President Muhammadu Buhari, has been commended for his continued support in bringing the Federal Polytechnic Nasarawa to its present state.
Rector of the institution, Abdullahi Alhsssan Ahmed, gave the commendation during the 9th combined convocation, which had in attendance dignitaries from different parts of the world.
Ahmed, said the institution remains grateful to the President and hoped that the institution will continue to get more support through the various interventions of TETFUND.
He, however, decried inadequate funding which had slowed down activities in certain key areas of operations, including the procurement of equipments and provision of highly-needed classrooms, laboratories, studios, staff offices among others.
“While we passionately appeal to the federal government to assist the polytechnic in these areas, we are equally soliciting for help from well meaning individuals, organisations and Corporate bodies to assist us, through the Private Public Partnership Policy of the Federal Government.”
Four distinguished Nigerians who have excelled in their various fields of endeavour were conferred with the Fellowship of the Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa, (FFPN).
The awardees were: Gov Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa state, Alhaji Buba Ahmed, former minister of Sports, High Chief Ikechi Emenike, a philanthropist and Sen. Abubakar Sodangi.
