The Philosophy and Objectives of FIDEI POLYTECHNIC, GBOKO
Nigerians, it has been observed and ascertained, love short cuts. But Fr. Utov doe not. It is also said of the nation’s citizens that instead of hunting for enduring solutions to our not-too-peculiar ailments, we embrace whatever is touted as the panacea. We crave for quick fixes. But quick fixes give only monetary relief, if the give any at all. Soon, the problem bounces back or the expected solution sires its own problems (WAZIRI ADIO, THURSDAY, Sunday March 18, 2001, back page).

Two letters from the Ministry detailed out the required procedures and the need to contact the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE). This was in pursuance of the desire not to establish an illegal institute which could not stand test of time and Government. Thus, it came to pass that after two inspections of the proposed site and physical structures by the Education Ministry’s Teams, and the consultancy services on the NBTE’S directives and visits, the philosophy of Fidpoly devolved as follows:
