Following the intervention of the Executive Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the management of the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, has reviewed the Five Thousand Naira (5, 000) COVID-19 levy to Four Thousand Naira (4,000).

This was contained in an official bulletin issued by the Information and Public Relations Division of the Vice Chancellor’s Office on Tuesday, 13th October, 2020.

Recall that the university administration asked undergraduate students to pay 5,000 and postgraduate students to pay 10,000, saying that the fund raised will be used to upgrade health facilities on the campus to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

However, the postgraduate students are still to pay the stipulated amount of ten thousand naira (10,000).
