***Rector cites justice, fairness, inclusiveness as watchwords
The Kogi State Chapter of the Jama’atu Nasir’l Islam (JNI) has praised the resourcefulness of the leadership of Kogi State Polytechnic which has led to positive revolution in the institution.
The body which was in the Polytechnic on a courtesy visit to the Rector, Dr Salisu O. Usman, in his Office on Thursday, 25th of March, 2021, noted that the Rector’s performance has placed the Polytechnic among the best in the country.
Led by its State Chairman, Ambassador Usman Bello, and Secretary, Alhaji Isa Adeboye, the Chapter stressed that such performance informed their decision to visit him and pray God to guard, guide and bless him with more wisdom to lead the institution to higher heights.
The JNI leadership further described the Polytechnic as a centre of excellence in view of the ongoing positive revolution and charged the Rector to always be fair to all in his dealings.
It therefore promised support and guidance for Dr Usman, just as they prayed for more knowledge, wisdom and direction for the Rector.
In his response, the Rector appreciated the JNI for the visit and acknowledgement of the modest gains recorded and expressed the desire to do more to uplift the institution.
He stressed that Management of the institution has made remarkable efforts to instill justice in all its affairs, and such have yielded positive results.
He added that the rapid development witnessed in the institution was as a result of transparency, fairness in the leadership direction.
Dr Usman noted that the school under his watch has made life easy for students by putting an end to lecturers forcing students to buy text books and also enforcing ‘no school fees, no exam’ approach for students to comply.
While reassuring the JNI to always be on the side of justice and promote peaceful coexistence among religious bodies on campus, Dr Usman charged the body to join hands with the Polytechnic to persuade various Islamic groups in fostering unity among themselves.
Other members of the JNI on the visit to the Rector include the Financial Secretary, Mallam Zubair Abubakar, the Administrative Secretary, Imam Danjuma Khalid and the Chairman of Dahwah for the JNI, Ustaz Usman Taoheed.
