The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP), South West Zone, has reportedly frowned on the character of the governors over the alleged poor funding of polytechnics in their states.
According to Punch News, SSANIP, in a statement signed by its Zonal Coordinator, Banjo Ogunsipe and Zonal Secretary, Sunday Komolafe, said the body was worried about the poor funding of polytechnics and tertiary institutions in general.
“We have therefore resolved to bring the issue of poor funding to the front burner so as to chart a progressive course for the sustenance of polytechnic education in the South West.
“We condemn, in strong terms, the suspension of the activities of the Ibarapa Polytechnic, Eruwa chapter of the association because the polytechnic’s management lacked the power to either suspend or proscribe the activities of the chapter since it was established by law.
“We, therefore, call for the immediate reinstatement of the chapter’s executive to keep us from taking drastic actions,” the association stated.
