According to the letter by the governor announcing the introduction of the bills urged the lawmakers to give required legislative acts to the three bills.

Agbor is a few metre drive from Owa Oyibu where Governor Okowa has also established teaching institute for teachers in the state. Anwai is a village near Asaba, the state capital, with a campus of Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka. Both are in Delta North part of the state.

While the Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro, one of the polytechnics established during the administration of former Governor James Ibori, will be upgraded to Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro.

Governor Okowa in the letter to the House said the proposed laws are to upgrade three existing higher institutions in the state to statues of Universities.

Oborevwori clarified that the governor in the letter posited that the change was as a result of the continuous increase in the number of Deltans jostling for space into the few established universities due to increase in the number of admission seekers.

He further claimed that the decision was also to keep up with the federal government decision to upgrade educational and technical education in the country by providing degree-awarding institutions in these areas.

The three bills have been slated for first reading on Wednesday, 28th January 2021.

The move is coming amidst concerns from stakeholders that the state-owned institutions were still poorly funded.
