COVID-19 Ibadan Poly Produces Hand Sanitiser


The authorities of The Polytechnic, Ibadan have come out with the production of world class hand sanitizers as part of efforts to join hands with the Oyo State and The Federal government in the preventive measures against the deadly COVID-19

A statement from the institution signed by the Registrar, Mrs Modupe Theresa Fawale disclosed that the Management of the institution noticed the trend and dimension the deadly virus was taking, the apparent scarcity of standard hand sanitizers coupled with production by quacks and thus gathered it’s experts to produce world class sanitizers for public use.

“It noted that being a leading Polytechnic situated in a city with a very large population and a state larger than two or three states, the onus is on the institution to look for ways and means to make contributions to the State at it’s hour of need.”

Efforts, the statement added will be made to register the sanitizers with the National Agency for Food, Drug, Administration and Control(NAFDAC) noting that the current production was an intervention to save lives.

The product is already available at the Institution’s Vocational Skill and Entrepreneurship Study Centre(VSESC) as well some pharmaceutical Centres in Ibadan.

Some of the sanitizers had been presented to some senior government functionaries who also made purchase and distributed in their constituencies.

The production of the hand sanitizers was coordinated by the study centre.

  1. This a highly commendable development from The Polytechnic Ibadan under the able leadership of the Rector, Prof. Engr K. B. Adebiyi. Keep it up!

  2. Commendable development! This is the kind of development and intervention we expect from our “Academic Community” especially, from our Universities of Technology, Universities of Agriculture, and our Polytechnics… *proffering real solutions to solve real problems* facing us domestically which in turn could be exported beyond our local shores… not just dishing out “theoretical solutions” through paper presentations & journal publications that never, in most cases, materialize to solving real problems on a commercial scale. Government, in collaboration with Academics, need to be proactive in developing domestic technology, research and development. The Polytechnic Ibadan has taken a giant stride that is worthy of commendation and emulation. Let’s invest heavily to allow local technologies and production of goods see the light of the day!
