On Thursday, March 01, 2012, just a day before the Supreme Court ruling, the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan is billed to visit the Delta State University, Abraka. Arrangements have been concluded for his commissioning of some projects during the visit. These projects include:

1. 4 No Blocks of Lecture Theatre – DELSU IGR Funded Project.

2. Institute of Education Block and Offices – DELSU IGR Funded Project.

3. DELSU Investment Ltd Table and Sachet Water Plant – DELSU IGR Funded Project.

4. DELSU Oils – DELSU IGR Funded Project.

5. Examination Centre (Computerised Script Marking System) – DELSU IGR Funded Project.

6. Network of Roads – DELSU IGR Funded Project.

7. E-Library – Situated within existing library and government only provided internet-linked computers

Sadly, apart from the internet-linked computers in the E-Library, the Delta State Government did not contribute a kobo to any of the projects to be commissioned. All the projects were executed from fees paid by students; what is now commonly referred to as Internally Generated Revenue (IGR). As is usual with the sycophantic media and jobbers around our politicians, these projects are likely to be appropriated as part of “transformation” of the State by the Uduaghan Administration. It is sadder to note that all through 2011, not one kobo was released to the Delta State University for capital projects. Attached are pictures of some of the IGR-financed projects that the Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan is to commission.

The pictures of uncompleted buildings are being constructed and financed by grants from the Education Trust Fund. The TERTIARY EDUCATION TRUST FUND (TETFUND) was established by the Federal Government as an intervention agency under the Education Tax Act No. 7 of 1993 and amended by Education Tax (Amendment) Act No. 40 0f 1998; with project management to improve the quality of Education in Nigeria. The current stage of completion of all the on-going ETF projects have been achieved within two years.

Unfortunately, the only projects initiated by the Uduaghan Administration (a Faculty of Science Building and the Senate Building) are still at foundation levels some three to four years after work commenced on them. The Faculty of Science Building site is completely overgrown with weeds and couldn’t be photographed while the picture with heaps of granite in the foreground is the construction site of the Senate Building. These two projects add to the list of uncompleted projects that is becoming the hallmark of the present administration in Delta State.

    Oil money has really caused a lot of problem, in the state and national level. It is a shame that most of these governors prefer to cart away the allocated funds meant for development, and the provision of infrastructures in their various state;, instead of improving the lot of the impoverished people. Shame indeed!!!

    Let us be sincere with ourselves, as Uduaghan done any project in delta central before even delta state in general. Pls all our hope is in God and supreme court. Becus they eat their cake and have with there various state money they afford our judges any amount of bribe to win case brought b4 them. Ibori case was a eye opener to other nation judiciary to tell you how corrupt our judges and judiciary. Uduaghan as done nothing in the central not even delta in particular becus he appoint the vice chancellor he as no words to utter mr else he will be fire. But Abraka people should stand on their ground like what happen at jeremi, where the people stand on their ground for the commissioning of road constructed by SPDC wanted to be commission by him and his deputy. So i’m appealing to students and indigens of abraka not to allow he and his entourage to reap what they not sow. Uduaghan as not done anything in delta state since his forcefull leadership in delta state.

    Why do we bother about Uduaghan. The man admitted that his goal was to be the personal physician to the governor. All of a sudden he was landed with commissioner for health. After destroying the health sector, he eventually emerged as governor. I am sorry, that man cannot run a local council. He is absolutely too dull to be a medical doctor not to talk of leading Deltans. What a pity.

    Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has commissioned several multi million naira projects executed by Delta State University, Abraka (DELSU) with a promise to look at the possibiltyof releasing funds directly to the University for its Capital Projects.

    Dr. Uduaghan who described the cost of the projects commissioned to be comparatively lower than those by the State government commended the University for prudent management of resources.

    He said he was excited over the projects which the university used its internally generated revenue to execute adding that the projects were concrete testimony of internally generated revenue.

    The governor promised to work out the modalities for the release of funds directly to the university explaining that he would critically examine the process and see how it would work.

    His words “This is a pleasant moment and this is a vivid account of internally generated revenue. These projects are cheaper than the ones the state government executes and we are going to consider the possibilty of releasing funds directly to the University for its Capital Projects.”

    Dr. Uduaghan challenged other tertiary institutions in the state to emulate the effort of Delta State University which he described as a show piece.

    Describing internally generated revenue as a contentious issue, the governor charged other institutions to acquaint themselves of internally generated revenue related acquisition.

    He called on the different labour bodies in the university to continue to ensure that peace reigned in the university so that academic programmes were not disrupted.

    The governor enjoined them to always use dialogue in resolving issues instead of embarking on strike which he described as counter productive.

    Explaining further, he said “ it will not pay you to go on strike because if you use dialogue you will receive attention quicker than when you go on strike. So l call on you ASUU, SSANU and NASU to continue to use dialogue for greater success”.

    Dr. Uduaghan who later addressed the students urged them to shun cultism and examination malpractices.He said the students have the potential to rise to the height of their profession when they work hard.

    The governor explained that they could work hard to study a PHD programme and come out successful, if they did not use the short cut but employ honest means to gain admission.

    In his speech the vice chancellor of the University, Prof. Eric Arubayi said the university used its internally generated revenue to construct projects to enable it fit into the global concept of a university.

    Prof. Arubayi outlined the projects executed to include: E- library, road network, six lecture halls, staff offices and DELSU Oil among others.

    He commended the governor for approving the projects but however appealed to the governor to call the contractors handling the construction of the faculty of Science lecture theatre, faculty of Law and faculty of Engineering to order so that they could complete construction work.
