Rector Akanu Ibiam Poly laments theft of school property, crummy jobs and more
The new rector of the Federal Polytechnic in Akanu Ibiam, Unwanna, Afikpo, Ebonyi State, Dr. Felix Attah, yesterday expressed his regret over what he described as massive theft and looting of polytechnic properties , dilapidated buildings and shabby jobs by previous administrations.
Dr. Attah also expressed concern that the institution’s lecture halls, lecture halls, newly inaugurated TETFUND buildings and campus roads are all in very poor condition.
The rector who made the sighting at the institution’s 41st inscription ceremony said the polytechnic’s premises were overrun with weeds that provide a haven for dangerous reptiles and other harmful creatures.
“It is unfortunate that the polytechnic can witness such rot at this stage of its development. Learning facilities are in shambles and our labs and classrooms are pathetic,” he said.
He also observed that polytechnic security personnel owe salaries for nine months, adding that the buildings constructed with taxpayers’ money in the school are in very poor condition.
“The work ethic has been abandoned with discipline being completely destroyed in the school as most staff come to work between 9am and 11am and go home from 3pm,” he noted.
