The Head of Directorate of the Public Affairs unit of the institution, Mrs. Uredo Omale revealed this on Monday in Lokoja.

She quoted the state governor to have hinged the Rector’s reappointment for another four years on his developmental stride in the polytechnic.

“The re-apportionment according to the governor was due to Ogbo’superlative performance as Rector of the institution over the last four years.”

Reacting to his reapportionment on Monday, Ogbo thanked the Governor for acknowledging his modest contributions to the growth of the institution.

He also eulogized the immediate past Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, for bringing him on board as Acting Rector after which the appointment was confirmed in 2021.

The Rector also thanked the Governing Council, Academic Board, Management, staff and students of the institution for the invaluable support that assisted in the transformation of Polytechnic this far.

“I vow to put in much more efforts in my second term to strengthen the positive visibility of the institution.”

It would be recalled that since coming on board as Rector of the Polytechnic, Prof. Usman has radically transformed the institution as reflected in massive infrastructure improvement, security of lives and properties, full accreditation of programmes stagnated for years, administrative reforms, restoration of discipline, general quality assurance, amongst others.”
