Higher Education

The Ministry of Higher Education was established as a separate Ministry from the Ministry of Education in October, 2005 to encourage and accommodate the increasing desire of indigenes and visitors alike for qualitative tertiary education in Delta State. It was immediately charged with the responsibility of initiating and implementing educational policies for tertiary institutions in the State. At present, there are seven (7) State owned tertiary educational institutions in the State viz;

  1. Delta State University with Campuses in Abraka, Asaba and Oleh;
  2. College of Education, Agbor;
  3. College of Education, Warri;
  4. College of Physical Education, Mosogar;
  5. Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro;
  6. Delta State Polytechnic, Oghara;
  7. Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwasi-Uku

All the tertiary Institutions in Delta State mentioned above except the first three were established between 1999 and 2007.  One of the overriding considerations in our establishing those institutions was the desire to bridge the yawning gap between the number of Deltans who sought to acquire tertiary Education and those who actually got placement.
At the inception of this present administration in 2007, there has been an increase in the tempo of activities for the advancement of higher education, through massive infrastructural development within these newly established institutions. The State Government is in the process of establishing of four more Polytechnics to be sited in Aboh, Sapele, Abirigbodo and Bomadi.
This has therefore created a harmonious flow of policy and objectives and implementation programmes from the last administration to the present in the area of higher Education, allowing for the educational well-being of the citizens of Delta State.
