Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, disclaimer notice as regards collaboration with another Polytechnic to offer admission to some prospective candidates.
Authorities of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede Owerri, released a press release to inform all prospective candidates of the institution their attention have been drawn to statements and text messages issued by certain persons to the effect that federal polytechnic, Nekede Owerri is working in collaboration with another Polytechnic to offer admission to some prospective candidates.
Reference is particularly made to a text message purportedly issued by one Praxis Institute of Entrepreneurs and Administrators, Uli, in Anambra State, which claimed that the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede forwarded the name of one Amaechi Rosita to the so called Institute in Uli for admission, for the year 2014/2015.
We want to state categorically that the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede Owerri is not working in collaboration with any institution whatsoever, be it Polytechnic, Monotechnic or University for the purposes of offering admissions to students or group of students for academic studies. The information that the polytechnic is collaborating with the Institute of Entrepreneurs and Administrators Uli, Anambra in this direction is highly misleading, false and malicious. It is undoubtedly, a calculated attempt to damage the reputation of our great Polytechnic. Let it be explicitly known by the Prospective Students and Members of the Public that Federal Polytechnic, Nekede Owerri, strictly adheres to due process in its admission procedure. In other words, students are admitted through Joint Matriculation Examinations organized by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the UTME.
While dissociating the Polytechnic totally from any form of collaboration with such Institutions, Members of the Public are advised to be extremely careful of publication linking the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede Owerri with admission issues in order not to dupe and exploit unsuspecting individuals and groups.
