Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in the letter said the proposed laws are to upgrade three existing higher institutions in the state to universities.

They include College of Education Agbor, to Delta State University of Education, Agbor, Delta State University, Anwai Campus, to Delta State University of Science and Agriculture, Anwai and Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro, to Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro.

Governor Okowa stated that the move was as a result of continuous increase in the number of Deltans jostling for space into the few existing universities due to increase in the number of admission seekers.

He further stated that the decision was also to meet up with the Federal Government’s decision to upgrade educational and technical education in the country by having degree awarding institutions in these area.

The Deputy Majority Leader, Honourable Oboro Preyor, in a motion, moved for the House to receive the three Bills for further legislative process.

The first reading of the Bills has been slated for Wednesday 28th January, 2021.
