The Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, has ranked overall best in the national innovation and creative invention exhibition/competition. 

The victory is contained in a statement signed by ola Lawal, the Protocol, Media and Public Relations Officer of the institution and made available to journalists on Tuesday in Oshogbo.

Lawal stated that the competition was organised by Ubelle Nigeria Ltd., on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education for  Polytechnics in Nigeria.

The PRO also disclosed that students of the institution nailed the first, second and third positions at the end of the competition which was held in Benin city on November 2.

He added that the students also emerge as overall best students in the South-South and South-West regions.

Lawal said the achievement gave the Polytechnic the opportunity to participate in the grand finale of the National Competition on November 15 in Abuja.

“A mail was sent in the month of October by Ubelle Nigeria Ltd., on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education to Polytechnics across Nigeria to submit undergraduate students’ inventions and creative innovations in the field of Science and Technology.

“To this end, the Federal Polytechnic, Ede was among the few Polytechnics that submitted entries.

“The Polytechnic scaled through the preliminary stage, in which four students from the institution were selected to participate in the competition.

“The selected students were: Abbey Valentine Ngozi (Mechanical Engineering) Technology Department; Afolabi Emmanuel Oluwasegun (Computer Engineering Technology Department; Alabi Emmanuel Oluwapelumi (Electrical Engineering Technology Department) and Adeyi Adekunle Samuel (Civil Engineering Technology Department).

“The team, which was led by Babatunde Adewumi from the  Civil Engineering Department,  at the end of the competition/exhibition clinched the first, second and third positions in the South-West and produced the overall best student in the South-South and South-West,” he said.

Reacting to the feat, the Acting Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr Joseph Petinrin, commended the representative for bringing honour to the institution.

The VC maintained that the success can be attributed to his advice to members of the staff of the institution to be fully dedicated and restore academic excellence.

He charged the representatives to be good ambassadors of the Polytechnic according to its motto “Knowledge, Skill and Character” and " come out in flying colour at the grand finale of the competition,” he said.
