We Didn’t Have Enough Fund To Buy Engineering Materials For Accreditation―Ibarapa Poly Rector

The revelation became necessary following yesterday’s protest by ex-students of the institution who have not been mobilized for the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, two years after graduation.

The students had lamented the the inability of the institution’s management to resolve the issues up till this moment, thus alleging that the management of the institution has mismanaged funds meant for the accreditation of the engineering course of the institution.

Nigerian Tribune quoted the Rector of the institution, Mr. Eyitayo Iyiola, while addressing the protesting students, as saying that the basic cause of the problem is short of fund from the Oyo State government and misinformation from the Faculty of Engineering of the institution.

“The management of the school didn’t have enough fund to buy engineering materials to accredit the engineering courses, and we have been misinformed by the faculty concerning the accreditation.”

Iyiola reiterated that N600 million was proposed by the faculty of engineering for the procurement and upgrading of engineering materials so that the NBTE can come to inspect and accredit the courses.

“Funding and misinformation was the basic cause of this issue, we have meet several times and we keeps on saying the same thing, the issue we are having relies on finance.”

The Rector emphasised that the problem also came from the faculty because the school management were not told that the facilities the engineering department have on ground can not be satisfied by NBTE for the accreditation of the engineering course, noting that NBTE did not say that the school totally failed the accreditation test, but NBTE only said that they needed to upgrade the facilities in the engineering department.

“This problem will be resolve very soon because the National TETFUND has promises us some funds, together with other individual who has showed interest to assist us.”
