Ile Oluji Gets Federal Polytechnic - Ondo State
Governor Olusegun Mimiko yesterday announced the siting of a Federal polytechnic in Ile Oluji, in Ile Oluji-Oke Igbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The governor, in a statement issued by his Chief Press secretary, Eni Akinsola said he received the letter announcing the establishment of the Polytechnic from the Federal Government and decided to locate it in Ile Oluji.
President Jonathan in the letter signed by the Honourable Minister of State and Supervising Minister for Education, Nyesom Nwike, said "the new institution is established to provide increased access to our teeming youths who are yearning for tertiary education and to provide skilled middle level manpower for national development."
Governor Mimiko said the initiative is to him in fulfilment of the president's promise to give Ondo State its dues in country. And a realisation of his dream to have a befitting institution established for our State in Ile -oluji.
He said he hopes that the siting of the Federal Polytechnic will put to rest all acrimony and illwill in the community and the local government at large.
The approved polytechnic comes with a N1billion take-off grant from the federal government.
This interim measure only applies to investors with rice milling capacity and pure rice traders, who already have rice laden ships awaiting clearance at the ports as at Friday the 13th of June 2014.
