According to him, “We at Summit University are ready to collaborate with you, though both schools have been impacting the community together. The University has been working tireless and jointly with some staff members of the Polytechnic to make Offa the home of ICT and the largest producer of Printed Circuit Board in the upcoming weeks.”

“The University needs the collaboration now that we are set to commence four (4) programmes in Engineering which are Mechatronics, Electrical, Computer and Information and Communication Technology. More so, we are commencing another four programmes under ICT, which are Data Science, Cybersecurity, Software Engineering and Information Technology. In addition, the University is going into a Cashew Plantation of 100 acres and needs the support of the Polytechnic in the area of Agriculture, as we cannot do it alone.”
