According to him, “After vigorous inspection and interview of the residential students in the institution, we want to use this medium to call on the Federal Government to address the dilapidated infrastructures, most especially hostels on the campuses of Kaduna Polytechnic
“Meeting the management of the institution, we observed high sense of commitment to academic excellence, security, reviving the dilapidated infrastructures, establishment of Centre of Technology Development and to create job through entrepreneurship skills.
“The efforts of management in turning around the fortunes of Kaduna Polytechnic is in fact worthy of emulation. But, the level of infrastructural dilapidation in the institution is beyond the capacity of the management.
“We therefore call on all prominent alumni of Kaduna Polytechnic to come to our aide, as the institution is no longer conducive for learning.” He said.
