Delta Assembly Passes Bill to Amend Delta State Polytechnic Burutu

By Pleasant Johnson

The bill for a law to amend the Delta State Polytechnic, Burutu 2023 and other related purposes has been passed into law.

During Thursday’s sitting, the bill was read for the second and third time and unanimously passed by all members of the house.

The bill sought to add the word “maritime” to the name of the polytechnic and was moved to be passed into law by the deputy majority leader, Hon. Festus Okoh.

He emphasized the importance of the “maritime” sector remaining an attraction and maintaining its professionalism, as initially intended.

The primary advantage of the polytechnic, according to the consensus in the house, is that students graduate as maritime professionals, which sets it apart from other polytechnics.

Thus, when assented to, the Delta State Polytechnic, Burutu will be known as the “Delta State Maritime Polytechnic, Burutu”.
