The Redeemer’s College of Technology and Management, Mowe, Ogun State, has urged The Guardian to partner with the institution in providing opportunities for their students to gain experience as interns during industrial training exercise.

Rector of the institution, Dr. Stella Mofunanya, made the call yesterday when she led members of her management team on a courtesy visit to the newspaper’s head office in Lagos.

She said: “We have come to solicit for support and partnership so that you can grant us access to enable our students come here. There are many newspaper companies, but The Guardian has been there for long, rugged, still valuable and very important. It is a newspaper that I love to read all the time. We are the management team. That is basically the reason we are here so that our students can come here and learn from your wealth of experience.”

The rector said the polytechnic was not relenting in its effort to scale up learning and turn out students that will be self-reliant.

Mofunanya noted that the institution was the first school in the country to come up with wellness centre, a clinic where they preach healthy living.

According to her, the school believes in healthy living and consumption of Nigerian food instead of Nigerians getting their system mixed up with foreign foods.

Responding, the Editor of The Guardian, Mr. Alabi Williams, welcomed the team, saying The Guardian is an education-friendly paper that pays close attention to what is happening in the school environment.

“We can all look forward to a society that we can be proud of if students are well-trained and brought up, because at the end of the day, people will come out of these institutions to succeed us. And if the environment of grooming them is not conducive, what will come out will not be good.

“It is a welcome development that your polytechnic is carving a niche for itself. I just want to plead with you to continue to stay with those technical aspects for which the polytechnic is designed, so that you don’t dilute it with so many unrelated courses. If it is 50 students you graduate, everybody would be proud that they are going to do well,” he said.

The Editor, therefore, promised that the newspaper would partner with the institution and accommodate their interns depending on available spaces.

The team included the Deputy Rector, Dr. Timothy Olaniyan; Director, Internal Quality Assurance, Mrs. Christianah Yetunde Alonge; Dean, Students Affairs, Mr. Enamudu Gabriel and Director, Academic Planning, Adebayo Felix.
