A coalition of Nigerian youth groups has said that infrastructural and intellectual growth in any academia can only be assured when qualified individuals are appointed into sensitive positions in such institutions.

While calling for support for the growth and development of the Petroleum Training Institute of Nigeria, the group appealed for collaborative support for its new management, led by Dr. Henry Adebowale Adimula.

The call is contained in a press statement signed by the leader of the coalition and the National President of the Nigerian Youth Union(NYU), Chinonso Obasi.

The groups comprising, the Nigerian Youth Union(NYU), the National Association of Nigerian Students(NANS), National Association of Polytechnic Students(NAPS), African Students Education Support Initiative(ASESI), and Coalition of Nothern Groups(CNG) say the appointment of Adimula as the 8th CEO of the Institute personifies the square peg in a square hole adage.

The coalition lauded the Governing Council of PTI for its foresight in appointing a long time staff of the institute to head its affairs, saying only an individual within the system, who understands its challenges, can sufficiently help proffer solutions to them.

Dr. Henry Adebowale Adimula joined the services of Petroleum Training Institute Institute in 1992 as a lecturer 2 and has now risen to the status of its CEO through hard work, according to the youths.

Until his appointment, Dr. H. A. Adimula was the institute’s acting Principal and Chief Executive from July 4, 2020, to June 17, 2021. He was the former Vice-Principal of the Institute from December 4, 2019, to July 4, 2020.

The Coalition said ”A man with such growth and pedigree within the institute has over time, known the challenges confronting the institute and equally has ample solutions. This compelled our advocacy for all-inclusive support and progressive partnership to enable his success as the Chief Executive, Obasi said.

It is also unfortunate that some misinformed and misguided charlatans are on the demand for the reversal of Dr. Adimula’s appointment on the ground that every Chief Executive of Federal Institutions in Nigeria are people from those areas.

This claim is false and unfounded. Just to mention a few; The Vice-Chancellor Federal University of Technology Owerri Prof. Nnenna Oti is from Ebonyi State, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah is from Kwara State, the Vice-Chancellor University of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, Prof Charles A. Igwe is from Anambra State. That notwithstanding, the Vice-Chancellor of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike Ebonyi State, Prof Sunday Elom is from the same Ebonyi State, the Vice-Chancellor Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun Prof Akpofure Rim-Rukeh is from Delta State but that doesn’t make it a law but a coincidence.

”We, therefore, caution those paid to heighten tension in the peaceful Institute to desist from the biased demands on a baseless claim of withdrawal of the appointment of Dr. Henry Adebowale Adimula as the Principal of Petroleum Training Institute on the ground that he is not from Urhobo, Delta State or shall have Nigerian youths and students to contain.
