The 37-year era of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic has now ended, as it will now become a degree-awarding institution.
This new move will now bring the number of universities in Ogun State to 11, with three now being state owned. Other universities owned by the Ogun State government include, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta; and Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye.
As a replacement for Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, a second bill was also signed into law to re-establish the Ogun State Polytechnic in Ipokia Local Government area of the state.
Amosun said that the government will consult with think-tanks to provide a proper guide to the takeoff of the schools to keep them up to par with other schools.
While the Governor commended the House of Assembly for the speedy signing, the speaker of the house, Ishola Adekunbi, had stuff to say too. He said the prompt signing was because the House could see all the prospective opportunities this could creat for the schools, and the state.
