Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum has suspended the entire management of the state-owned Ramat Polytechnic in Maiduguri.
Governor Zulum ordered them to stay away from the institution for six months.
The Governor during a surprise visit to the institution was shocked to see workshops and laboratories no longer functioning.
Many machines found in the place were out of use with some covered by cobwebs and rodents roaming around due to long period of being abandoned.
Governor Zulum after assessing all infrastructures and learning conditions, directed the State’s Commissioner of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, Dr. Babagana Mallumbe to take over the affairs of the school immediately.
The management of the school were suspended from work for six months, due to what the governor described as incompetency.
The Governor further directed the ministry of water resources to drill two deep aquifers borehole and carry out a complete water channel network within the polytechnic.
The state government had in 2019 approved some intervention projects for the Polytechnic, which includes solving problems of water supply.
