Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has commanded that Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta should revert to its status quo ante with complete academic activities restored.
He also established a committee to investigate the operational modalities of Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology, Abeokuta; and Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia.
Ex-Governor, Amosun formerly introduced a policy that replaced MAPOLY with Ogun Poly, Ipokia; and created MAUSTECH.
Speaking on the move, Gov Dapo said, “As a responsible government, we cannot fold our arms and allow the situation to continue.
“We cherish human capital development. This committee is therefore set up to holistically review the status, viability and sustainability of these newly established institutions.
“The review committee is expected to recommend operational modalities for these institutions after interfacing with stakeholders in the education sector.”
“The committee headed by a former Vice-Chancellor of Tai Solarin University of Education, Prof. Segun Awonusi, has the following terms of reference:
“Ascertain the current operational status of Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology, Abeokuta and Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia; identify issues and challenges related to the establishment and operations of the two institutions; determine the viability and sustainability of the institutions on a long-term basis; and identify any other issue(s) related to the objectives of the assignment; and make recommendations for the consideration of the government.”
