The list (short or long) of popular alumni of The Polytechnic Ibadan grew this week with the revelation that the newly elected Ooni of Ife, Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, attended the academic institution.
The polytechnic in a statement signed by Registrar of the institution, Mr. Hezekiah Ayodele, said the choice of Ogunwusi was based on his pedigree, antecedents and unparalleled achievements in many spheres of life.
The statement read in part, “The management of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, has congratulated Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, an alumnus of the institution, on his appointment as the Ooni-elect. His appointment is a pride to The Polytechnic, Ibadan.
“His appointment has further confirmed the capacity of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, as a first class institution, which has trained many distinguished Nigerians, including the incumbent governor of Osun State and Ekiti, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and Peter Ayodele Fayose, respectively.
“The management has no doubt that the choice of Ogunwusi was based on his pedigree, antecedents and unparalleled achievements in many spheres of life.
“While congratulating the Ooni-elect, the management prayed to God to give him the wisdom to pilot the affairs of the ancient city to greater heights.”
