Rector tasks engineers on national issues

Federal Polytechnic, Offa Rector  Dr. Mufutau Olatinwo has called on stakeholders in the engineering and technology sectors to proffer pragmatic solutions to youth unemployment, insecurity and epileptic power supply using the emerging trends in engineering and technology.
Olatinwo gave this charge at the fourth national conference of the School of Engineering and Technology of the Polytechnic. He also tasked tertiary institutions to groom great minds that could make positive changes and advance the nation’s technological capacities.
“I challenge our institutions to rise up to this great task of which this conference is an avenue to fashion out tactics in moving Nigeria from developing country to a technologically advanced nation” he said.
He continued:  “I am particularly happy that this conference with the theme ‘Application of emerging trends in engineering &technology to solving prevailing national Issues’ is coming at a time in our country when concerted efforts are actually needed to integrate engineering and technology into our national lives.
The main and sub-themes of today’s conference are very much in accordance with the current thinking of all stakeholders in the education sector having realised that Nigeria cannot continue to produce graduates that could not blend and function optimally in an ever-increasing globalised technological environment.
