Barely a week that the prestigious Abia State Polytechnic Aba lost her accreditation, the government of Abia State has warned people it described as "mushroom political Parties and their infantile Candidates" against converting the recent loss of accreditation of the state-owned tertiary institution into a political tool.



Naijacrawl reports.

The state government government stated that she has spent over 7 billion naira on the said institution within 7 years, and denied any infraction on the withdrawal of the accreditation of the Polytechnic by NBTE.

Barr. Eze Chikamnayo, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy also blamed the ineptitude of past management of the institution for the loss of accreditation.

In a statement on Friday, he said, "Government has been alerted of the unpatriotic activities and attempts by some mushroom political Parties and their infantile Candidates to convert the unfortunate, unwarranted and unprecedented action of the National Board of Technical Education, NBTE against our illustrious Institution, the Abia Polytechnic Aba, into a political instrument and basis for rascalism.

"For the avoidance of doubt, the recent action of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) against Abia State Polytechnic Aba, was not occasioned by Government's inability to fulfil it's financial obligations to the institution but by the dysfunctionality and ineptitude of successive Boards and Managements that have bedeviled Abia Poly.

"Specifically,,between 2015 and now, over a period of about 78 months of the lifespan of Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu's visionary and education-friendly administration, a total of over Seven Billion, one hundred and forty-seven million have been remitted to Abia Poly by Government. This does not include the monies collected as School Fees, Caution Fees, sundry levies and other internal revenue generated by the School and expended without any recourse whatsoever to the State Government .
