Aregbesola said the institute is a befitting legacy in honour of the slain Chief James Ajibola Bola Ige who he described as a leader, national icon and a citizen of the world.

 

He regretted that though Ige was brutally murdered by those who thought they could silence him, his spirit has been restless and has been tormenting his killers who have been sinking deeper in what he called “the quagmire of infamy.”

The governor emphasised that the institute is the first of its kind in Africa, adding that the   state’s vision for the institute began with the need to empower youths and equip artisans with the requisite skills to be relevant in an increasingly digital world.
