Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has commissioned a block of hostel built by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) with an assurance that President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, state governors and stakeholders are working to create job opportunities for graduates.

Speaking today while commissioning the hostel at the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Benin City, Edo State, the governor decried what job seekers experienced during the last recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Immigration Service, observing that it was a sad incident.

While noting that unemployed issue is a challenge all over the world, Governor Uduaghan emphasised that those in authority in the country are committed to create job opportunities, asserting that job seekers would not gather at stadium again because of job interview.

He also stated that the hostel built and donated to the UNIBEN by the NDDC was a clear sign that the lost glory of the university is being restored.

Dr. Uduaghan used the occasion to charge students not to engage in cult related activities, stating: “I have not seen any student belonging to cult that made a First Class in the university.”

He disclosed that funds have been released for scholarship programmes for Deltans who made First Class in the university, adding that funds have also been released for bursary for students.

The governor urged students to be committed to their studies and shun anything that is inimical to the society and will affect their studies.

Earlier, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of NDDC, Sir Bassey Dan-Abia, had said the hostel was one out of the 19 university hostel projects the commission is executing across the nine states of the Niger Delta.

“It is my firm belief and conviction that with the provision of this 174-room, 696-bed, state-of-the-art hostel, we would have contributed immensely to easing the over-crowding of hostels witnessed by our children in this ivory tower and increased the students’ access to decent accommodation in this university campus,” Sir Dan-Abia said.

In his speech, Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of UNIBEN, Senator Effiong Dickson-Mbong, observed that NDDC has fulfilled its mandate as an interventionist agency stating that they desire to make UNIBEN the best university in the world in terms of moral upbringing and physical infrastructure.
