ABOUT DEO GRATIAS POLYTECHNIC

The dream was envisioned several years ago but consummated in 2019 with the approval granted by Delta Sate Ministry of Higher Education.

Correspondence has opened and is on with the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Kaduna and NUC Abuja, to commence resource inspection pursuant to accreditation of the courses of study in Deo Gratias Polytechnic.

There is a campus in Asaba where a multipurpose structure is under construction in the GRA Phase 3, Core Area, along Ambassador Godson Echegile Street.

A 10 – hectare virgin land has also been acquired at Alisor, Agbor, for immediate commencement of the development of the permanent site. This site is less than 5 minutes drive from the Agbor/Benin Highway.

Of keen interest is the floating of a Leadership and Business School, in Asaba in collaboration with an internationally acclaimed Faculty from St Vincent and the Grenadines in South America.

Proprietor’s Welcome Message

You are welcome to Deo Gratias Polytechnic platform.

I am Professor George Odabi

I come from a family where my parents are passionate, very passionate, about education.

My mother, Lady Doctor C I Odabi, with the active support of my late father (resting in peace), started off with a Nursery group within the staff quarters of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in 1970. I was blessed to be in that first class.

That seed grew to become a primary and secondary school.

Having been born into and bred in that sector, I did not ever think of anywhere else to develop, not invest, on my return to Nigeria after a sojourn in the USA.

Hence, today, we have Deo Gratias International Group of Schools in Garki, Gwarimpa, Holywood and Mabushi all in Abuja.

Being an indigene of Agbor, it would be antithetical, if not absurd, for one of such seeds not to be planted in my home soil. And so we have Deo Gratias School at Agbor.

All the schools have the full complement of crèche, nursery, primary and secondary tiers.

Not done, we are here landed on Deo Gratias Polytechnic platform.

Deo Gratias Polytechnic has the vision and mission to lift Nigerian youths to unimaginable levels.

We have a working arrangement with University of the People, California, USA. The ramifications will unfold with time and you will be very lucky to be beneficiaries.

My dear students, actually my people, as I prefer to call you, you will be exposed to an exchange programme with the University of the People, California, USA.

I am not an investor but a developer in the education industry. You will be an envy of your peers elsewhere.

You are welcome to Deo Gratias Polytechnic.

Professor George Odabi. MD/Ceo
