This story was sent in by Charles Okafor student of federal Polytechnic Nekede

An appraisal of problems of technological breakthrough of this noble country is very essential, which will underline the organic lineage between the problems confronting polytechnic education section and the general problems of unemployment, human development and over all social economic development.

The mission of polytechnic education is to produce knowledgeable, innovation graduates , worthy in character and learning through effective technology, research and public service for the technological advancement for this country, but the neglect of the sector by the government and lopsided education policies that weighed heavily against polytechnics are ascribed largely to depreciation in qualitative, encourage and productive polytechnic education in Nigeria, which also connects in several ways to socio economic deprivation.

The unitary system of higher education operation in its country is totally condemnable, it is completely unfavourable to polytechnic education and negate the three (3) cardinal principle of Nigeria as a developing country.

It is extremely important for us to both human material resources at our disposal to accord polytechnic education attention and be treated as priority based on the nation’s quest for technological development. 

The present situation of polytechnics mimics the desired pursuit and search for a suitable economy to replace the country’s dependency on foreign expatiates for its industrial and technological sector.

To all polytechnic students, we must remain steadfast in our roles as leaders of this brighter tomorrow in the promotion of the well being of all. Let all brave hear rise and fight for emancipation of polytechnic education for the betterment of this country.

Long live polytechnic education

Long live federal polytechnic Nekede Owerri
