The newly appointed Head of Department (HOD) of Mass Communication, Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashiuku, Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Akpoveta, has said he will work assiduously to ensure he builds on the achievements of the immediate past head of department.

Dr Akpoveta, who made the remarks in a chat with newsmen in his office at Ogwashi-Uku, lauded the immediate past HOD, Dr Joy Ahon for her successful tenure, describing her as a brilliant academic.

Dr Akpoveta said that the Rector of the institution, Professor Stella Chiemeke, remains one of the best the school has witnessed in terms of development, noting that Professor Chiemeke believes in human capital development.
