The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun says, the pioneer Rector of the new Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia, will soon be announced, for the proper take off of the institution.
Governor Amosun who made this known in Ipokia during an inspection of the ongoing construction work at the institution, said he was in the school to see the level of work done and to ensure that necessary structures were in place before the announcement was made.
According to him, “there was no higher institution in the state that commenced academic activities with the kind of structures at the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia, not even the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, which took off with four blocks of classrooms”.
Allaying the fears of lecturers on losing their jobs, Amosun assured that those who were employed at the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, would be absorbed to the new Polytechnic, while those who are qualified to work with the new Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology, would have to reapply.
The Governor, while inspecting the lecture theatres, staff quarters, rector’s lodge, students’ hostels, security post among others, expressed delight at the level of work done, saying that, the institution was gradually taking shape.
