The Vice-Chancellor, who was represented at
the event by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor
(Research,
Technology and Innovation), Prof. Gabriel
Olatunji, said, “We need universities that
would be
teaching graduates how to fish themselves,
not the ones that will show them the way to
the fish market”, adding that “Nigeria is ripe
for Universities of Medicine, Pharmacy, Social
Sciences,
Humanities, among others where critical
talents would be aggregated for increased
value. Earlier in his remarks, the Director of
CIE, Prof.
Mohammed Ibrahim, disclosed that the
University
has 272 international students from 18
countries
and 21 foreign staff. He noted that the
presence of the Guest Speaker, Dr
Josephine Ojiambo, who is a Deputy
Secretary
General at the Commonwealth Secretariat, is
a
boost to the Centre’s activities, as the
international
diplomat would contribute her quota to
increasing
the Commonwealth scholarship given to
students and staff of the University of Ilorin.
In his address, the President of the Unilorin
International Students Association (UISA), Mr.
Hounnougbo Kandeski Arthur Arnaud,
expressed
the Association’s appreciation to the
University
administration for “creating an enabling
environment to ease our learning and for
creating a platform for cultural integration
among all
international students within and outside the
great
better by far institution, the University of
Ilorin.
