Governor Sheriff Oborevwori has said the Faculty of Management Sciences of the University of Science and Technology, Ozoro, Isoko North Local Government Area will take off at the Orerokpe Technical College, Orerokpe, in Okpe Local Government Area.
Governor Oborevwori disclosed this in an interview with newsmen shortly after inspecting facilities at the school.
He said the Ministry of Technical Education would hand over the facilities at the College in Orerokpe to the Ministry of Higher Education for a seamless take off of the Faculty of Management Sciences of the University, which was still under construction.
The governor noted that the Governing Council of the University recently approved the Faculty of Management Sciences at Orerokpe, adding that the Technical College, Orerokpe, was proposed as a campus of the Faculty.
He said the visit to site was to ascertain the extent of job done which would help to proffer the way forward for early completion of the job.
The governor clarified that it was better to create campuses rather than create more universities, pointing out that Delta State was the hub of education in Nigeria.
He noted that the Delta State University, Abraka, could not absorb all qualified Deltans who were seeking admission into the school, adding that it was for such reason, that the state government decided to float three universities simultaneously.
Governor Oborevwori disclosed that some of the projects in the Orerokpe Campus of the University of Science and Technology would be completed before the end of October, adding that new projects would spring up soon.
