Senior Special Assistant to Kogi state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello on Political Matters (K/B/I) Omoluabi Bode Adeyemi has congratulated the Rector of Kogi State Polytechnic, Dr Usman Ogbo for the turnaround touch the state-owned tertiary institution has received in less than 100 days since he came on board.
Describing it as justification of Governor Yahaya Bello’s confidence in him, Omoluabi in a statement issued on Thursday said Dr. Ogbo has demonstrated that he is a great leader who can deploy his administrative dexterity in serving the people.
According to the governor’s aide, Dr. Ogbo’s track record as a sound and young academic and later the Head of Department of Political Science in Prince Abubakar Audu University, Ayigba was positioned for the exploits he is recording in Kogi State Polytechnic Lokoja.
“Dr. Usman Ogbo deserves our collective applause for the turnaround touch the school is enjoying under his leadership in a very short while.
“A relatively young academic and pro democratic researcher whose tenure as the HOD Political Science in the prestigious Prince Abubakar Audu was a testimony of honour and milestone of performance.
“He has replicated same in Kogi Polytechnic as the Rector. Today, he has invited our amiable governor, His Excellency Alhaji Yahaya Bello to commission a-45 bed space Hajia Hauwa Bello medical Centre, perimeter fence, security House, ICT centre and a newly renovated lecture theater. Today, the academic institution is wearing a new look courtesy of his transformatory leadership.
“This is unprecedented and we are proud of him. This has again brought to fore GYB’s eye for the brightest hands in the management of affairs of our state” Omoluabi said.
He also urged Dr. Ogbo to continue making the Polytechnic a pace-setter and example to others, assuring that the state government will give him all the necessary support in its avowed commitment to invest in the education sector.
