MAPOLY rector urges matriculating students to contribute to Nigeria’s well-being

NUC approves upgrading of MAPOLY to University of Technology

Focus, commitment and discipline have been described as traits needed alongside academic potentials to make a success out of a chosen career.

The rector, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, Professor Oludele Itiola stated this at the matriculation and oath-taking ceremony of the newly-admitted students of the institution for the 2016/2017 academic session held inside the OGD Auditorium on its campus

Professor Itiola, who said MAPOLY had already begun the process of becoming a degree-awarding institution, reiterated the determination of the polytechnic to create an enabling environment for effective teaching and learning through lecture spaces and 24-hour electricity supply.

He challenged the students to contribute to national development through  the knowledge obtained from their chosen career, as their alumni did, saying that some of their colleagues at the National Diploma level had made the institution proud through  their innovation and creativity.
“Your colleagues, who were here before you have lent credence to our exploits in national development, in such areas as Communication, Engineering,  Sciences, Business management and the Environment.
“Besides being trail blazers in professional examinations such as ICAN, APCON, etc or representing  Nigeria at international competitions and programmes, your colleagues at the National Diploma level have produced Generating sets not running on fuel, Kerosene and petrol powered generator, Electronic Ballot Box, Solar Power  Street Lights, Tricycles, and other interesting products  as their contributions. What will be your contributions?” he added.

In their separate speeches, the Admission Officer, Mr Olufunsho Kusimo and the Guidance Counsellor, Dr. Rotimi Olukoya,  advised them to complete their registration on time and obey the rules and regulations to avoid being rusticated.

The matriculation oath was conducted by the school’s legal adviser, Barrister Lanre Ojo, on 2,850 full-time and part-time Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) students.
