We now print our certificates abroad — Kwara State Poly Rector

The Rector of Kwara State Polytechnic, Dr. Abdul Muhammed, has said the institution now prints its certificates from overseas.

The Rector revealed this during a news conference on Tuesday to herald the school’s 27th combined convocation.

It is scheduled for November 17, 2021.

Muhammed said: “In furtherance of the Management’s efforts to sanitise the system and further enhance the integrity of the institution and its certificate, the Polytechnic’s Certificate is now being printed abroad by reputable printing outfit.

“It contains at least eight hidden security features to protect its integrity and make it forge proof.

“This will assist in providing a lasting solution to the issue of certificate racketeering in the Polytechnic by fraudulent elements.

“The first set of the certificates was issued to 2019/2020 set of graduates of the Polytechnic.”

The Rector, while reading out the achievements of the Polytechnic in the past two years, said in order to optimise productivity of staff, attention was paid to their health through free medical screening for them.

Muhammed said: “This was basically to evaluate health status of the Polytechnic’s work force and provide preventive counselling and interventions where necessary.”

Dr. Muhammed also explained that in continuation of the Management’s efforts to restore the lost glory of the institution, the Polytechnic had resuscitated the Interim Joint Matriculation Board programme.

He said the IJMB programme was suspended for more than a decade and kicked off again in the 2021/2022 Academic Session.

The Rector revealed that the Management has also obtained Kwara Poly Radio frequency licence from the National Broadcasting Commission.

He said: “We have procured the transmitter, Dipol Antennae and construction of mast to enable the station to commence operations soon.

“This is one of the key requirements for HND accreditation,” Muhammed explained.

He explained that the 2,000-capacity bottled water production project, which was already completed, would be inaugurated by the State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Wednesday.

He added that the institution was awaiting the registration number of the National Agency for Food Administration and Drug and Control for the product before commencement of production.

The Rector explained that AbdulRazaq declined the proposed naming of an auditorium his administration completed after him, but directed that it should be named after the initiator of the project, Rear Admiral Muhammed Lawal.
