By Augustine Akanigha

Delta State House of Assembly has passed the bill to amend the Delta State University Law 1998 Cap D47 of Delta State 2008 and  other matters connected therewith, into law.

The bill was passed during Tuesday, 15th June, 2021 plenary at the state house of assembly.

In a unanimous debate, led by the Deputy Majority Leader, Hon. Kenneth Preyor, he argued saying: “Arising from the creation of the Dennis Osadebe University, which was formerly Awai Campus to the Delta State University Abraka, there is urgent need to amend some few sections of the Delta State University Law 1998 Cap D47, which means the Delta State University Abraka will now have two campuses which is Abraka (Main) Campus and Oleh Campus as against the previous three campuses.”

Hon. Preyor then listed the following faculties that will now be located at the Abraka main campus, namely, education, arts, social sciences, pure sciences, medical sciences, agriculture sciences, management sciences and environmental sciences. while that of Oleh Campus will be for law and engineering faculties.

He added that by the commencement of the new law, the Facilities of Agriculture, Management Sciences, and Environmental Sciences will begin to operate fully from Abraka campus.

The deputy majority leader then moved that the bill be now read the third time and pass, which was seconded by Hon. Peter Uviejitobor, member representing Udu State Constituency.

The Speaker, Rt Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, thanks members for their efforts in seeing to the successful amendment and speedy passage of the bill into law, explaining that it would further straighten the Delta State University, Abraka.

    Why wasting time still keeping law and engineering faculties in Oleh when they have a full fledged university in Ozoro already.
