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, nor 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, FHA Lugbe, Games Village, 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 UNICAF to expose African students to millions of dollars worth of Scholarships opportunities. 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.
We just concluded a partnership arrangement with America Institute of Foreign Study AIFS to be their Nigerian counterpart. Deo Gratias African American Online school is also in partnership with American High school
I am a Fellow with ICPAN and Vice Chairman Planning and Implementation Committee proposed Anioma Open University Agbor Delta State
I am happily married to Dr. Mrs Odabi
My first two sons are Doctors and Managers in America one is a Finance Manager and recently was appointed a notary public in the city of Las Vegas by the state of Nevada, The third one is a 2nd year under graduate student in the University of Las Vegas
My grandson also lives in Las Vegas
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.
