WARRI — GOVERNOR Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has said that he bears no grudge against any staff of the College of Education, Warri for giving evidence against him in the course of litigations challenging his re-election as governor for a second tenure at the election tribunal.
He also said that he supported the demolition of shanties around the Collage because it “encourages criminalities, prostitution and other social vices.”
He noted that the state government will build hostels for the school as it was not safe and proper for students to live in an unhealthy environment, which explaineed why the government was spending so much on the education sector because of the priority accorded the sector.
Governor Uduaghan at the 19th convocation ceremony of the College in Warri, said that rumours that he bore grudge against some staff was misconceived as he had forgiven all those that stood against him during his trying period.
The ceremony which also featured the award for Education Excellence on three pioneer students now Professors, Nwose Chukwuma, Alexander Ohunyon and Benjamin Okaba in different fields of studies and business was witnessed by a cross section of important personalities and the representative of the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse 11.
