SSANIP proposes the establishment of a Polytechnic Commission
The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics (SSANIP) has proposed the establishment of a Polytechnic Commission.
SSANIP made the remarks in a communiqué at the end of its General Executive Council meeting in Abuja, signed by its President and Secretary, Adebanjo Ogunsipe and Hussaini Yusuf Gwandu respectively.
The association called on the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) to set up a polytechnics commission.
It felt that polytechnics would be better supervised and regulated under the commission.
The communiqué said the meeting discussed the non-payment of half salaries for 30 months and irregular payment of salaries at the state polytechnics.
The meeting noted the determination of the Federal Government to release N15 billion as revitalisation fund for the polytechnics, describing it as a step in the right direction.
The communiqué said, “The council expressed displeasure that the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF) has still not released the new scheme and conditions of service.”
