There have been grumblings since the commencement of issuance of employment letters to the then staff of College of Education, Agbor, now the University of Delta, Agbor, which kicked off on Friday, 27th August 2021 to commence the taking off of the University.
All most all the members of staff that collected their employment letters were seen grumbling as they said they have been stepped down by two or three levels below in the University system.
Sequel to the step-down, staff who were rejoicing months ago over the upgrade of the Institution into a full-fledge University has now wished the upgrade never took place.
Some who spoke with our correspondent on anonymity expressed bitterness, pointing out that the step down is sure going to affect their retirement as they said their salaries now will be personal until further notice.
They explained that stepping up again will require further educational qualification, which some said they are not ready to embark on such a difficult task again, owing to the fact that they have already exceeded their income in their expenses.
