Dapo Abiodun Reverses Ex-governor Amosun’s Policy on Moshood Abiola Polytechnic

 

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has ordered that Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta should revert to its status quo ante with full academic activities restored.

The governor also set up a committee to look into the operational modalities of Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology, Abeokuta; and Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia.

Amosun had introduced a policy that replaced MAPOLY with Ogun Poly, Ipokia; and created MAUSTECH.

The changes by the ex-governor led to controversies and protests by both lecturers and students before he left office.

Abiodun while suspending the policy said his directive would remain until the committee determined the way forward for the new institutions.

The governor spoke on Sunday through a statement issued in Abeokuta by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Kunle Somorin, saying the development became necessary due to the fact that the state-owned Moshood Abiola Polytechnic had been in comatose since the Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology and Ogun State Polytechnic were created.

The committee is set up to review the viability and sustainability status of the newly established institutions and also expected to recommend operational modalities for the institutions after interfacing with stakeholders in the educational sector.
