The Auchi Polytechnic Alumni Association (APAA), on Monday handed over a 200-capacity engineering drawing studio it constructed to the institution.

The facility was inaugurated by the host community’s traditional ruler, Otaru of Auchi, Hairu  Momoh in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State, South-South Nigeria,

The National President of the Association, Victor Okhaimo, while handing over the studio, said that the studio had 14 offices and other state-of-the-art facilities.

Okhaimo said that the facility was part of the association’s contribution to the yearning for more learning spaces in the engineering department of the polytechnic.

“The alumni will continue to promote academic excellence and attract more infrastructure development to the institution.

“Today, we have reached a milestone in our collective desire to promote the growth of the institution, whether as students, graduates or sons of the land.

“In one voice, it is obvious we seek more robust collaboration in the best interest of the polytechnic.

“We see this project as a start to other greater projects and look forward to working together with the management, to ensure the polytechnic becomes the best in the country.

“The management can be rest assured that the alumni would be very willing to continue to be development partners, and support all the growth plans of the school,” he said.

He advised that a maintenance strategy be put in place by the polytechnic to ensure that the facilities served the purpose for which it was built.

The Rector, Dr Sanusi Jimah, commended the association for donating such a huge project to the institution.

“For the first time in the history of the polytechnic, the alumni has constructed a storey building studio that will take 200 students at a time.

“This is something that gives me joy; it is something that needs to be encouraged.

“The Auchi alumni association has come to where we want them to be; to partner with us in all the other efforts, strive for the growth of the institution,” he said.

The rector, however, urged the association to key into the programme of one point agenda of no corruption in the institution.

Earlier, the traditional ruler of Auchi, Momoh, described the gesture as not only enviable but, also wonderful and commendable.

“The spirit of togetherness and promptness in responding to some of the challenges in the school has indeed shown the alumni association’s concern for the development of the institution.

“This will encourage others to give back to the institution that had nurtured them.” Otaru said.
