The Nigeria’s Delta State University (DELSU) has allegedly constructed two toilets with N36 million.
Sahara Reporters, which reported this, claimed that the provost used N36m to build two toilets in the institution funded by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.
Speaking under the condition of anonymity, a Senior Staff reported that “The provost concluded everything with the contractors before going into the bidding process. Warri College of Education is synonymous with corruption and other fraudulent practices.
