Gov Ihedioha reverses Imo State University of Agriculture and Technology, back to Polytechnic

Less than one month after he resumed office, the newly elected Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has again made some changes in the state’s educational system.
Ihedioha reversed the status of the newly converted Imo State University of Agriculture and Technology, Umuagwo, to its earlier polytechnic status.  

It would be recalled that the immediate past governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha of APC, at the end of his administration elevated the polytechnic to a university status and appointed a Vice Chancellor.

Okorocha moved the polytechnic to Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of the state. 

 A statement issued in Owerri, the state capital by the Secretary to the state government, Uche Onyeagucha noted that the governor has reversed the institution to its original status and appointed an acting rector, following the retirement of Wance Madu.

“Resultant upon the expiration of the tenure of the Rector who has since proceeded on terminal leave, the most senior academic staff in the Polytechnic Dr. Paddy N. Njoku is hereby appointed the Acting Rector of the Polytechnic effective from today June 10, 2019.
