The Governor of Abia State, Ikpeazu, has criticized the decision by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) to revoke Abia State Polytechnic, Aba's accreditation due to staff salaries and benefits having not been paid for more than 30 months.

Strenuousblog reported on Tuesday that NBTE withdrew Abia Poly accreditation due to non-payment of staff salaries for more than 30 months.

The board (NBTE) also instructed the National Youth Service Corps, or NYSC, not to call up any polytechnic graduates for their national service until the institution fixes the issue, read here
