In reaction to a move by some staff of the institution to pass Vote of No Confidence on Professor Ogundiran, the poly Students’ Union said Ogundiran is an experienced educationist whom his appointment as the school council chairman has been impactful.

Students’ Union of Ogundoyin poly explained that Professor Samuel Ogunwale Ogundiran appointment for the institution is fit for purpose, as most of the long internal and external problems facing the students and lecturers of the institution have been resolved during the time of Ogundiran.

Adeseun Ogundoyin Students’ Union Government letter addressed to governor Makinde read :


The Students’ Union Government of Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic Eruwa hereby write to Your Excellency in reaction to a purported move of some digruntled elements in the state planning that a Vote of No Confidence be passed on the Governing Council Chairman of Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic Eruwa, Professor Samuel Ogunwale Ogundiran.

Since your assumption in office as the governor of the state Sir, there has been a deliberate to ask to transform education which has led you into searching for people of wisdom, integrity and intellect which you succeeded in by appointing Governing Councils to various state owned tertiary institutions on the 7th of July 2020, Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic Eruwa is not an exception.

Even though, he is not a newbie in the system as he was the Chairman in the previous administration, Professor Samuel Ogundiran impacts in the institution in the last 13 months cannot be overemphasized.

Knowing full well that there have been problems arising of non accreditation of courses in the school limiting the number of programs offered, he was able to use his influence to fast track the accreditation process. The NBTE team led by Mallam G.M Nalado conducted it’s visitation to the school from 29th November to 2nd December, this resulted into the approval of more programs.

The accreditation of some programmes was also the reason why some graduates of the 2016/2017 session have not yet been mobilized for the National Youth Service Corps. This has grievously caused a setback in some people’s lives especially if the NYSC certificate is made a prerequisite for job employment. He had to put it upon himself to go to the NYSC secretariat in Abuja to resolve the mobilisation crisis.

Being an academician that knows the value of additional certifications in the modern world, he has been able to use his initiative to introduce affliated ICT programs into the school. CISCO and Microsoft certificates are now being awarded to students of Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic Eruwa.

He holds the matters of students so dearly to his heart as a father and quick to look into agitations of the management. You would agree with us Sir, that Professor Samuel Ogundiran is a visionary and charismatic leader, he believes in development and career building also a man with an impeccable character.

The Students’ Union being a key stakeholder in the school has deemed it fit to write to you as a matter of urgency to discard the false allegations that has been written against the Chairman who is worthy of the appointment.

Your Excellency Sir, we ask in your office that you discountenance whatever anybody has brought to you against the man of progressive ideology.

Thank you sir.
