UNLAG VC Urges Lecturers To Research On How To End Boko Haram
THE Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Professor Rahamon Bello has urged the university lecturers to research on how to solve local problem like combating Boko Haram insurgency.
Speaking during the closing ceremony of the 10th UNILAG Annual Research Conference and Fair themed: “Implementing New Research Strategies For National Transformation,”he said:
“There are so many aspects of the Boko Haram that can be looked at. The military are looking for hardware to be able to monitor and prevent explosion.”
He said that the socio impacts of the war and all the problem of rehabilitation can be researched on as well.
“You can look at the financial implication and its effect on the economy of the nation. All these are things that are researchable. I want to lure you on to think Nigeria, think local.“
He urged them to research on quality papers that the world would be proud at.
“I want to say that our Research and Innovation Office is just coming up and their inputs and impacts are not yet felt at the conference but in another year or two we shall start feeling them.
“What I am saying is that it is not just enough to carry out research whether in the humanity or in the sciences. What we need is the application of our research results. And the Research and Innovation Office will do us a lot of proud. Do not relent on your efforts. A few people are making money on research but I believe that the good years will come on our way.”
