Speaking at the same event, Gbudue state Governor Badagbu Daniel lauded the administration of the Catholic Diocese of Tambura Yambio for establishing the College.
He said education was the only key to nation building and pledged commitment to maintain security in the state to allow children to go to school.
The governor urged the graduates to be the ambassadors of peace, adding that youths pursue their dreams in order to be better citizens.
The acting Director General of Education Mr Samuel Ikpiro urged the administration of the College to continue with the training program.
He said approximately there were 35,000 untrained teachers across the country and needed training.

He appealed to the authorities to maintain the prevailing peace in Gbudue state to allow children to access education.
“Without peace, parents cannot send their sons and daughters to school,” Mr Deng said.
This marked the third batch of graduation since the College was established five years ago.
