In order to cater for the educational needs of Deltans particularly Urhobo indigenes,the Urhobo Progress Union, UPU World-Wide on Saturday displayed its readiness to establish “Mukoro Mowoe” University in Degele-Elume Community in Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.
The President General of Urhobo Progress Union, Olorogun Moses Taiga
disclosed this in a chat with newsmen shortly after working visit to the temporary site of the University in Degele-Elume Community.
Prof. S.W.E. Ibodje stated that they were on investigation to explore possibilities to the temporary site that will lead to the establishment of the university.
He said that the university will put to end the difficulties in securing admissions elsewhere and provide Deltans who have not been to the university as a result of distance the opportunity to go to school.
“That is the benefit we are going to derive of having a university close by where you don’t need to stress what will cost you to feed yourself somewhere.”
