Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) will stop to exist in 2021
Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) was recently upgraded to a University of Technology and the Governor assured students would finish their programs before it stops to exist.
According to Tribune, the Governor made the announcement following the upgrade of the institution to a University of Science and Technology.
Amosun who also graduated from the Polytechnics informed the students about the development when students from higher institutions in the state stormed his office at Oke Mosan to complaint about the state of education in the state.
Responding to MAPOLY students complaints, the Governor said lecturers were the ones delaying the commencement of the second-semester examination and that his administration has done its part to improve education in the state,
He said, I am not happy because this is my school. What is happening today is because those that have been given the privilege to serve us are not serving well.
“Everybody here (current MAPOLY students) will finish their courses. It will take four years before MAPOLY will go into extinction, you are not going to Ipokia. If the lecturers don’t want that, we will sort them out.
“We will sort for new lecturers for the university and the new poly. MAPOLY lecturers are not comfortable with it. The appointment they have is for MAPOLY, for the new University, they will have to reapply. If they are qualified, they can take them. I will ask the Commissioner to meet them again.
“They cannot hold us to ransom, they will explain to us why there is a delay, but it cannot be because we are creating new schools.
“We are only admitting ND 1. We are not admitting any student to MAPOLY. We are not sacking anybody, we are not taking them automatically. Why should we carry another place problem to the new one?
“We are only admitting ND one. If you have carryover you are going to Ipokia. I told them (management) don’t admit new students to MAPOLY”.
“Education will be free at the primary and secondary schools, for tertiary we will subsidise it”
Moshood Abiola Polytechnics was established in 1980 and was formerly known as Ogun state Polytechnic.
