College, Ilara-Remo is in disuse and can conveniently begin to offer the courses for the Federal College of Aviation Technology, Ilara-Remo.
