Our checks reveal that the admission forms officially sold for N19, 000, but were sold by agents of the school to parents as high as N35, 000.

As a matter of fact, most parents who bought forms late were not given past questions booklet that was supposed to be part of the admission form. As against the state nursing school forms that were sold for only N15,000 without agents.

The Delta State College of Health Technology, Ofuoma has become  notorious  for all kinds of corruption without any form of checks even as parents call Governor Sherriff Obirevwiri to embark on immediate face lit of the school.

A source told this reporter that the racketeering of admission and extortions of students by lecturers are well known to the school authority as they are beneficiary of the rot eating deep in the college.

The indiscriminate sale of admission forms to raise money without commensurate standard facilities in the school calls for concern.
