The need to look inward for next Kogipoly rector

Kogi state is at the threshold of history once again.
The search for would be rector of the Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, is ongoing.
While the need to engage capable hand this time around is not negotiable, some have said that there is the need to look inward, as the school also parades some of the finest academics who are versed in their fields of study and possessed the needed requisite managerial credentials.
The emergence of such officer from within the circle will create room for continuity, effectiveness and general well-being of the institution.
One of such personalities who quickly come to mind is Puke Tunde Anthony.
He holds B. Sc. MPA, M.Sc., Ph.D in Public Administration and has held several positions of responsibility in the institution.
He served as HOD, dept of part-time and extra-mural studies, from 2007-2010.
He was also dean, School of Part-Time and Extra-mural Studies (2010-2012), commissioner, ministry of youth and sports, Kogi state (2012-2014).
Because of love for the academic environment, after his tenure as commissioner, unlike some others, he returned to the classroom and was again appointed dean, School of Management Studies (2015-date).
He served as chairman, secretary and member of several polytechnic management, development, disciplinary and examination boards and committees.
He is a member of various academic boards and professional bodies.
He has several books and academic publications to his credit.
He is from Ajaokuta LGA, Kogi central, Kogi state.
We have several others abound in the polytechnic.
Looking inward will not only bring about development in the institution, but will also be cost-effective for the government considering the dwindling economic fortunes of the state.
