OGUNPOLY IPOKIA GETS ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL TO ADMIT STUDENTS

The Ogun State Government has announced that the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have granted full approvals for the take-off of academic activities at the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia with immediate effect.

The Government made this statement through the office of the Secretary to the Ogun State Government. It stated that NBTE has approved 18 courses and the JAMB has given approval for the immediate take-off and admission of students for 2017/2018 academic session into the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia.

In the statement by the Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa on Monday 18th December 2017, he addressed issues relating to the on-going “Black Week Protect” by the highly affected students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta and the strike action of the lecturers also urged the students to resume their classes immediately in the statement below;

The Ogun State Government has announced that the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have granted full approvals for the take off of academic activities at the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia with immediate effect.

It will be that some students of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta today visited the Governor’s office in Abeokuta to express their concerns about the delay in the commencement of their examinations and continued strike action of the lecturers which they noted had undermined the completion of their various programmes at the institution.

Although a section of the students displayed some unacceptable conduct while the interaction lasted but as a responsible government, we appreciate their anxiety and therefore assured them that government was working day and night to ensure that all issues relating the concerns were resolved.

Following several inspection visits to the site of the Polytechnic, we are delighted to report that the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) has granted accreditation to the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia to commence academic activities in 18 programmes.

In a related development, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has also announced the opening of its portals for prospective students to enable them register for courses at the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia for the 2017/2018 Academic Session.

This development further confirms government’s position that the interest and welfare of all students of its various institutions as well as their parents is paramount and will always be accorded a pride of place by our government. We are confident that normalcy will return to these institutions very shortly.
For the benefit of all stakeholders, we like to state that the crisis arose in the first place from the refusal of the lecturers to call off their strike.

Among their demands is that government must pay them full salaries including the months they did not work on account of an illegal unwarranted work to rule action.

For the avoidance of doubt, Government restates that no one will be paid for work not done. And no one will be allowed to hold the good people of Ogun State to ransom.

We call on our students to immediately return to their classes as we continue to work round the clock to resolve other outstanding issues.
