Delta State mustn’t give land to Miyetti Allah
The Delta State Government must
further clear the air on whether or not it is planning to give land to Miyetti Allah or herdsmen.

Another Protest Begins In Imo
SCORES of students of the Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwo, on Tuesday, blocked the Owerri-Port Harcourt highway in protest.
Carrying placards, the undergraduates accused the state government and the school’s management of frustrating their academic programmes.
The enraged students said nearly one year after the state government announced the relocation of the school to Omuma, the hometown of the State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, the academic programme had yet to commence at the new site.
One of the students, who gave his name as Sampson, said, “This is one year that the governor announced the relocation of the HND departments to Omuma, yet nothing has happened. There is no single structure in Omuma to show that the academic programme will commence there anytime soon. We are giving the school two weeks to fix it or we will embark on a continuous protest.”
