1003273_141233576075578_825677672_nThe naming of our institution of higher learning - “Heritage Polytechnic” was not haphazard rather it was a product of deep-seated and all-embracing thought on what legacy or inheritance the promoters of the institution intend to bequeath unto generations. In real life situations, it is common that people often prepare what to provide for and / or hand over to their descendants while alive or after death, through will. Some of the assets are mostly shared in discriminatory manner in tandem with some of the lopsided traditions of the affected people. These inheritances, which could be in the form of cultural or religious beliefs, buildings, art, occupations, ideas that are set aside by the society for imbibitions and preservations are best described as “Heritage.”

Of all the inheritances, knowledge is the greatest. It must therefore not just be ordinary knowledge, but demonstrably qualitative, which is capable of sustaining the future economy of our nation. And qualitativeA cursory assessment of the society today, one can rightly observe that there is a sharp decay in our much revered morals; there is a serious crack in family structures. Also, lawlessness has been institutionalized ---hired killings, bribery and corruption in higher places --- and the religious fibers of the society have been grossly torn apart.

The founders of the institution, in recognition of these societal ills and in their quest to correct them and leave indelible and non – discriminatory footprints on the sand of successful contributors to the development of human assets, deemed it proper to institutionalize a citadel for acquisition of qualitative knowledge and also create non discriminatory multiplier effects on the economy through the establishment of Heritage “of knowledge” , Heritage “of human capital development”, Heritage “of socio-cultural rejuvenation, imbibitions and sustenance”, and Heritage “of private sector / government partnering” Polytechnic.

Academic results which therefore culminated in the public outcry against the crystal deplorable standard of education in the country. Also, fees charged by the few privately established institutions of higher learning that sustained the hope of the masses were too high beyond the reach of the average parents. Informed by the need to, among other things, address these weaknesses and contribute our quota to the National Development, the idea of establishing the polytechnic was nurtured and fruitfully sustained. The Polytechnic is sited in a serene environment of about fifty four (54) hectres land mass. The institution, in its avowed determination to offer qualitative education at all times, has employed the best hands, focused and highly qualified; and is driven by modern technology with up-to-date and state-of-the-art facilities to make learning more appealing to our students.
