The authority of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku has affirmed its commitment to the production of quality students and in-depth scholarship to fire the engine of growth and progress of Delta State in particular and Nigeria in general.
The Polytechnic further clarified zero tolerance on examination malpractices on the part of students and lecturers who find passion in extorting students for marks.
In a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the institution, Mr Manfred Oyibogbeye, the authority warned distractors of the school and their collaborators not to tarnish the good image of the Rector and other senior management staff toiling day and night for the progess of the school.
The statement made available to Blank NEWS Online partly read thus:`
“The Polytechnic management which has since established a reputation for good and progressive leadership cannot be part of or encourage any group or process that wants to impede the progress of students and staff. The Rector is a woman of high integrity, respect, admiration, well learned and a seasoned administrator with a penchant for academic standard. Her efforts cannot be rubbished by any reporter or news medium unfit to carry out investigation and or chose to be faceless.”
The Polytechnic maintained that there was no iota of truth in the online medium report that accused lecturers of extortion, collection of illegal fees and money to supervise students projects.
The statement wondered why the reporter failed to get the reaction of the school authority before rushing to publish, which showed that the reporter was hired to do bad job to tarnish the reputation of the school.
The school authority said that at no time did the management receive any complaint or written report on the said allegations and that for the past three years, the school management team has stood on the side of educational probity and scholarship without compromise.
The statement therefore stated “that the publication is a cheap lie and no doubt the reporters had been bought by some detractors to embarrass the institution. The Polytechnic management which has since established a reputation for good and progressive leadership cannot be part of any group or process that want to impede the progress of students.
The polytechnic therefore advised reporters and other media workers who have issues to clarify with the school to always contact the Public Relations department as the school runs an open door policy.
