FEDPOLY Ile-Oluji’s strides excite Akeredolu

By Chris Chimezie
Ondo State Governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), has expressed happiness at the leading strides of the Federal Polytechnic, Ile-Oluji in Ondo State led by its Rector, Prof Adedayo Fasakin, among its contemporaries.

He stated this at a function where topflight academics, including members of the institution’s Governing Council and Management were present in Akure at the weekend.

Arakunrin Akeredolu recalled his visit to the headquarters of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND), in Abuja, where he was told that the Federal Polytechnic Ile-Oluji was comfortably leading within the rank of the four Federal Polytechnics created at the same time by the Federal Government.

“I was at TETFUND and I was informed that of the four Polytechnics created at the same time by the Federal Government, Federal Polytechnic Ile-Oluji is the most thriving

“I gathered that one of the institutions has not taken off at all, while another has about two hundred students. Whereas our own in Ondo State, has over two thousand students now.”

While congratulating the Governing Council and Management of the Polytechnic for the feat, Arakunrin Akeredolu commended the Rector  for being creatively focused and purposefully determined to see the institution reach for greater heights.

“I congratulate the Governing Council whose Chairman and members are here. I must also commend the Rector for his hardwork and dedication”, the governor said.

Governor Akeredolu equally congratulated and commended the people of the host community  through the Jegun of Ile-Oluji, Oba Dr Oluwole Adetimehin for their cooperation with the management of the Polytechnic.

While urging continued cooperation between the town and gown, Governor Akeredolu said the establishment of the polytechnic in the town by the Federal Government has addressed the agitations for a tertiary institution by the people.

He, however, used the occasion to charge the state-owned polytechnic, the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo to continue on the first lane of excellence in the delivery of advanced technical education in Nigeria.

Dignitaries at the event included some Heads of Tertiary Institutions in Ondo State: the Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Akure, FUTA, Professor Joseph Fuwape; Vice Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, AAUA, Professor Igbekele Ajibefun and  the Vice Chancellor  of Ondo State University of Science and Technology, OSUSTECH,   Professor Robert Ogunduyile

Others are: Vice Chancellor  of the University of Medical Sciences, UNIMED,  Professor Friday Okonofua and the Provost of the Federal College of Agriculture, Akure, Dr Samson Odedina.
