About Rivers State Polytechnic
Rivers State Polytechnic is a tertiary learning institution in Bori, Khana Local Government Area in Rivers State, Nigeria. It has two campuses, one for the School of Management Sciences and the other for the School of Engineering. It is approved as a state-owned polytechnic by the National Board for Technical Education. In January 2010 the polytechnic introduced a National Diploma course in Mass Communication, for aspiring journalists.
The polytechnic was established by the Rivers State Government in 13 May 1988 to provide instruction and research in applied science, technology, commerce and business management. The Military Governor, Anthony Ukpo, inaugurated the provisional council and his successor, Group Captain Ernest Adeleye signed the edict establishing the Polytechnic on 25 March 1989 and performed the formal ceremony of the institution on 19 May 1990. In 2009 Senator Lee Ledogo Maeba noted that in 2007 he had obtained approval in principle from the Federal Government to upgrade the polytechnic to a Federal institution, but that the state government had yet to follow up on the opportunity.
In August 2009 the acting provost spoke of the problem with cultism among students, and possibly instructors, and described the decisive actions that the polytechnic was taking to combat it. Talking in November 2009 about efforts to clean up the environment from contamination by oil exploitation, Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi said that educational institutes including the polytechnic would assist in ensuring the success of the program.
