Market Women and Youths Protest University Relocation - Delta Tense

The atmosphere in Ozoro community, located in Isoko North Local Government Area of Delta State, is filled with palpable tension as hundreds of women and youths have taken to the streets, blocking the Ozoro/Kwale/Asaba Expressway.

According to reports from Vistanaij Media, the protesters are expressing their dissatisfaction with the relocation of the Faculty of Business Administration from the Delta State University of Science and Technology to Orerokpe community, which is the local government area of the current Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori.

They argue that this relocation will significantly impact the economic livelihood of their town.

The protesters are brandishing various placards with messages demanding the return of the faculty to its original location within the institution.

At the time of reporting, the youth demonstrators were stationed at the Owhelogbo junction, while the women were engaged in spirited dancing throughout the community.

Travellers heading towards Asaba and Onitsha in Anambra State have been compelled to seek alternative routes due to the road blockade.

The protesters are urgently calling upon Governor Oborevwori to reverse the relocation and bring back the faculty to the main campus of the university.
