The attention of the Governing Council, kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, has been drawn to a discrediting story going round the town tagged “Illegal Recruitment of Staff by Kwara State Polytechnic”
The Council wishes to disclaim this discrediting news about the institution, stating that all actions taken by it are legitimate and in accordance with the Polytechnic Law.
According to Part III, Sections 10 (a) of the Kwara State Polytechnic Law, CAP. S12 No. 4 of 2006, the Governing Council is “responsible for the general management of the affairs of the Polytechnic and in particular the control of the property and the finances of the Polytechnic and shall also have power to do anything which in its opinion is calculated to facilitate the carrying out of the purpose of the Polytechnic and promote its best interest”.
Furthermore, Part III, Section 10A.(1)(c) of the same law under reference empowers the Council to “appoint, promote, dismiss and exercise disciplinary control over the staff of the Polytechnic”.
Therefore, the Council wishes to state categorically that all appointments, promotions, increment in salary and conversion of appointment were all done in line with the extant law of the Institution as quoted above. Thus, they cannot be reversed as being insinuated.
