The former governor of Osun State and Ex-National Chairman, All Progressives Congress, Chief Adebisi Akande has advocated the development of intensive science-based technology in Nigeria’s educational institutions towards improving the nation’s economy.
Chief Akande made the call shortly after receiving Honourary doctorate degree award in Public Administration conferred on him by Ekiti State University, Ado -Ekiti alongside the speaker, Osun state House of Assembly, Mr Timothy Owoeye who was also conferred with an award of recognition.
The elder statesman who is also Asiwaju of Ila Orangun submitted that the curriculum of the country’s learning institutions should be designed in a way that would provide employment opportunities for the undergraduates and as well as make them self-reliant.
The Asiwaju of Ila Orangun pointed out that the lack of science-based technology could not guarantee abundance and the needed development.
In a remark, the Vice-Chancellor, Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, Professor Edward Olanipekun said the award was in recognition of their outstanding and unique contributions to society, Osun state and the Nation as a whole.
Governor Adegboyega Oyetola was represented at the event by his Deputy, Mr Benedict Alabi, while the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji and other State Executive members graced the convocation and conferment of the award ceremony.
