The National Secretary, Kaduna Polytechnic Alumni Association, Aminu Haruna Maipompo, has appealed to the federal government to shelve the plans of selling some of the lands hosting the staff quarters of the institution.
The National Secretary of the Association, who is also the National Organizing Secretary of the Northern Youth Council of Nigeria, observed that selling the quarters would affect the reputation of the school.
“Kaduna Polytechnic’s name and reputation are not just in the number of students and staff it has, but also in the number of assets particularly staff quarters spread across strategic locations it has in Kaduna state.” He said.
The statement explained that the assets are among what makes Kaduna Polytechnic stand tall among other tertiary institutions across the entire country.
He cautioned, “Kaduna Polytechnic is expanding in staff strength every day, so there is a need to build more staff quarters for the institution, not mortgaging the few ones it has.”
He said it was disheartening to see the few remaining legacies of the late founding father of Kaduna Polytechnic, the Sardauna of Sokoto traded off.
“I wish to call on the Northern Governors Forum, Arewa Consultative Forum, Northern Elders Forum and all well-meaning sons and daughters of the North to please intervene in the said plan,” he pleaded.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
