In other news, the Abia State Government has announced that it is considering a downward review of the tuition paid in the Abia State Polytechnic in Aba.
According to the Weekly Trust, Gov. Theodore Orji made the announcement in Aba on Friday while inaugurating a pedestrian bridge built at the polytechnic located on Aba-Owerri Road.
”There will not be any discrimination in the fee, whether you are from Abia or from other states, you will all pay the same fee.”
On that visit, Gov. Orji regretted that many students had died while attempting to cross the busy road and said that the bridge was built to save the lives of students.
He admonished the students to make effective use of the bridge, pointing out that the barricade on the median of the road was built to compel usage by students.
Acknowledging the Governors gesture towards the institution, Chairman of the Polytechnic’s Governing Council, Chief Mba Ukariwo, said that the bridge would enhance the safety of students. He disclosed that the polytechnic lost four students who were knocked down by moving vehicles in front of the polytechnic last year.
The President of the Student Union Government, Mr Awa Nmaju thanked the governor for his support to the institution in facilitating the introduction of more engineering courses.
Governor Orji also inaugurated the Dan Fodio/East Road, Old Express/Samek Road and Ukwu Mangoro Road, which had been impassable for more than 15 years.

These are the kind of stories we want to hear!
Thumbs up Gov. Orji.
Way to go!
