Isoko Professionals Group Rejects Removal of Mgt Courses from Delta Varsity

The Isoko Professionals Association (IPA), a non-partisan group consisting of Isoko sons from Delta State, has rejected the removal of management courses from the Delta State University of Science and Technology (DSUST) in Ozoro, Isoko North Local Government Area Delta State.

Reports emanated last week that eight courses under the Faculty of Administration and Management have been signed out by the Governing Council of the University and moved to Orerokpe, to be known as Delta State University of Science and Technology, Orerokpe Campus.

The courses as contained in the report to be moved are Business Administration, Accountancy, Banking & Finance, Marketing, Entrepre-neurship, Office Information & Management, Transport & Marine Technology  and Public Administration.

Reacting to the development in a statement, the President of IPA,Benson Anaro,  warned that removing those courses from the school will deplete it and ultimately turn it to a glorified university.

He said: “As a major stakeholder in Isoko and indeed, Delta State, we reject the removal of the management courses from the Delta State University of Science and Technology in Ozoro. We believe that removing those courses will further under develop the Isoko nation, which has contributed immensely both politically and economically to the state government.”

While urging the State Governor, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori and the Governing Council to reconsider and reverse the decision, the association noted that the consequences of the action will push the Isoko nation to the back seat of education and the economy.
