The exit of a Rector after Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro was upgraded to the University of Science and Technology was followed by a mild drama showing students celebrating.
The students were seen in viral videos sweeping the Main Gates of the school to express their excitement at the exit of the rector.
The Delta State Government previously announced plans to transform College of Education, Agbor, into Delta State University of Education, Agbor, Delta State University, Anwai Campus, into Delta State University of Science and Agriculture, Anwai, and Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro into Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro.
Governor Ifeanyi Okowa declared this in separate bills to the state legislature, which were read on the floor by the legislature’s speaker, Sheriff Oborevwori, in March 2021.

Reacting to the video, some people opined that they don’t see those sweeping as students, according to them, they are some non academic staff who weren’t paid during the rector’s tenure and decided to express their joy after his exit.
See some reactions from Nigerians who chanced upon the video:
