A Member Representing Ika South Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Festus Okoh has written to appreciate Governor Ifeanyi Okowa on the establishment of the University of Delta (UniDel) in Agbor.
The lawmaker in a note of appreciation said Okowa’s decision to upgrade the College of Education Agbor to a full-fledged university was well thought out given that the institution was going down due to a lack of students for several programmes.
He said the people of Ika received the news of the establishment of the university with great expectations and urged well-meaning Ika indigenes to support the government’s efforts in building the new university.
“On Thursday, 25th of February, 2021, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, signed the bill establishing University of Delta, Agbor, (UniDel), as passed by the Delta State House of Assembly, into law. Since the bill was sent to the State Legislature and subsequent passage, I received countless calls and messages appreciating my efforts.
“Without sounding immodest, all the praises should go to Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, for his audaciousness and political will to take the bold decision of not only sending the bill but ensuring that it was passed with amendments in tandem with his wishes and thoughts,” the lawmaker emphasised.
