 The Federal Polytechnic Ilaro (FPI),  Ogun, has said that over 4, 000 students would be graduating at its 19th convocation ceremony which would take place on Wednesday. 

Arch. Olusegun Aluko ,  the  Rector of the Institution , disclosed this during a press conference in commemoration of the institutions 40th anniversary and 19th convocation ceremony, held at the school premises in Ilaro .

Aluko explained that 40 of the students would be graduating with distinctions , saying that it cut across both Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) 

The rector added that the school had started moves at ensuring that its products become entrepreneurs after leaving school, saying that the era of waiting for white collar job was over. 

He added that the school was aware of the challenges of unemployment in the country,  saying that it was making efforts to ensure that its students performed effectively when they get to labour market. 

He noted that the polythecnic remains  one of the institutions that  was fully prepared to change the narrative of the country .

The rector explained that the polytechnic had not been lagging behind in its primary mandate which was research and development. 

“Through  the Manufacturers  Association of Nigeria (MAN),  we recently  exhibited some of the equipment  that we invented. We have supplied many companies  some of our equipment  and some other companies  are still ordering  for them. 

“We are also working to make sure that  we impact  our environment,   that is why  we have created an agricultural  village  and we are trying to see how we can add value  to our agricultural  sector. 

“We are the only  polytechnic  in Nigeria  to offer  courses in Cement  technology. We have collaboration  with Dangote Cement Company.

“The company  has approved  equipment  worth N220million  for the department of Cement technology   , so we are waiting  for the equipment,” he said. 

He added that there would be conferment of Fellowship Awards on  Alaafin of Oyo,  Oba Lamidi Adeyemi,  Paramount Ruler of Yewa Land , Oba Kehinde Olugbenle and a  renowned Dentist, S. A. J  Ibikunle.

He,  however,  explained that poor supply of public electricity had been a major challenge being confronted on campus, especially during examination.

The rector appealed to the Federal government to assist the institution in the provision of stable electricity,  saying it would assist in boosting the performance of the undergraduates.
