Staff and students of Kwara State Polytechnic have kicked against the appointment of the institution’s rector and registrar, claiming that the due process was not followed.

In a statement by Mr. Jubril Abdullahi, a lecturer, on behalf of the expressed dissatisfaction over the process of appointing the rector and registrar.

The statement pointed out that the advertisements and shortlisting of candidates were intentionally done to edge out other qualified candidates in the polytechnic.

 “We discovered that the advertisements were done to disallow qualified members of staff of our institution from applying for the positions,” Abdullahi said.

He added that external candidates who applied for the jobs were shortlisted more than a week before the interview, alleging that those in the school who were later allowed, were given only 24 hours to apply.

Abdhullahi, who condemned the recruitment process, said it was biased and tilted toward favouring a particular candidate by the advertiser.

“It was on this shady recruitment method that the former Governor Abdufatah Ahmed declined his assent to the initial appointment which led to the dissolution of the governing council,” he said.
He said the former governor discovered that the process was against the National Board of Technical Education (NBTC) guidelines and traditions of the school.

 Abdullahi, however, called on Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and Kwara State House of Assembly to disregard the illegal appointment which was done on May 22 at 10 pm.

He described the appointment as illegal because the Governing Council and State Executive of the school had already been dissolved, which were supposed to transmit the reports to the incumbent governor.

He said had no doubt that the governor would correct the wrong of such fraudulent process to ensure there was peace in the polytechnic.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the staff and students of the school had on May 19 threatened to stage a peaceful protest over the appointment of a new rector without following due process.

Comrade Kayode Rafiu, the speaking on behalf of the students, said the protest became necessary due to alleged “shabby process in the appointment of a new rector for the institution”.

Reacting to the allegation, Mr. Abdulkadir Yunus, the Public Relations Officer, Kwara State Polytechnic said the interviews for appointing the rector and registrar were conducted during the last administration and the processes were transparent.

He said that everything was concluded before the expiration of the last administration and there was no favourite candidate as alleged by the staff.

He said that the registrar had officially resumed about two weeks ago, adding that when the interview was conducted the Rector was not part of the panel.

Yunus debunked the allegation of the rector and the registrar being favoured by the last administration.
