Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji has called on universities in the country to prioritize research efforts aimed at tackling critical challenges confronting this nation as well as producing graduates who are solution providers.

Governor Oyebanji, made the call on Saturday at the 8th convocation ceremony of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti, stressing the need for institutions to produce graduates equipped with the skills and mindset to tackle the pressing problems of the country head-on.

Governor Oyebanji, at the event which was attended by Deputy Senate President, Barau Jibrin, and other eminent personalities, justified the importance of nurturing a generation of problem solvers poised to drive sustainable development. He urged universities to revamp their curricula to emphasize critical thinking, creativity, and entrepreneurship that could provide solution to the problems of this country.

Emphasizing the urgent need for homegrown solution to Nigeria’s divers’ challenges, Oyebanji stressed the importance of equipping students with practical skills and a real-world experience through hands-on learning and industry partnership.

While commending the University for their numerous achievement in about eight years of establishment, the Governor said “I have watched with keen interest the phenomenal growth of this university from 5,041 students to 51,000 in less than eight years as well as the quality of scholarship in the institution.

He congratulated the graduands and charged them to take the advantage of the training and learning they have acquired to contribute their quota to the society.

The Governor assured that his government will continue to collaborate with the institution for greater development and growth of the school.

“As a government, we will continue to collaborate with this institution but I plead with you sir, university must put a lot of emphasis on research, we must produces solution providers, people that will help to solve the problem of this country” the Governor asserted

The highpoint of the event was the conferment of honourary degree of the university on three eminent personalities which include Senate Leader, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele; Senator Solomon Adeola, and Rt Hon Yusuf Adamu.

While Senator Opeyemi Bamidele was conferred with the degree of Doctor of Public laws, Senator Solomon Adeola was conferred with Doctor of Accounting and Rt Hon Yusul Adamu, Doctor of Political science.

Speaking on behalf of the honourees, the Senate majority leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele said they valued the honour conferred on them by the university and expressed their profound appreciation for the recognition bestowed upon them

Even if they provide the solution to Nigeria problem, will politicians ever listen and implement whatever they comes out with?
The answer is NO

You can only give what you have. Unfortunately, aside medicine and law, most university lecturers does not have workplace/ industry experience. They only pass on what the were thought hook, line and sinker.

The sure bet to having a more productive university is to structure the recruitment process to allow for the employment of experienced and seasoned retired professionals. Most organisations peg 60 yrs as the retirement age. Imagine have these seasoned professionals from engineering, Oil and gas, business management teaching and passing their industry experience and trainings to the young undergraduate.

Whenever I read something like this I feel sad for the state of the nation.
You think Nigerian lectures can't complete with their peers in developed world? I have a news for you. Nigerians with Nigerians certificates work at Preston, MIT, Oxford ... Just because your government is useless that doesn't make them useless. They work above their means and you don't have any right to criticize them.
Most universities in Nigeria don't even have stable electricity. Yet you can criticize them.
Stay in your cave and keep quiet.

I wish they can do, but they don’t about that. They care only about fast sessions, planning for exams without cover the course outlines or thorough learning

Where will the solution providers work to provide solution when all the critical and juicy positions are occupied either by your family members, side chicks or people purely based on connections and not merit. Nigeria is overflowing with solution providers that are buried by our corrupt symtem.

Hehe lead the way nah

Thats the problem with our so called profs and so called educated illiterates. They will give a recommendation that is ideal yet impractical in our Nigeria of today. We will bring the solution of UK that is a working society to apply in Nigeria without even modifying it to address our peculiarities. Its like they just advice to show that they went to school in the UK and not to provide the solutions that can work for us!
Re: Oyebanji Tasks Universities On Producing Solution Providers by omoredia: 2:25pm On Feb 11
A society that takes education as a 'class thing' is not a society driven by practical knowledge!

Every field have career and non-career work. The young graduates that intend to become lecturers will fall under the category of career lecturers while those with industry experience will fall under the non-career lecturers. I hope this addressed your concern?

Later in the day, meet him in Atlas eating àlàké(goat head) with the states funds.
Shameless politicians at the state levels that can't think out of the box than wait for the monthly allocations to chop. Ordinary plastic producing factory no dey their plans
