Ado Polytechnic to Begin Mass Production of Food 

The Rector, Federal Polytechnic Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, Temitope Alake, has revealed that the institution has put in place the necessary machinery to begin mass food production.

According to the Rector, the move would contribute immensely to ending the food scarcity in the country and also boost the institution’s internally generated revenue.

While speaking in Ado Ekiti on Saturday during a press conference to commemorate his first year in office, Alake called on well-meaning Nigerians to support the institution with tractors to enhance food cultivation on its vast farmlands.

“This institution will embark on mass food production through collaborative efforts with the School of Agriculture. This will help in making food available for our people as the country currently goes through an economic downturn. By the time this one is achieved, food scarcity will be gone,” he said. 

The Polytechnic Venture, Alake stressed, had been improved towards generating revenue, ensuring that bread and poultry production would be restored to help boost the institution’s IGR.

He then appealed to parents and guardians to allow their children to acquire sellable skills as he enjoined Nigerians to embrace vocational acquisition skills.

“The digital economy is reducing the need for manpower. That’s why we want to appeal to the parents to bring their wards to technical school. This will enable them to acquire manipulative and vocational skills so that they will be job creators,” he said.
