‘Intensify your research’ – President Buhari challenges Nigerian Universities to develop COVID-19 vaccine
President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged Nigerian universities to intensify their research in order to develop (coronavirus) COVID-19 vaccine to tackle
Buhari, represented by Mr. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, the Minister of State for Education, gave the challenge at the fifth and sixth combined convocation of the Federal University Dutsin-Ma (FUDMA) on Saturday.The President explained that Nigerian Universities were supposed to be centres for scientific and technological discoveries, values and character formation, inventions, as well as drivers of societal development.
He added that the development of the vaccine would fortify Nigerians’ immune systems against COVID-19.According to him, his administration remained committed to tackling the challenges of sustainable funding for research, capacity building and employment creation.
He said, “You all know that in the year 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic began its devastating effect on the education sub-sectors, leading to the destruction of universities’ academic activities.“I, therefore, urge and encourage the universities to intensify their research to come up with a more potent vaccine to fortify our immune system against this dreaded virus.” headtopics.com
Where are the resources to conducting such research? How? Where are the equipment and funding? Idiot Just saying it for saying sake. Am sure he didn't meant it or they just wrote it for him without him knowing the meaning. Research is not cheap and is it the university you are funding that will conduct a research, most of them are glorify secondary school
Person wey no write WAEC dey challenge Higher institutions, hmmmm 🤦♂️ And how much have invested in the Nigeria's education sector that u task them for COVID19 vaccine Na chalk and black board dem go take develop the covid-19 vaccine, abi na wit hungry belly or na wit laboratories wey rats dey do hide-n-seek? Countries wey dey do covid-19 vaccine get up-to-date facilities, modern equipments and adequate technologies not herdsmen n bandits.
Is it not with money one can conduct research, is he giving them enough to enable them to? We saw how much some countries + their well to do individuals gave for research alone, not to talk of vaccine manufacturing. How much have we given for either? Lmao 😂 With their salaries I guess? In a country where there are no government backed research grants. Those babysitting you are really doing a bad job.

No basis to beg Buhari to release Igboho, says AfenifereThe pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has said it has no basis to appeal to the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to release Yoruba Nation agitator and activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.

FreeMaziNnamdiKanuNow They should be very specific and name the innocent victims who were killed on MNK’s orders . They can also report on the atrocities of IPOB.
