WELCOME ADDRESS BY THE RECTOR, DELTA STATE POLYTECHNIC, OGWASHI-UKU, PROFESSOR STELLA CHIEMEKE, KSM, FNCS, FRHD, FRAESON, AT THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE 1ST NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NIGERIAN POLYTECHNICS AND NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT & ART AND ENGINEERING CRAFT EXHIBITION HOLDING ON JUNE 13, 2018 AT EVENT CENTER, DELTA STATE POLYTECHNIC, OGWASHI-UKU, DELTA STATE.
It is my singular pleasure and honour to welcome you all to this unique occasion of the opening ceremony of the 1st National Conference on Nigerian Polytechnics and National Development & Art and Engineering Craft Exhibition with the theme “REPOSITIONING THE NIGERIAN POLYTECHNICS TO MEET CURRENT ECONOMIC NEEDS”.
The theme of this Conference was carefully chosen based on our strong belief that the polytechnic education subsector as an untapped goldmine could sufficiently bail Nigeria out of the current economic quagmire and enable industrial diversification of the national economy.
The choice of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-uku for this important conference could not have been any better considering the abundant human resources of Delta State coupled with the youth strength of good people of Delta State and the peaceful environment of the State under the dynamic leadership of Your Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, the Executive Governor of Delta State.
This conference has attracted many participants and speakers from government, industry and academia who will speak on the theme and sub-theme of the conference. It is expected that technical presentations featuring new horizons and new challenges facing the Polytechnic education would be received. The conference will afford the Institution the opportunity to exhibit their art and engineering craft products and services.
