Julius Oweh - Asaba
Tertiary institutions in delta state have challenged to be transparent and accountable in the usage of internal generated revenue and other funds in their care.

The charge was given on Thursday by the delta state governor Dr Ifeanyi Okowa while commissioning the multimillion 14,000 seating capacity stadium of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro.

The governor said that Dr Jacob Oboreh has proved that funds could be well utilized and challenged other heads of higher institutions of learning to do same, adding ` I will soon be visiting the other institutions to see what they are doing with their IGR and other funds`.

He congratulated the rector, Dr Oboreh on the stadium and other facilities provided in the school through internal generated revenue, saying that it was obvious that there was good and clear thinking in the management of resources.

Speaking earlier, the rector of the institution said the achievements were due to the co-operation between the governing council and the management team of the school.

Dr Oboreh specially thanked the governor for the one hundred million Naira given to school last year towards the completion of the stadium.

He, however, called on the governor to give approval for the recruitment of academic staff to meet the growing needs of the school.

Oboreh appealed to the governor, `if some of the state government projects in the polytechnic such as the 1,000 capacity multipurpose auditorium and block of the engineering workshops are completed`.

In a brief remark, the Ovie of Ozoro, His Royal Majesty Anthony Uvietobore Ogbogbo stated that the Ozoro people were very proud of Oboreh saying that `I am happy beyond description`.

The royal father regretted that there was no legal provision for second tenure for the rector but implored the Governor to give him higher responsibilities so that he would continue to serve the state.

In all nine projects were commissioned including model banking hall for , fire fighting station building and two kilometres campus road.`
