Makinde Renew Call Restructuring
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has again made a strong case for the restructuring of the country and the decentralization of its economy, stating that this will afford all states the opportunity to develop their resources at their own pace.
Makinde stated this while receiving the University of Lagos, Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association in Ibadan saying though restructuring may not be a total solution; it would address the major challenges facing the country.
The Governor maintained that it is indeed a challenging period for Nigeria as a country across various sectors, education inclusive, and tertiary education cannot be left to the government alone adding that all hands must be on deck towards ensuring that the needful is done for rapid socio-economic development of the country.
Makinde said with the NUC and TETFUND, everything has become centralised in the tertiary education sector adding that this explains why many Nigerians are asking for a decentralized structure for the country so that certain people can develop at their own pace.
Earlier in his address, the National President of the Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association, Engineer Dideolu Falobi, who lauded the developmental programmes of Governor Makinde, described him as a good ambassador of the faculty and the institution at large.
