2015: Polytechnic offers to assist INEC

27 February 2014, 11:01

Abeokuta - The Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, on Wednesday offered to assist the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with electronic ballot boxes for the conduct of the 2015 polls.

The Rector, Prof. Oludele Itiola, made the pledge at the matriculation of 5 000 new students for the 2013/2014 academic session in Abeokuta.

Itiola said the school lacked the financial strength to produce a large quantity of such boxes, but would not hesitate to collaborate with the commission if offered the opportunity.

He advised the new students to shun all forms of social vices, saying that plans were on the way to provide conducive hostel accommodation for students.

He admonished the students to be job providers and not job seekers at the successful completion of their courses in the institution.

The rector said that the polytechnic was in need of more lecture rooms and new academic staff.

He also said that the polytechnic's library would be rehabilitated to meet world standard to  assist students in their academic pursuit.

The rector commended the state government for providing the school with regular subvention as at when due, saying that it had assisted in the development of the school.
