lta State Ministry of Higher Education yesterday debunked a report that most of the tertiary institutions in the state were illegal, but acknowledged the existence of  privately-owned illegal training institutes.

In a statement signed by the ministry's Public Relations Officer, Etetafia  U. S.,  the ministry noted that “at no time  did  the  Commissioner for Higher Education say that  no fewer than 95 per cent of  privately-owned tertiary institutions that offer degree  programmes on academics and professional courses in Delta State were operating without government approval.

“The  commissioner said government knew those privately owned training outfits that are not registered with the state and offer academic and professional courses at post secondary level, including computer training schools that award certificate  and diploma in information technology; catering and hotel management, colleges of fashion and design, as well as those of cosmetology.”
