Students of Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro, and Delta state were in wild jubilation over the removal of the rector of the institution, Rev. Prof. Job Akpodiete.
The students who went as far as using broom to sweep off his footprints described the outgone rector as a very wicked man.
According to some of the students, they were sweeping away the ‘bad spirit’ of the outgone rector from the school.Recall that the state government early this year approved the upgrade of the school to a University of Science and Technology alongside two other institutions in the state.
The move by the state government also led to the removal of the rector from office to give way to the newly appointed Vice Chancellor who happened to be a former rector of the institution and one loved by majority of both students and workforce.
