The Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, Dr. Kingsley Ashibogwu has assured the management of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku of the completion of ongoing projects in the school.

Ashibogwu gave the assurance in Ogwashi-uku during a familiarisation visit/projects inspection in the institution.

The Commissioner commended the entire staff of the institution for their excellent behaviour towards their duties, adding that he was so proud of them for giving a good account of themselves, the management and Delta State.

He noted that the institution was established to give special education to Deltans, stating that the institution had not disappointed Delta State and the state would not disappoint them in return.

Ashibogwu stated that the State Government had gone beyond what ASUU was suffering nation wide, emphasising that Delta State Universities’ staff are not complaining of salary payments or subvention and that the same should be applicable to the Polytechnics in the state.

“Put your fears aside on the issue of subvention and pension and I assure you that your demands, if not all, most of them would be attended to,” he said.

Earlier, the Rector of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-uku, Prof. Emmanuel Achuenu stated that the institution had recorded tremendous achievements in terms of administration, physical developments and restoration of peace to the campus for teaching and learning.

While welcoming the Commissioner and his entourage to the institution, he appealed that the Multipurpose Auditorium should be completed and there should be a good networking roads in the school premises.

Achuenu conducted the Commissioner, the Permanent Secretary, Dr Anthony Nwokolobia and Directors in the Ministry round the various projects and sites within the institution.

The Commissioner had earlier inspected the SUG Building, the School Multipurpose Auditorium, Department of Civil Engineering Technology, Lath Machines in the School of Mechanical Engineering, the Welding Shop at the Department of Welding and Fabrication Technology and the Art works at the Entrepreneurship Studies and Students Resource Centre.
