BRIEF HISTORY OF THE POLYTECHNIC
Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic, Unwana (formerly The Federal Polytechnic, Unwana Afikpo) was established by Decree No.33 of 1979.

Work then commenced on the rehabilitation of the Polytechnic's temporary site at Okposi in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the then Imo State. At the same time, perimeter survey of the permanent site of the Institution at Unwana, in Afikpo Local Government Area commenced. On April 30, 1982, the Foundation Stone of the Polytechnic was laid at Unwana by the' then Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, ChiefDr. Alex Ekwueme.

PHILOSOPHY OF THE POLYTECHNIC

The philosophy is principally aimed at inculcating in students and staff the discipline of hard-work to be able to acquire both the practical and theoretical skills necessary for self-reliance.
