There is an end in sight to issues when a university community tailors its programmes towards solving the challenges confronting society.

The Vice-Chancellor, McPherson University, Seriki Sotayo, Ogun State, Professor Francis Igbasan stated this while receiving the Zonal Director, Radio Nigeria, Ibadan Zonal Station, Mr Dominic Mokikan and top management staff of the corporation on a working visit to the university campus.

Professor Igbasan who gave the McPherson University success experiences explained that the twelve-year-old faith-based private university had groomed solution providers equipped with technology and entrepreneurial skills while emphasising that partnership with Radio Nigeria would further skill up the students for optimum performance.

The Vice-Chancellor was joined by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olatunji Okesola, Acting Registrar, Mr Olufemi Adebowale, Bursar, Mr Ademola Osanyinro and the University Librarian, Dr Abiola Omotoso noted that the school which had produced seven graduating sets runs twenty-four academic programmes fully accredited by the National Universities Commission, NUC, and professional bodies, adding that its unique selling point was the flexible payment system with four installments to beat the current economic realities.

On his part, the Zonal Director of Radio Nigeria Ibadan Zonal Station, Mr Dominic Mokikan commended the VC and his team for incubating solution providers whose skills would turn around the Nigerian society.

Mr Mokikan noted that continued synergy between the town and gown would ameliorate common problems confronting the masses.
