The Vice-Chancellor of Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, Prof Joshua Ogunwole, has called on stakeholders to make sure that quality education is available and accessible to all Nigerians at all times.

Ogunwole made this call at the 14th convocation of the university where 868 students of the institution bagged first and postgraduate degrees.

He said, “The quality of the economic or political contribution of a nation’s young or adult population is dependent on the quality of education received by the citizens.

“Although tertiary education is expensive, all stakeholders must act intentionally and be responsive to the challenge of delivering the best education to the entire population, this will help to secure the future of the country.”

The President, Africa Development Bank, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, in his lecture at the event, urged the Federal Government to set aside 20 per cent of earnings from oil to drive science and innovations.

Adesina also harped on the need for the country to put in place a National Science and Innovation Fund to drive innovation for faster technology-enabled growth.

He said, “The youths are not the future, they are the present. Our collective responsibility is to prepare them to thrive for the future through entrepreneurship.

“What is not measured does not get done. The measure of the growth of countries should not just be GDP. Nobody eats GDP, rather, we must begin to measure the contributions of the youth to the GDP.

“Our university should move away from routine teaching into allowing students to experiment, try things, put ideas to work and innovative. To do this, universities need to have structured institutional arrangements for supporting the development and commercialisation of innovations.”
