Management of the The Federal Polytechnic Offa has reacted to the revised academic calendar in circulation on social media as fake and not authorized by the Academic Board of the Institution.
This was disclosed in a disclaimer notice signed by the Director of Information, Public Relations and Protocols, Olayinka Iroye on Wednesday, 9th of June 2021.
The statement reads in full:
“The attention of Management of the Polytechnic has been drawn to a purported ‘draft academic calendar’ peddled on social media.
“The Management wishes to inform all staff, students and the general public that the said draft academic calendar does not emanate from the Polytechnic and should be ignored.
“Academic Board is the only statutory body that has prerogative to approve academic calendar, and it has not met in recent times due to the ongoing industrial action by ASUP.
“I wish to reiterate that the academic calendar which has gone viral on social media is fake and should be disregarded in its entirety.”
