Offa Poly rectorship: Fed Govt orders probe into allegation against candidate
Minister of Education Adamu Adamu has directed fresh probe into allegations against one of the three candidates eyeing the rectorship of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa in Kwara State.
The three candidates already shortlisted for the job are Dr. Ayo Olaosebikan, Mr. Eghe Igbinehi and Dr. Lateef Olatunji.
The candidates were in February this year screened and interviewed by both the school and in Abuja by the Ministry of Education, the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and the Department of State Services (DSS).
Adamu's directive, it was gathered, was based on a petition forwarded to the minister by a group opposed to the candidature of one of the three.
Sources revealed that the allegations came up last week as the Federal Government was about to name a substantive head for the institution.
The development, it was learnt, forced the minister to direct the announcement of the approval to be put on hold and ordered an investigation into the allegations. The DSS was asked to do a thorough probe of the issues raised in the petition, particularly as it bothers on security.
The minister was said to have called for the record of the three candidates. After verifying them, directed the polytechnic management to undertake a probe of the allegations and report back to the ministry this week.
Spokesperson of the institution, Mr. Ladi Badmus, said he was not aware of such development and asked for time to confirm from his boss. Also, Registrar of the Polytechnic, AbdulHameed Raji, did not respond to calls or text messages sent to him to confirm the story.
