Rector of Kwara State Polytechnic, Dr. Abdul Jimoh Muhammed has appealed to the state government to improve the funding for the institution.
The administrator complained that the Polytechnic usually faces financial difficulties during accreditation and re-accreditation of its academic programmes and renovation of the old facilities.
Jimoh made this disclosure during a press briefing in Ilorin on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a total of 8,350 students will bid the state-owned school a farewell on Thursday, at the 29th convocation ceremony.
The rector further appealed to the state government to place a caveat on the indiscriminate sale of the institution’s land by land grabbers.
He also maintained that the school is surrounded by illegal buildings that are capable of undermining the security architecture of the school.
Jimoh said the institution is collaborating with various security outfits to ensure that the institution is not under security threat, following encroachment on its land.
He, therefore, charged the government, the alumni association of the institution, and philanthropists to come to the rescue of the school by constructing a security fence around the polytechnic.
