The Alumni Association of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, has commended the Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, over the support his administration has given to the institution in the last six months.

The association said the entire Polytechnic community appreciates the payment of arrears of salaries of the workers and a 50 per cent increase in the subvention of the school by the Governor.

The National President of the association, Engr. Adeola Victor Adesina, gave the commendation when he led other national officers of the association on a courtesy visit to the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan, in Akure.

Engr. Adesina added that the support from the Governor has brought life back to the institution, especially in competing with other tertiary institutions of learning in enhancing technology and technical education in the country.

He, however, pleaded with Governor Aiyedatiwa to clear the remaining backlog of salary arrears of workers of the polytechnic before the end of the year so that his next term would begin with a clean slate for the institution’s workers.

Adesina also commended the Rector of the Polytechnic, Mr Olorunwa Adegun, for his efforts in developing the institution and pointed the attention of the Governor to the need to appoint a substantive Chairman for the Governing Council of the school.

Engr. Adesina, who appreciated Governor Aiyedatiwa for appointing Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan, a former student of the polytechnic, as his official spokesperson, described the CPS as a thorough professional who has managed the image of the Governor well since his appointment.

Responding, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan, thanked the team for the visit, as well as the goodwill messages and support he has received from the polytechnic community since his appointment.

He also thanked the association for acknowledging and appreciating the efforts of Governor Aiyedatiwa towards the development of the school and the welfare of its workforce.

Prince Adeniyan said the recent approval by the Governor for the payment of the N35,000 wage award to staff of tertiary institutions for the next six months is another testament to his commitment to improving the welfare of workers in the State.

Promising that the Alumni requests will be communicated to the Governor, the CPS added that the Aiyedatiwa administration will continue to prioritize the development of all the tertiary institutions in the State.
