Historical Background

Kishi Novelty Polytechnic is a private polytechnic incorporated in Nigeria and approved by the National Board for Technical Education, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Education in August 2019. Situated on one hundred and twenty two hectares (1.22km2) of land, the Novelty Schools Project is a one-stop educational center of excellence comprising of a kindergarten, Primary, Secondary and now Polytechnic. The elementary and secondary sections which started in 2017, has almost 300 students and still growing due to the very high standard of not just the teaching methods but the very conducive learning environment put in place for teachers and students. In addition, it is a powerful hub for information and communications technology (ICT) which has been further enhanced by the approval of the Novelty/Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board CBT center by that Board earlier this January 2019. In fact, the Novelty/CBT center was adjudged one of the best even though it was one of the latest approved. Kishi for the first time in history hosted hordes of JAMB examinations candidates this year at our center.

The Proprietor


The sole proprietor, a philanthropist, retired public servant and renowned educationist and astute administrator, Dr Abdul Ganiyu Gbolagade Salami has left no stone unturned in his dogged pursuit of raising the banner of the Kishi community in every sphere of life including education. Concerned with the recent general deterioration of the standard of education and the need to improve same, the proprietor had over the last four decades been involved in various activities and initiatives to assist not just his Kishi Community but the entire Nigeria.
This current initiative which began five years under a different name underwent various challenges and has now culminated into The Kishi Novelty Polytechnic on a sole private proprietorship to the Glory of God. With JAMB recording over 1.8m candidates during its last examinations exercise and less than 700,000 absorbable by the various universities, the nation has the big challenge of what to do with the large number of young potential idle men and women in the society, hence the setting up of private Polytechnics among others is to ameliorate some the potential social problems. Kishi Novelty polytechnic is therefore playing its modest role of taking up such a challenge alongside others. It is hoped that, our community and indeed Nigerians would take advantage of the establishment of the institution to ensure that the purpose for which so much resources have been expended would be achieved. The unquantifiable resources, dedication and hard work of a number people which resulted in the gains so far made cannot be overemphasized and must be mentioned. Among them is the Novelty Dream Team led by Surv. Abdul Jelil Tijani, who strenuously coordinated all the activities from construction to finance and administration. The Offa Lens Polytechnic support team, led by it’s Proprietor, Dr. Yisa Azeez and it’s Registrar, Mr. Akeem Dunmoye who stood solidly behind us deserve exclusive commendation. Our friends and compatriots, Ag. Rector, Prof. YK Sanusi, Prof. Abdul Waheed Saliu, Alhaji Sikiru Masoroju and Alhaji Taiye Hassan Lawahb deserve special recognition. And of course, the support of my wife Jady Ameena and some of my immediate family members not only kept the project alive but greatly enhanced this fruition. Above all, the Mercy and Grace of Allah and His Decree are the reasons for our success. Finally, we intend to follow up our application with the National Universities Commission (NUC) for the approval of Kishi Novelty University vigorously to complete the circle.
