Sam Adeyemi Loses…As K-Sticks Resigns From Daystar

  1. The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has accused successive governments in Nigeria of formulating policies that are antithetical to polytechnic education.

    ASUP added that there is no technical intent in the delivery of polytechnic education in the
    country.

    National President of the union, Chibuzo Asomugha, said this during the 81st National
    Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union hosted by the Federal Polytechnic, Offa (FEPOFFA), Kwara State.

    He, therefore, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to review, on a
    stakeholders’ platform, the present state of Nigerian polytechnics.

    He said that Buhari should allow the practitioners and
    all stakeholders to evolve a model that can fit into contemporary times, especially in meeting up
    with global standards.

    He said: “There is no understanding of what we really want polytechnic education to be. We have deviated from the original vision. There is no focus. There is hardly any technical intent in the delivery of polytechnic education and we must return to the basics. This dovetails into what happens in the wider economy, in the industries and workplace.

    “There is no contact between the industries and the schools, because of that hiatus it is not coordinating.

    It is like we are just producing polytechnic graduates without actually being able to exactly know
    where they will fit in.”

    On the discrimination between university and polytechnic graduates, Asomugha urged the President to fulfil his campaign promise to “look at the issue of discrimination against HND graduates.”

    He said: “Thousands of Nigerians are seeking tertiary education in this sector and the system is structured
    in such a way that already by making that choice they are
    placed as not meeting up to the standard of another sub-sector.
    It is better government looks at these issues completely.

    “Paucity in funding eventually derives from the perception of polytechnic education in the minds of policy makers. When you don’t consider that a system is serious enough then you don’t give it serious consideration in fund. Even in Tertiary Education Fund (TEDFUND) you find out that there is lopsidedness among the three sub-sectors that participate.

    “The polytechnics are clearly disadvantaged. We tasked the past government to monitor its funding
    of the sector. Don’t just throw money in a system and then go
    and write in the papers that you are funding such system.
