Federal Polytechnic Nekede reportedly acquire second campus at Ohaji Egbema Imo State



Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, Imo State has reportedly acquired second campus at Ohaji Egbema Imo State.

According to reports sighted by Raw Nigeria, the campus is for School of Agriculture Technology and other academic practical activities. The institution haven’t released any statement yet on this development.

Meanwhile, an unverified report from FEDPONEK Gazette states:


In another historic feat, the pace-setting Federal Polytechnic Nekede has acquired a second campus. This comes after a period of rigorous effort in this regard by the Rector and his team of Management.

Disclosing this last Thursday, the Rector of the institution, Engr. Dr. Michael Chidiebere Arimanwa, stated that the approval for the new campus had been given by the President, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, through a letter dated 12th January, 2023.

Located at Egbema, Imo State, the second campus is a finished project with state-of-the-art facilities. It was originally built as a modern skill acquisition centre by the Ministry of Niger Affairs.

A tour on the facility last Thursday by a joint team of officials from the Ministry of Niger Delta and the polytechnic revealed that the site boasts of modern classrooms, workshops, hostels, staff quarters, auditorium and sports complex, among others.

It is expected to contribute significantly to the long-expected expansion of the institution, which has been a leading polytechnic in Nigeria. Ultimately, the new campus is expected to accommodate disciplines that are over 80% practical- oriented.

The formal hand-over ceremony of the second campus is expected to be performed by Mr President in few weeks. After this, some Schools of the institution would be moved to the new campus.The need for a second campus has been on the front burner for some time, prompting the Rector to swing to action on how to solve the problem. There are disciplines in the institution which simply require demonstration sites. For instance, all the disciplines in the School of Agricultural Technology require demonstration farms, by the standards of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).

The first revelation on the possibility of a new campus was made last October by the Rector where he stated thus: “My administration is working hard to get a second campus.
