Group applauds Okowa for upgrading Ozoro Polytechnic to varsity


Ifeanyi Okowa

The Ozoro Patriots, a socio-cultural group comprising Ozoro indigenes of diverse professional backgrounds, has commended Delta State Governor, Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, for upgrading three higher institutions in the state to full-fledged universities. 

In a letter signed by its President, Oke Michael and addressed to the governor, the group particularly commended Governor Okowa for upgrading the Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro to Delta State University of Science and Technology.


“Not only will this gesture address the yearnings of Isoko and Delta youths for quality education, but will also boost the economic development of Ozoro Kingdom in particular, and Isoko nation in general. 

“This singular action, among others, is a testament to your purposeful and insightful leadership, which has, no doubt, placed the state ahead of others in development parameters. It has further buttressed your quest for quality education.

“We at Ozoro Patriots and the entire Ozoro Kingdom see no better expression of your transformation agenda than in the visible development projects, like those under review across the state,” the letter reads. 

The group noted that at a time when it had become more difficult for the youths to secure admission into the nation’s universities, Governor Okowa’s foresight in upgrading the institutions to full-fledged universities could not have come at a better time. 

“We wish to tell our Isoko compatriots that they have collectively demonstrated that we are a united nationality desirous of peace and the tenets of enduring commonality our forebears passed on to us. We are ready to champion inter-clan relationships to engender peace and tranquillity in Isoko land.” 

“On behalf of Ozoro Kingdom, we say ‘Thank You’ for your good heart towards the Ozoro Kingdom and the entire Isoko Nation. It is said that when the righteous rule, the people rejoice. We have no doubt that your achievements will leave the footprints of your administration permanently in the sands of time,” it added. 

The group pledged its support for the Okowa administration, adding: “You can count on us at ensuring the prompt and seamless resumption of academic activities in the newly established university. 

“Like Oliver Twist, we appeal for the timely completion of the Ozoro Main Market, which was initiated by your government. The rains are fast approaching and our mothers and market women will appreciate the new shelter the market will provide them.”
