The Rector Niger State Polytechnic, Dr. Umar Ahmed Egbako has said the decision to introduce evening programme by the management of the institution is to bridge the gap of carrying capacity allowed by the National Board for Technical Education ( NBTE) for the morning programmes.

“The evening programmes gesture is a unique one because it is designed to bridge the gap of the carrying capacity allowed by NBTE for the morning program.

“In other words, this program affords us another opportunity of transferring what obtains in the morning program to evening without flouting any laws,” he explained in an interview with North Central Trust yesterday.

He said 71 students were matriculated into various courses for the 2018/2019 session of the regular evening programme recently.

“Let me use this medium to thank the management team of Centre for Continuing Education and Training CC &T for once again putting the Polytechnic on a threshold of history by introducing the evening programme,” he said.

He also said plans to establish students’ village under public-private arrangement have reached advance stage.

“The Polytechnic Village will be one of its kinds in the country. We have done our homework well; reached out to various stakeholders and interested partners,” he noted.

He said the proposed village would have necessary facilities such as clinic, good road network, water, electricity, re-creation centres and market among others.

According to him, already the prototype for the proposed village has been designed to guide interested private developers ahead of the commencement of the project.

He said the project, apart from addressing the accommodation problem in the school, would fast track development between Zungeru and Wushishi towns.

He stated the under his administration, 16 lecturers were able to obtain doctorate degrees while 25  are pursuing their doctorate degrees.

Similarly, he said, 105 academic staff are currently pursuing their Masters degrees within and outside Nigeria.

He also disclosed that the Polytechnic had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Federal University of Technology Minna, which  would enable it to run and award Bachelor of Engineering, Computer science, Electrical/Electronics, Urban Planning, Statistics and Estate Management degrees.
