Nigerians react to list of new federal polytechnics established by President Buhari
Some Nigerians have, however, taken to Ahmad’s Twitter handle to react to the list of new federal polytechnics established.
Kelechi @kaycdgreat, described the polytechnics as paperwork institutions that won’t see the light of day.
“Paper work polytechnics… all these won’t come to reality, Buhari & his cabinet failed woefully.
“What’s all the rush to approve last minute plans, also requesting for $800m loan is totally unacceptable,” he wrote.
Another Nigerian, Ahmad Isa @a_iman7, wondered why establishing polytechnics should be considered an achievement.
“Wow! So this is an achievement? How many of his grandchildren have ever attended polytechnic? Has the issue of dichotomy between universities and polytechnics been fixed? Do you know what polytechnics in UK offers? Polytechnics in UK offers degrees not diplomas.”

Michael @aluta_michael, asked why the federal government keeps establishing new polytechnics when the old ones have no infrastructure.
“We keep establishing glorified secondary schools in the name polytechnics and Universities.
“The ones we have b4 now , no infrastructure.”
A Twitter user, BLACK-GEE @aboubaqar, also asked where equality and fairness were when all the polytechnics are in the North.
“All these polytechnics are from the North. Is this equity and fairness? Then why? @BashirAhmaad”
Another Nigerian, Megida Abdulakeem Olawale, @Ideaikubolaje, said 60% of polytechnics are in the northern part of the country.
“Virtually 60% plus comes from the north. Don’t worry it’s our turn now”
