The Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare has hailed the Management team of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku, for producing quality face masks for public use amid the coronavirus pandemic.
He revealed this at Ogwashi-Uku on Friday during his working visit to the institution.
According to him, the fact that the Polytechnic has risen to the occasion to do something to curb the spread of the outbreak is very commendable.
He added that he plans to inform his counterparts in Ministries of Basic and Secondary Education, as well as Technical and Vocational Education, so that they can patronize the institution for the masks for their pupils and students.
His words, “I promised to reach out to my counterparts in Ministries of Basic and Secondary Education,as well as Technical and Vocational Education, so that they can patronize the institution for the items for their pupils and students.
“The producers of the face masks are former students of the Polytechnic who were only engaged on Thursday last week and after two days, had produced such large quantity of the items for the public.”
