With barely 12 days to the Presidential and National Assembly Elections slated for February 25, 2023, the Federal Government of Nigeria has ordered the closure of all Polytechnics in the country.

This follows similar closure of universities across the country by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to enable students to participate in the February 25 and March 11 general elections.

The directive was issued by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu in a letter signed by an official of the ministry, I.O Folorunsho.

The letter, which was made available to journalists in Abuja, was addressed to the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Idris Bugaje.
