The Vice Chancellor of University of Ibadan (UI), Professor Idowu Olayinka, has called for prayers that will touch leaders in the country to inject adequate fund into the nation’s education sector.
Prof Olayinka, who said better funding of the education sector will give Nigeria unprecedented development, lamented that some secondary and primary schools students/pupils now smoke Indian hemp.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, Nigeria leaders need to make smart decisions at the appropriate time to do the needful for the peace and progress of the country.
Prof Olayinka stated this in his address at the Campus Holy Ghost Rally held on the Sport Field of the Premier University where General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, preached.
The Vice Chancellor, who asked Pastor Adeboye to pray for Nigeria to have leaders who can take smart decisions and inject funds into education, called for special funding for UI to be able to conduct research, upgrade infrastructure and improve her ranking globally.
”We are glad to have you on our campus. We need you to pray for peace in Nigeria and on our campuses. We need prayer to have smart leaders who can take smart decisions to turn things around positively. We don’t want disruption in academic calendar. We need leaders who can take smart decisions to favour University of Ibadan with funding and the education sector in general. Those in Abuja must take decisions that will impact positively on Nigerians,” he said.
While preaching on the topic, “Behold the Lamb”, Pastor Adeboye prayed for peace, progress of Nigeria as well as a new beginning
