The Ada College of Education was established in 1965 as a direct response to the Education Act of 1961 that sought to give Free Compulsory Universal Primary Education to all children of school-going age in the country. It was, indeed, one of the 35 post-middle teacher training colleges set up in that year in fulfillment of the vision of the government of the day. This policy directive precipitated the opening up of several primary and middle schools across the country to cater for the huge number of pupils that were to be enrolled. The huge increase in pupil enrollment created a huge deficit in trained man-power to fill the classrooms. Pragmatic steps, therefore, had to be taken to surmount this challenge.
