The chairman of the board of directors at the Rufus Ebegba Centre for Leadership and Environmental Sustainability, Dr. Rufus Ebegba has praised the Federal Government for the establishment of the Federal University of Agriculture and Technology (FUAT) in Kwale, Delta State.
In a statement released through his media office in Abuja, Ebegba commended the government for its decision to establish the university in Kwale, as announced by Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege. He noted that this development has significant implications for the people of Ndokwa and Delta north senatorial district, as it is the first grade ‘A’ institution established in the region by the state and Federal Government since 1960.
Ebegba expressed his gratitude to Sen. Omo-Agege for fulfilling the promise he made during the gubernatorial campaigns, demonstrating his commitment to the region.
The former director-general of the National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) congratulated Delta north on the establishment of the Federal University and Ndokwa people on the selection of Kwale as its location. He regarded it as a remarkable parting gift from President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, emphasising the positive impact it will have on the development of Ndokwa Nation and the improvement of Delta north senatorial district.
Ebegba highlighted the significance of education as one of the greatest gifts available to humanity. He emphasised that the establishment of this permanent institution will contribute to the advancement of Ndokwa and Delta north senatorial district. He concluded by praising the efforts that led to the realisation of the university and called on Deltans to embrace this achievement and show support for the incoming administration of Sen. Bola Tinubu and Sen. Kashim Shettima, to be sworn in on May 29, 2023.
Ebegba urged Deltans to “seize this joyful moment and reciprocate the goodwill” by extending their unwavering support to the incoming administration. He highlighted that the APC had worked tirelessly to ensure the establishment of the university in Delta State and, therefore, it is essential to demonstrate solidarity with the party by supporting the incoming Tinubu administration. By doing so, other parts of Delta State can also benefit from similar developments, he assured.
