MAPOLY remains in Abeokuta, as Assembly amends MAUSTECH law

The controversy surrounding the relocation of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) from its current site in Abeokuta to Ipokia appeared to have been laid to rest on Thursday as the Ogun State House of Assembly amended the law backing the relocation to now reflect that it should remain on its current site in the state capital.

The passage of the bill was sequel to the presentation of the report of the Committee on Education, Science and Technology by its Chairman, Adeyemi Ademuyiwa, who thereafter moved the motion for its adoption, seconded by his Ewekoro counterpart, Yusuf Amosun and supported by the Whole House through a voice vote at a plenary presided over by Speaker Olakunle Oluomo at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

The Bill was thereafter read clause- by- clause and adopted before the members, after which the motion for the third reading was moved by the Minority Leader Ganiyu Oyedeji, seconded by the Deputy Majority Leader, Abdul Bashir Oladunjoye (SEGUN SHITTA), while the Acting Clerk, Mr. Deji Adeyemo did the third reading of the bill.

The Speaker thereafter directed that the clean copy of the bill be forwarded to the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for his assent.

The amendment partly seeks to revalidate MAPOLY law to ensure the return of smooth academic activities at the institution, with all property of the institution hitherto transfered to MAUSTECH now return to MAPOLY.

Being an alumnus of MAPOLY, the institution is very dear to the Deputy Majority Leader & he’s very passionate about anything that concerns the institution.
