Achievers Varsity Holds 1st Lecture. by iamseun(m): 1:05am on August 12

A Professor of Public Administration, Joseph Imhanlahimi has urged the Federal Government to solve ‘missing links’ in knowledge acquisition in the country.

This, he noted would guarantee adequate availability of background knowledge among the populace for the use by individuals, private sector and the government for the development of the society.

He emphasised that there should be basic qualifications to recruit political leaders.

The don spoke while delivering the first inaugural lecture of the Achievers University, Owo entitled: “Nigerian Public Administration: The Missing Links.”

Imhanlahimi said academics and researchers cannot force the government to utilise the available indigenous knowledge they provide at great personal cost.

He observed that the citizens are the losers if the government backslides in the utilisation of the available indigenous knowledge in the country.

“The mass media, fourth estate of the realm, must on behalf of the citizenry mount appropriate pressure on the government to access the local knowledge available that has been bred from our culture for solutions to the missing links facing the government and the society,” he said.

He noted that adherence to the rule of law was at low ebb and constituted hindrances to government’s policy process.

The academic urged the leadership of the judiciary to shore up political and professional will in the application of the rule of law in the country.

Vice Chancellor of the niversity, Prof Tunji Ibiyemi reiterated the institution’s commitment to groom a league of students that would transform the country.

He thanked Imhanlahimi for delivering the first inaugural lecture which he described as relevant and thoughtful.
