The Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnic (ASUP), has accused the Ogun State government, National Board of Technical Education (NBTE) and Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) for conspiring against the existence of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta.

Mr. Olawale Omobaorun, ASUP Zonal Coordinator Zone C made the allegation on Monday during a press conference held at ASUP secretariat of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

He described as deceitful the accreditation of courses at the institution by NBTE without requisite classroom and facilities, saying this poses a threat to the existence of MAPOLY, saying that the visit by the regulatory body was basically for inspection and to advise the state government on the requirements for the take-off of the Polytechnic in Ipokia.


Omobaorun claimed that ASUP MAPOLY chapter had written to NBTE through its national body to re-confirm the accreditation approval as announced by Ogun State government.

He added that failure of NBTE to debunk or affirm the state government announcement has endangered the future of both the academic and non-academic staff of the institution thereby making the future of the institution uncertain.


Disappointed at the policy and posture of the state government on the institution, Comrade Omobaorun submitted that the state government had not been alive to her responsibility of salary payment and capital project development of the institution.

He alleged that the government owed N76million part-time allowance, 67 per cent of 10 months’ salary and 100 per cent of the last four months salary, saying this had forced the union to embark on “work-to-rule” strike.

It would be recalled that the union had in November embarked on similar strike due to the failure of the government to yield to their demands on ways to deal with controversies surrounding the conversion of the 38-year-old polytechnic to a university.

The government also established Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia, a decision which had created rancour between the ASUP and the state government.

“Since JAMB knew that students were to be admitted at the new polytechnic, Ipokia, why did JAMB advertise MAPOLY in its 2018/2019 admission exercise despite its denial of student’s admission to MAPOLY during 2017/2018 session.

“ASUP challenge Ogun state government and NBTE to make known to the public the second page of the purported accreditation letter issued to the government by NBTE or technically reversed her move,” he said.

He called on well-meaning Nigerian’s to prevail on the government to do the needful by restoring the lost glory of MAPOLY.
