It has come to the notice of the management of Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, Ikot Osurua, that some persons or group of persons and Institutions have claimed to be affiliated to the Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, Ikot Osurua. To that extent, they floated programmes without the knowledge and consent of the Institution’s Management with the intention of duping unsuspecting public.

The Management of Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, Ikot Osurua hereby notifies the general public that following the directive of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) through its memo dated September 15th 2001 with Ref. No. TEB/PRO/F/7/Vol. III/224 which conveyed the decision of the Federal Government on the above subject matter, Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, Ikot Osurua had since then in compliance with the NBTE directive promptly ordered the closure of all its study centres nationwide, and published the information in three national daily newspapers in July 2007.

We therefore wish to inform the general public that sequel to the directive of NBTE afore stated, we have neither mandated any person or group to operate any study centre in any of the country nor have we affiliated the Institution to any Private Polytechnic in Nigeria or Abroad.

This public notice is therefore a warning shot to members of the public to dissociate themselves forthwith from any person or group of persons purportedly claiming to be acting on behalf of Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, Ikot Osurua, as these are fraudsters.

On this premise therefore, we call on the security agents to arrest and prosecute any person or group of person found culpable in the illegal operation of any purported Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic Satellite Campuses/Outreach Study Centre in any
