The Staff Union of Polytechnics has alleged that the embezzlement of TETfund monies by the former management of the institution prevented it from accessing further support.

Comrade Sylvester Aku, Chairman of the union, who stated this while briefing newsmen on Wednesday, in Lafia, stressed that the activities of the former management denied the institution further access to TETfund grants, thereby preventing rapid infrastructural and human capital development in the institution.

He Said TETfund has also placed an embargo on sponsoring further projects in the institution due to the embezzlement of monies for projects in the past,” the chairman said.

Aku used the medium to commend the state governor, Abdullahi Sule, for his efforts towards the upliftment of the institution, especially by appointing the management of the institution recently, based on merit, for the first time since the institution was established in 2000.

He also lauded the governor for fencing the polytechnic and for his prompt visit to the institution, to assess the level of damage after the March 11 students’ unrest.

The union chairman, however, called on the governor to ensure full implementation of the whitepaper of a committee that investigated the activities of the former management of the institution.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the state government, during the administration of the immediate past governor, constituted a panel to investigate the activities of the former management of the institution and had since Jan.2019 submitted its report.
