The Auchi Polytechnic Alumni Association (APAA), on Monday handed over a 200-capacity Engineering Drawing Studio it constructed to the Institution. The facility was inaugurated by the Otaru of Auchi, Alhaji Haliru Momoh at the institution’s premises in Auchi, Edo State.
The National President of APAA, Mr Victor Okhaimo, while handing over the studio, said that it has 14 offices and other state-of-the-art facilities. Okhaimo said that the facility was part of the association’s contribution to the yearning for more learning spaces in the engineering department of the polytechnic.
The Rector, Dr Sanusi Jimah, commended the association for donating such a huge project to the institution. “For the first time in the history of the polytechnic, the alumni has constructed a storey building studio that will take 200 students at a time. This is something that gives me joy; it is something that needs to be encouraged. The Association has come to where we want them to be; to partner with us in all the other efforts, strive for the growth of the institution,” he said.
