No wonder Nigerian universities have dropped to the lowest levels in world's rankings! They are what they call "diploma mills."

Research and development are very important, they love research and development, they were serious about it, before it was too late in their lives, every morning they were happy and excited about what they may find or discover, they understood that they had to create something from nothing and something from something, so they went into the intangible and the place that cannot yet be seen, they saw it and learned it and brought it into existence.

it's a shame,
they're not even concerned about developing our engineers delving into vehicle production rather spending too much on foreign products.

Na today ! Nigeria universities have never invented nothing .Univetsities is a place of invention ,but ours since inception has never researched and developed nothing .All our prototype dummy invention never made it to production .So ,what is d need to continue deceiving ourselves where nothing fruitful yield .Scrap the entire RND department and better allocate that little money for other infrastructural upgrade on the commission premises .
