Posted 7 years ago By Martins Uwoghiren

Rector, Federal Polytechnic Offa, Kwara state, Dr. Mufutau Olatunde Olatinwo, said that fourteen students from the institution are among the beneficiaries of a scholarship award by federal government. Dr. Olatinwo said that among the institutions in kwara state, Federal Poly, Offa has the highest number of awardees.

Dr. Olatinwo said this at the 21st matriculation ceremony for 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 sets, who were admitted into the institution for their National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND).

The ceremony which was done at the 1000 seaters capacity of the main campus, had in attendance the school registrar, deputy rector, academic, deputy rector, admin, the school lawyer and other principal officers of the school.

The Rector said that the school’s management has, in compliance to Federal government’s directives, instituted Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) to make sure that students are well trained in all kinds of small scale production, which is one of the aims to reduce unemployment among the graduates.

He urged them to be embedded in entrepreneurship development programmes setup by the school in order tobe self employed after their programme.

Olatinwo, while addressing the students, warned the new students to be industrious and patriotic that the Polytechnic Academic Board will not hesitate to withdraw any student who performs below expectation in his or her academic work.

He said: “Let me restate that the Polytechnic Academic Board will not hesitate to withdraw any student who performs below expectation in his or her academic work. You should also be aware that offences like examination malpractice, cultism, sexual harassment, gross misconduct, violence etc, attract outright expulsion. I urge you all to make your student Handbook a daily companion for rules guiding you as students of the polytechnic.”
