A total number of 6, 559 students were weekend matriculated by the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi for the 2019/2020 academic session.

The Institution Rector, Sanusi Waziri Gumau said at the matriculation ceremony that the polytechnic received 9, 910 applications, but 9, 654 were admitted when 6, 559 were registered.

Rector Sanusi Gumau gave a breakdown of the matriculated students as Diploma - 920, National Diploma - 3,125, and Higher National Diploma - 2,421, as well as IJMB – 93.

He charged the matriculating students not to indulge in any act that is frowned upon by the society and the Polytechnic, saying “Indecent dressing is not tolerated here, cultism does not have a place here, and theft is a crime everywhere”. 

The Rector who stressed the need for private partnership development of the institution said, “I therefore, invite well-meaning indigenous business individuals, groups and corporate bodies who are willing to invest in the building of students’ hostels”.

He added, “We have a document from the Federal Ministry of Education of Private Partnership Development in Nigerian Tertiary Institution which will serve as guiding principles for the partnership”.

Gumau recalled that the matriculation was earmarked to hold in April, 2020, but for the  Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic which ravages and affected the whole world, forcing the Polytechnic to closed all academic activities and destructed not only the academic calendar of the institution but largely the nation’s economy.

The rector explained that it is due to the importance attached in giving out qualitative and affordable education to the teeming Nigerian youth that the management of the institution reopened it after meeting up with the COVID-19 protocols as condition.

The Register of the Polytechnic Hajiya Rakiya Usman Maleka has earlier said that the institution is known for its steadfastness in quality technological educational service delivery since the 1970s, independently resourceful academics and academicians, studious students, moral uprightness and visionary administrators.
