The Initiative for Lead­ership and Econom­ic Watch in Nigeria (ILEWN) has commend­ed University of Benin (UNIBEN) over its move to address the skill gap in the country through the mas­sive deployment of Informa­tion Communication Tech­nology (ICT) platforms and facilities to boost learning.
The National Coordina­tor of the group, Mr Splen­dour Agbonkpolor, who gave the commendation while briefing newsmen in Abuja, said Nigeria still lags behind many other nations because of poor attention to education by past adminis­trations.
His words: “Nigeria has failed to take-off as a genu­ine world power because of the persistent neglect of ed­ucation.
“This has led to the pro­duction of poor quality manpower that cannot meet the skill requirement of the country.
“It is pertinent to point out that the Buhari led ad­ministration is set out to correct the ills of the sys­tem that had been so bas­tardised that we had to import low level skilled workers from neighbour­ing countries to do even the most basic tasks.”
While saying that UNIBEN’s Network Oper­ating Centre has been up­graded to world class stan­dard that can take up to 155mb per second to raise large number of qualified manpower, Agbonkpolor said the university’s engi­neering faculty had been re­tooled with modern instruc­tional equipment in order to develop indigenous technol­ogy.
Agbonkpolor also com­mended President Muham­madu Buhari and the Min­ister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu for the qui­et revolution in the educa­tion sector, just as he called in other institutions in the country to study and em­ulate the strategies used to turn around the fortunes of UNIBEN.
‘’We commend President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Education Mal­lam Adamu Adamu for the quiet revolution being car­ried out across board in the education sector in Nigeria and urge other stakehold­ers to join hands with the management of UNIBEN and other looking forward to build the minds that will rebuild Nigeria,” Agbonk­polor said.
