Brief History of FEDPOFFA



THE Federal Polytechnic, Offa came out of gestation via a presidential
announcement made during a courtesy call on His Royal Highness, Olofa of Offa,
late Oba Mustapha Olawoore Olanipekun Ariwajoye II, by the then Military
President, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, who was on an official visit to
Kwara State in 1991.

Consequently, a Local Task Force was then constituted by His Royal Highness, the
Olofa, under the Chairman of Late Alhaji Tiamiyu Olatinwo with six other eminent
indigenes of Offa and Chief Ayotunde Raji as Secretary.

With the release of Olalomi Comprehensive College by the community, the Local
Task Force prepared the ground for easy take-off of the Polytechnic at the site
which now serves as the Mini Campus of the Polytechnic.

The appointment of Engr. (Mrs.) Taiwo Adeife Osemeikhian, as the pioneer Rector
commenced both administrative and academic activities in the Polytechnic in
February, 1992. Engr. Adeife served from 1992 till year 2000, under the
supervision of a Federal Task Force led by the then Director of Science and
Technology, Federal Ministry of Education. The Task Force was responsible for
taking major policy decisions affecting the Polytechnic and performing the
functions of the Governing Council. In year 2000, She handed over to Dr. Razaq
Bello from whom Dr. Mufutau Olatunde Olatinwo, took over to pilot the affairs of
the Polytechnic as Ag. Rector and later as the third substantive Rector of the
Polytechnic in 2008. The incumbent Rector, Dr. Lateef Ademola Olatunji, was
appointed the 4th substantive Rector in December, 2016.

The first Governing Council of the Polytechnic led by late Hon. Adesola Oyeladun
Oyemade was inaugurated alongside councils of other Tertiary institutions in
year 2000. The second Governing Council, headed by Mr. Dogara Igube, came on
board in 2005 while the third Governing Council headed by late Senator (Engr.)
Onyeka Okoroafor, was constituted in 2009. The fourth Governing Council, led by
Chief Okey Ezenwa, was inaugurated in 2013 while the fifth Governing Council
under the leadership of Chief Oseloka Zikora was inaugurated along with other
Federal Polytechnics in 2017.

the six programmes viz;
