    The rector of the polytechnic, Temitope Alake, made this known in Ado Ekiti during a press conference to commemorate his one year in office, while calling on well-meaning Nigerians to support the institution with tractors to enhance food cultivation on its vast farmlands.

    Alake assured that the institution under his watch would work towards the achievement of its three core mandates, namely: training of professionals, ensuring the acquisition of skills by students, and training of minds.

    “This institution will embark on mass food production through collaborative efforts with the School of Agriculture. This will help make food available for our people as the country currently goes through an economic downturn. By the time this one is achieved, food scarcity will be gone.”

    The rector pointed out that under his leadership, the Polytechnic Venture had been revamped towards generating revenue, adding that bread and poultry production would soon be restored to life in order to boost the IGR of the institution.

    He noted that his administration is serious about the welfare of staff and students, while reiterating the commitment of the polytechnic to training students to have manipulative skills to be job creators, and that he has prioritized staff welfare and subsidized their transportation to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal.

    He highlighted infrastructural projects executed during his one-year in office, including the ongoing construction of the new school of environmental buildings, the ongoing construction of the mass communication complex and furnishing of 36 rooms in the students’ hostel building, and the ongoing construction of a block of four classrooms.
