v Says it’s handiwork of mischief makers
The management of Imo State Polytechnic, has debunked rumours and speculations making the round in some quarters that the institution has lost accreditation for some of it’s courses and as a result, HND graduates of the Polytechnic are no longer allowed to participate in the mandatory one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.
The management in a release signed by the Head of Unit, Public Relations, Information and Publications, Prince Darlington Oparaocha and made available to the press, said, “the attention of the management of Imo State Polytechnic has been drawn to a media report by one of the local tabloids operating in Owerri, with a purported story of loss of accreditation of programmes of the Imo State Polytechnic as well as alleging that HND graduates of the Polytechnic are not allowed by the National Youth Service Corp to participate in the NYSC scheme”.
“Management hereby debunks the rumour of loss of accreditation of her academic programmes and therefore wishes to dismiss such as false and malicious as all courses run by the Polytechnic presently are approved by the National Board for Technical Exaction NBTE, which is the regulatory body for Polytechnic education in Nigeria”.
The release described the rumour as the handiwork of mischief makers and warned them to desist from their nefarious activities or face the full weight of the law.
