The governor’s assistant emphasized that the goal of the techpreneur and agropreneur programs is to constructively engage students in becoming employment creators rather than job seekers.

He asked for a sizable plot of land where the hydroponic farming method would be used in an effort to benefit the school as well as the pupils.

Regarding techpreneurship, Peterson stated that students will receive training from a group of ICT specialists, with a focus on cyber security, digital marketing, and other areas to maximize their abilities.

In her answer, the university’s vice chancellor, professor Stella Chiemeke, praised Peterson for his deeply felt affection for University of Delta.
