Sogunro according to the Nation also listed the institution under his leadership. He said the polytechnic got patent rights for three machines developed by members of staff and students, adding that the machines are fuel-less electric power generating set, automatic car jack, and biogas energy system.

He said: “The academic board has approved the commencement of general agriculture for all students. This, in effect, is to mobilise our students for the realisation of mass production of agricultural produce, poultry, fish farming and the likes. This is to encourage food security and ensuring that we are able to produce well for our communities.

“The polytechnic also acquired water space and two hectares of land for fish farming and horticulture in Agbowa area. It is worthy of note, in a bid to ensure the security of lives and property, the polytechnic is strengthening the surveillance by providing CCTV on campus.”

The radio station will operate on 101.9 frequency, the Nation reports.
