The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has charged Nigerian universities to go global so as not to be left behind as the Fourth Industrial Revolution is already shaping the world.
He also called on them to have a clear focus on how they wish to attain global recognition.
This is just as the Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, said the institution has attracted over N4 billion grants from foreign agencies and bodies in the last two years.
Adamu, who was represented by Director, Directorate of the Executive Secretary’s Office, National Universities Commission, NUC, Dr Chris Maiyaki, said this at the maiden edition of UNILAG international week tagged,” Education in a connected world.”
The minister noted that going international, aside its benefits and potentials, was beyond the signing of memorandum of understanding, MoU, and attending conferences, etc.
