The Rector, Kwara State Polytechnic, Alhaji Mas’ud Elelu, yesterday said that the institution had not increased its school fees.
“The campaign on the social media is callous and not a true representation of the institution’s authorities,” Elelu told newsmen in Ilorin.
“I urge the general public to always seek clarification when they are in doubt over activities of the school,’’ Elelu said.
The rector advised the public to verify information on fees and other activities of the school on the institution’s official website.
Elelu also described as untrue speculations that the institution asked students to pay before mobilising them for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
“Any of our graduates that is yet to be mobilised for the NYSC scheme must have either been expelled, is sick or has a carryover in a course,’’ the rector said.
Elelu advised the public to always clarify issues with the school rather than rely on social media which, he said, are subject to abuse.
He further disclosed that students may not be admitted into the hostels for now, as the institution is collaborating with the private sector on the rehabilitation of the facility.
