Accreditation: Oyo Govt, Ibarapa Poly Ruined Our Future, Students Allege

Over 1,000 students who completed their HND program in five different departments of the Ibarapa Polytechnic, Erica, two years ago alleged that the institution admitted them when they knew there was no accreditation for their courses.
One of the affected students who spoke on behalf of others, Onubi Samuel Everest, said he was subjected to several judicial panels by the management of the institution while his course of study lasted.
Everest said many parents of the affected students are still in shock of what could have led to non-existent of result of their children, after studying for years in the school.
Speaking on their ordeal, Everest said; “the whole problem started two years ago when the former Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi considered the Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa for autonomy.
“The management admitted us for High National Diploma knowing that many of their courses were not accredited.
“The school told us that National Board for Technical Education and the management of the institution had agreed on accreditation before the completion of our first session but it was a lie.
“Management advertised sales of its forms and we were lured into it. We purchased the forms and started the programme but they later told us after completion of our programmes that we were admitted in error.”
On the number of the students affected, “Everest said;”we are more than 1,000 students from five departments. The most annoying thing about it is that we have not had any information from the management since we have completed our programmes, two years ago.”
But the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. Gbenga Olayiwola said the state government has taken over the matter.
According to Olayiwola, “the state government has set up a panel of inquiry to look into the matter and their findings would be made known soon.”
