The Rector made the announcement during a press conference to announce the Polytechnic’s 27th combined convocation, which will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 17.
“In furtherance of the Management’s efforts to sanitise the system and further enhance the integrity of the institution and its certificate, the Polytechnic’s Certificate is now being printed abroad by reputable printing outfit.
“It contains at least eight hidden security features to protect its integrity and make it forge proof.
“This will assist in providing a lasting solution to the issue of certificate racketeering in the Polytechnic by fraudulent elements.
“The first set of the certificates was issued to 2019/2020 set of graduates of the Polytechnic,” Muhammed said.
While reading out the Polytechnic’s accomplishments over the last two years, the Rector stated that in order to maximize employee efficiency, attention was paid to their health through free medical screenings.
“This was basically to evaluate health status of the Polytechnic’s work force and provide preventive counselling and interventions where necessary,” Muhammed said.
Dr Muhammed also stated that the Polytechnic had resurrected the Interim Joint Matriculation Board in order to continue the Management’s attempts to restore the institution’s lost glory.
He stated that the IJMB program had been stopped for more than a decade and would resume in the Academic Session 2021/2022.
The Management has also received a Kwara Poly Radio frequency license from the National Broadcasting Commission, according to the Rector.
“We have procured the transmitter, Dipole Antennae and construction of Mast to enable the Station to commence operations soon.
“This is one of the key requirements for HND accreditation,” Muhammed explained.
He said that the Governor of Kwara, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, would launch a 2,000-capacity bottled water production project that had already been finished on Wednesday.
He went on to say that the institution was waiting for a NAFDAC number for the product before starting production.
The Rector noted that Gov. AbdulRazaq rejected to have an auditorium named after him when his government built it, but instead directed that it be named after the project’s founder, Rear Admiral Muhammed Lawal.
