NBTE Lifts Suspension on Engineering Courses in Federal Poly Idah
The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) has lifted the suspension on the Federal Polytechnic, Idah engineering courses.
It will be recalled that NBTE earlier banned the polytechnic from admitting new students for its engineering programmes following the allegation by some students of the institution on SIWES programmes that the polytechnic’s laboratory and workshops were not functioning.
The Deputy Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. S. S Omale, who made this disclosure, said that the nation’s polytechnics’ regulatory body lifted the ban after being satisfied with school’s explanation that the allegation was not true.
He noted that the board had also written a letter to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to allow the polytechnic admitting new students into the department.
The spokesman pointed out that while absolving the institution of any complicity, the board had admonished the management of the polytechnic not to see NBTE as its enemy but as a partner in progress.
