Dependable sources within the Rectory told our correspondent that the Rector of the Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe Oghara, Prof. Austin Opujor is secretly funding the campaign of the governorship candidate of the All
Progressive Congress, Chief Great Ogboru a development some of the institution staff described as against the civil service rule.

According to our source who pleaded with our correspondent not to be on print, explained that the Rector in a conversation with a prominent stalwart of the All Progressive Congress in his office recently hinted that the rector doled out the sum of ten million naira that day to support Great Ogboru gubernatorial ambition through the APC member (name withheld).

Okowa refused to make him the Provost, College of Marine Technology, Burutu when he won came out first position through election, a situation the rector vowed to deal with the governor by mobilizing against Okowa second term bid both in the school and his local government.
