Rector assures students of continuous academic standard
Rector of the Federal Polytechnic Bida, Dr. Abubakar Dzukogi has reiterated his administration’s commitment to ensuring that certificates issued by the Polytechnic meet the highest standards of global academic integrity.
He gave the assurance at the recent matriculation exercise for 2016/2017 academic session, held at the school’s auditorium.
Dzukogi said as part of efforts to ensure academic standards, current academic programmes would be strength while new ones are added.
He noted that his administration had prioritized staff and students welfare as part of such efforts, adding that it had also embarked on full scale overhaul of infrastructure in the Polytechnic.
“Undoubtedly, the promotion of students and staff welfare is critical to their productivity, hence I have made it one of my seven point agenda.
Accordingly, within the limits of available resources, we have also embarked on full scale renovation, rehabilitation and regular maintenance of existing physical structures within the Polytechnic,” the Rector explained.
He also promised that his administration would continue to put necessary facilities in place to ensure that the Polytechnic was conducive to teaching and learning.
While congratulating the matriculating students on their admission into the Polytechnic, Dzukogi warned them against engaging in anti-social vices on campus. He said his administration was fully committed to ensuring a crime free Polytechnic community.
“I wish to reiterate that the federal government in 1979 prohibited secret societies and any student found to be involved in any activities of any secret society here would be summarily expelled,” the Rector warned.
