The Rector of The Federal Polytechnic Offa, Dr. Lateef Olatunji has taken a lead role to tour round the Polytechnic campuses to inspect the level of Covid-19 compliance by staff and students of the institution.
Following the Federal Government’s directive that all tertiary institutions should reopen with strict adherence to covid-19 protocols, the Management Task Force for Covid-19 has therefore set up a weekly monitoring team in order to ensure Covid-19 compliance. The team include all the Principal Officers and members of the management staff of the Polytechnic.
The Rector, Dr. Olatunji accompanied by Deputy Rector administration and Polytechnic Chairman of Covid-19 Technical Committee, Dr. Olarongbe Afolabi, Dean of Exams, Dr. S.A. Alayemi, Dean of Research and Development, Dr. A.S. Mohammed, Dean of Students Affairs, Mr. Gbenga Aleminu and Director of Information, Public Relations and Protocols, Mr. Olayinka Iroye were stationed at the Polytechnic entrance to ascertain the operation of security personnel and monitor the level of compliance of staff, students and visitors to all the Covid-19 protocols.
Recalled that the Management in a press release had earlier enforced the Polytechnic publics to always use face mask, hand sanitizer and at the same time make use of hand washing and sanitizing machines placed in strategic locations on both campuses. The Management therefore emphasised on the need to always be on a safer side by getting familiar with the new system occasioned by the pandemic.
The Rector also visited different lecture halls and departments to check the sitting arrangement in line with physical distancing order and charged students to continue to embrace all preventive measures as stated by the Management Covid-19 Technical Committee.
