    Your list of best polytechnics in Nigeria is inadequate, shallow and biased. Where do you place The Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti?

    1. Abass

      The fact that you know of one Polytechnic and you think it should be one of the best in Nigeria shouldn’t make you fault any list that doesn’t recognize that polytechnic. Have you been to the listed polytechnics to confirm whether they really rank higher than your “candidate”? Don’t always rush to post comments with a biased, shallow, and myopic mind. The article was a product of research. You can give us reasons why The Fed. Poly Ado-ekiti should have been ranked above the listed polytechnics.
