Education Minister tasks polytechnics on economic devt

adamu-adamuMINNA — Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu
Adamu, has challenged polytechnics in the
country to be agents of change in the area of
economy and particularly in agriculture.
The minister, who spoke at the 14th combined
convocation of the Federal Polytechnic, Bida,
Niger State noted that polytechnics had the
capacity to provide solutions to the challenge of
food shortage and its attendant crisis in Nigeria
and the world at large.
Adamu, who was represented by the Executive
Secretary of the National Board for Technical
Education, NBTE, said: “Today, the country needs
graduates of polytechnics more than ever
before, giving the emerging world food crisis. I
am aware that the polytechnics have the capacity
to provide solutions to the ongoing challenges of
food shortage and its attendant crisis in Nigeria
in particular and the world in general.
"The role of science and technology in the
development of any nation cannot be over-
emphasized as no nation can afford to depend on
borrowed or imported technology for its
industrialization. Polytechnics are, therefore,
expected to play a crucial role in this regard.”
