The Rector of the Federal Polytechnic, Ukana in the Essien Udom Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, Dr. Uduak Ukekpe, has commended the TETFUND intervention on infrastructural development of the five years old institution.

He said 80 per cent of the ongoing projects at the Polytechnic’s permanent site were sponsored through TETFUND intervention.

Ukekpe said this at a media briefing to highlight efforts made by the management of the school.

He added that the institution would relocate to its permanent site in 2021

“We have plans to move the administrative seat to the permanent campus. Civil Engineering and Electrical Electronics Engineering complexes as listed by NBTE are ongoing.

“By next year we will be good to go for the engineering programme. Some of the equipment have been installed. When I came in, there was no access road, there were no buildings that were near completion. No contractors were on site.

“We put up these structures within two years. We are currently running two programmes: Statistics and Computer Science. We are targeting eight more courses. We have manpower on the ground but it is not adequate.

“80 per cent of the projects you have seen here is as a result of TETFUND intervention. I want to thank TETFUND; we are doing our best to attract any TETFUND intervention where possible,” Ukekpe said.

The Rector said eight new academic programmes including Computer Engineering, Survey, Accounting, Business Administration, Civil Engineering, Electrical Electronics Engineering would be added to the two already existing ones.
