10,000 apply to Offa Poly for admission


About 10,000 candidates applied for admission at the Federal Polytechnic, Offa, Kwara state during the 2017 and 2018 academic session, Rector of the school, Dr Lateef Olatunji has said.
He added however that only 3,624 got admission.
The Rector said this in Offa, at the 2017/2018 matriculation ceremony, saying “let me proudly inform you that you are fortunate to be admitted into this polytechnic.”
“For 2017/2018 academic session, a total number of 5,145 applied for higher national diploma (HND) admission, 1710 were admitted. Also 4,462 applicants applied for National Diploma (ND) through Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) while only 1,914 were admitted.
“This, I hope should be the basis for you all to justify your admission be dedicating yourselves to the already established tradition of academic excellence and professional discipline which the polytechnic is known for.”
Dr Olatunji continued: “My dear students, your presence here is a testimony of your ambition and determination to become somebody important in future and from this day forth, you shall be ambassador of this polytechnic.
“You need to continually remember that the distance between today’s ceremony and convocation is not wide and it is important that the journey ends successfully. For this to happen, you need to be regular in attendance at lectures, carry out all your assignments, shun deviant behavior and other vices that can expose you and others to dangers.
“The Polytechnic has zero tolerance for cultism, any form of hooliganism, cheating during examination or continuous assessment, stealing, physical and sexual assault. I need to further advise you to show respect to your colleagues and staff in the polytechnic to make your stay here fruitful and productive. Be modest and decent in your dressing and approach to issues”
