Dr. Oyedokun took the opportunity to express gratitude to the alumni chapters in Rivers, Delta, FCT, Lagos, Oyo, Ekiti, and Europe for their financial support.

He also appealed to those members who had made promises to redeem their pledges. While the institution has acknowledged the receipt of the N5 million, Dr. Oyedokun believes that the entire world must be aware of the challenges faced by the Polytechnic.

The President of the alumni association called on all levels of government to recognize the importance of polytechnic education as a crucial pathway to progress and development for the country.

He stressed that the recent damage caused by the rainstorm, which runs into millions of Naira, highlights the urgent need for government intervention.

He passionately appealed to the Federal and State Governments to prioritize equipping the institutions to ensure sound and practical education.
