Prof. Elo Ibagere, the Provost of Delta State University Oleh Campus, urged the Delta State Government to assist in completing the Engineering Faculty buildings that have been entirely abandoned.

He warned that the longer the buildings remain in their current state, the more they will deteriorate, and the more funds will be required to finish them.

He further emphasized the need to complete the buildings swiftly to maintain the reputation of the Faculty of Engineering.
