Management of the Delta State University, DELSU, Abraka, has been challenged to sustain the institution’s high academic standard, so as to justify government’s huge investment.
Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Youth Development, Hope George, gave the charge when he paid a courtesy call on the Vice Chancellor, Professor Victor Peretemode, in his office at Abraka.
George, who said the tenure of the vice chancellor has brought a lot of transformation to the school, urged him to ensure that the moral training of students and discipline are not compromised.
He said graduands of DELSU have always excelled in their profession due to the knowledge gained while in school and assured that government will continue to provide the necessary tools needed for the school to tower above other citadels of learning in the country.
The governor’s aide said his visit to Abraka town was to meet with youths and other stakeholders so as to ensure that peace and unity reign in the university community and the entire town.
George called on youths in the state to tap into the entrepreneurial skills acquisition programme of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to enable them overcome poverty and also create wealth.
He said the present administration has beamed its light on development of schools, hospitals, roads, agriculture, infrastructure and human capital programmes and sued for the support of all in turning the prosperity for all Deltans dream into a reality.
Professor Peretemode thanked Governor Okowa for his support to the school and assured him that the ongoing reforms will usher in a new dawn.
He described George as a good ambassador of Delta youths and advised youths not to allow anything to derail them from getting to the pinnacle of their career.
He said the university has a cordial relationship with Oriarivie community and appealed to all to uphold peace for development to thrive in all sectors.
Those who accompanied George on the visit were Special Advisers to the Governor on Political Affairs, Olorogun Kent Akigho Okiemute, Youth Development, Owumi Lawrence and Mr Austin Ojakovo.
