  1. Atuyota says:

    Absolute nonsense!!!!!!! Establish industries to employ the already unemployed graduates and not create ridiculous university.

  2. My dear Excellency Gov of Delta State
    Whilst I sincerely acknowledge your inspiration and passion to enhance Sports Development in our State, respectfully in my candid opinion establishment of a Faculty or department for Sports Development in Delta States nUniversity with satalite campus in any location of your choice at Aniocha would have been Appropriate rather than an Exclusive or Sports Specialist University.
    I strongly believe this is the right thing to do whilst other productive projects that could enhance employment opportunities within Aniocha be given attention as such could be beneficial .
    I sincerely hope you will find my suggestion and observation useful whilst wishing your governance success
