Dapo Abiodun reverts MAPOLY's status
Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun has constituted a committee to look into the operational modalities of Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology (MAUSTECH), Abeokuta and Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia.
The committee, headed by former Vice-Chancellor of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Prof. Segun Awonusi. Abiodun also ordered that the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, should revert to status quo ante with full academic activities restored while the committee determines the way forward for the new institutions.
This development was contained in a statement issued in Abeokuta by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin.
Recall that Abiodun’s predecessor, Ibikunle Amosun, had established MAUSTECH the new polytechnic in Ipokia and constituted management as well as Governing Councils for the institutions. However, the institutions had been bogged down by controversy and consequently did not take off.
The governor said the review committee was expected to recommend operational modalities for these institutions after interfacing with stakeholders in the education sector.
