Abiodun promises to improve people’s living condition
He said the state was not averse to new and better ideas that could boost the fortunes of the state through education.
The governor stated this at the weekend during the third convocation ceremony of The Gateway (ICT) Polytechnic, Saapade, Ogun State.
He said that his administration had been connecting with individuals and corporate bodies to join hands with the state in building a prosperous future.
The governor noted that the end result of meaningful collaboration between government, individuals and corporate bodies would be an overall development of the economy of the state, which he said, would also translate to individual prosperity of the citizens.
Abiodun, therefore, appealed to well-meaning Nigerians, corporate bodies and other social organisations to either “adopt a school or adopt a primary healthcare centre”, saying that adopting one of the two would be a way of either giving back to the society that made them or discharging their corporate social responsibility to their various host-communities.
The governor, who urged the graduating students to strive hard and contribute to the development of the country and humanity, also announced the decision of the state government to offer N50,000 and give priority for employment to the best graduating student in each department, adding that the best overall best student in the Higher National Diploma and National Diploma programmes, Miss Adio Opeyemi Deborah from the Department of Business Administration, with 3.86 Cumulative Gross Product Aggregate and Ejidele Oyinlola Esther from the Department of Science Laboratory Technology, will be offered automatic employment and N150,000 each.
“We will be offering the best student in each department N50,000 each. We will also give them priority employment consideration. The two overall best graduating students in the National Diploma and Higher National Diploma will be given automatic employment and N150,000,” he said.
The governor, while acknowledging the managerial exploits demonstrated by the Rector and his team, said that he had been a dependable partner, assuring the school community of the state government’s support.
He also commended the traditional institution, community leaders, political elders and the good people of Isara-Remo, Ode-Remo and Ipara-Remo for the blissful co-existence with the polytechnic community.
In his convocation address, the Rector, Dr. Isaiah Kolawole Oyeyinka, said that the institution, which was established in 2006 to produce highly-skilled technical manpower equipped with proficiencies in Information Communication Technology (ICT), had grown steadily, noting that the institution has embarked on massive infrastructural development and environmental upgrade.
