It can be recalled that in the recent past,the Institution’s image is smeared with the crisis of unaccredited and outdated accreditation.
Now, the Polytechnic Community is sighing a big relief. The Staff, the host Community and indeed the students and all the stakeholders are hopeful of a desirable accreditation exercise.
