The Federal Government has given approval for the establishment of a second campus of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, in Egbema, Ohaji/Egbema Council, Imo State.
The institution Rector, Dr. Michael Arimanwa, said President Muhammadu Buhari granted the approval in a letter dated January 12, 2023.
According to the rector, the second campus is a finished project with state-of-the-art facilities and was originally built as a modern skill acquisition center by the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs. The campus is said to have modern classrooms, workshops, hostels, staff quarters, an auditorium, and a sports complex, among others.
The Rector noted that the second campus is expected to contribute to the expansion of the institution and accommodate disciplines that are over 80 percent practical-oriented.
President Mohammadu Buhari is expected to perform the formal handover ceremony of the second campus in the coming month.
