The Polytechnic, Ibadan

The Polytechnic, Ibadan (typically called "Poly Ibadan") is an institution of higher learning in Ibadan in Oyo State, Nigeria.[1] Founded in 1970, Poly Ibadan is similar to other polytechnics in Nigeria. The institution was established to provide an alternative higher education to universities, particularly in technical skill acquisition.[2] The vocational and skills acquisition centre is poised to ensure that students master a skill before leaving the institution and also provides skills training to the host community. Poly Ibadan is also well known for its unique slogan written in Yoruba language as "Ise loogun ise" which means 'Work is the medicine for poverty', a classical Yoruba adage which stresses that hard work is the way out of poverty.[3][4]
