Delta State is popularly called the Finger of God - a phrase coined by the current Governor, His Excellency, Dr Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, celebrating the state as one of the true success stories of the Niger-Delta Province. According to him, “The victory of all elections and Peace in Delta state couldn’t have been but by the divine intervention and touch of the finger of God”. Enriched with many mineral resources, especially crude oil, the state also boasts a sizeable investment in agriculture. It is divided into twenty-five local government areas with diverse ethnic groups giving a richness in culture and tradition that makes the state unique. Delta state is not left out in the area of sports, being the birthplace of several accomplished sports men and women excelling on both national and international levels. In terms of education, Delta state is at the forefront with an aggressive approach to teaching and learning at all levels.
Small wonder it is called the FINGER OF GOD, as a state that has been divinely blessed with natural and human resources thriving till this present day.
