Gbaregolor community staged protest

  • The people of Gbaregolor community in the Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, on Thursday staged a peaceful protest rejecting the state government’s directive to relocate a campus of the School of Marine Technology to Bomadi and Burutu in Delta South.

    It was learnt that the protest, which started on Wednesday, had the protesters mounting roadblocks along major junctions, including Otu-Jeremi and Ughelli on Friday.

    They, therefore, appealed to the state Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, to reconsider his decision to move the campus.

    Just like the Delta State University, Abraka, which has campuses spread across the three senatorial districts in the state, the School of Marine Technology also has its campuses in Gbaregolor, Kwale and another one at Burutu.

    They claimed that relocating the institution, which has brought life to the community, would slow down the socio-economic activities of the area.

    One of the protesters, Emmanuel Ophiemu, told our correspondent that the state government planned to maintain three campuses which would be evenly distributed to serve the three senatorial districts in the state.

    Benson Omorovwon, a retired Assistant Police Superintendent, said, “When the school authority wrote to the people of Gbaregolor of their challenges of land and a temporary site, the community provided an administrative block, school building and 50 hectares of land for it to take off smoothly. Hence, all admission processes were carried out at the Gbaregolor campus last year, but the reverse is the case this year.

    “As we speak, admission and aptitude test are being carried out at the College of Education, Warri, Bomadi, Agbor, Kwale and Burutu in Delta South and North respectively. Whereas, Gbaregolor that is the only campus in Delta Central senatorial district was left out of this year’s admission.”

    The protesters called on the state government, Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and politicians from the area to intervene on their behalf.
