According to him, 12 new programmes in the existing faculties will be created immediately in the area of science and technology, adding that the  programmes being relocated will not in anyway be a set back to the University.

“In addition to these new 12 programmes, three faculties of Basic Medical Sciences, Pharmacy and Health Sciences have been approved for the university by the Governor. “

“The Isoko and Ozoro people should accept the relocation in good faith and let me assure all concerned that we will give equal opportunities to all Deltans in terms of admission and other considerations.”

“The Isoko people who are major stakeholders in the University have met with the Governor and he has opened up his plans for the rapid development of the University.”

“I therefore call on all our people to be calm and allow the Governor to unfold his massive development plans for our nascent University and the overall educational sector in our state.”
