Newly established Federal Polytechnic Monguno to commence academic session in October this year

By Madu Mohammed, Maidugri


The newly established federal Polytechnic Monguno is to commence academic session come October, this year.

The Rector of the Polytechnic, Prof. Garba Mohammed Ngala who led the management of the institution on a courtesy call to Governor Babagana Zulum at the Government House, Maiduguri yesterday revealed that the Polytechnic plans to start enrollment of students by October, 2021.

Professor Garba reiterated the commitment of the polytechnic’s management towards the success of the tertiary institution for the development of Borno State.

Responding, the Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana approved the release of N100m to assist in the take off of Federal Polytechnic, Monguno.

The governor explained that of the N100m, he has already released the sum of N50m to Borno Ministry of Higher Education for rehabilitation works at a proposed temporary site of the polytechnic, provided by the state government, adding that he is releasing additional N50m to the polytechnic management to supplement commencement of their operations.

He said his administration was committed to complimenting the efforts of the federal government in ensuring that all necessary requirements are met for the Polytechnic to function.

It would be recalled that Governor Zulum had, in January, 2021, led a delegation of national assembly members to the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, in Abuja to convey the state’s gratitude soon after President Buhari gave approval for Borno to have a federal polytechnic as it is in most of the 36 states which have federal universities, polytechnics and colleges.

Borno State had since its creation in 1976, been without a federal polytechnic and a federal college of education despite even when states created in later years, have been with both federal institutions. Governor Zulum, since 2019, deployed intense lobbying and networking with federal education stakeholders towards ensuring Borno gets federal polytechnic and college of education to add to the federal government owned University of Maiduguri.
