‘‘My honest advice to colleagues in Nigeria is that they should remain steadfast and committed to academic values and personal development in terms of continuous research and publications.
I am aware of the hardship prevalent in Nigeria but it is not an excuse not to be dedicated to self development. Everything the government should do to improve standards in Nigeria’s Universities is known to government. What is left is the goodwill to do the needful moving forward. Government and the country have the financial, material, and human resources to improve standards in Nigerian Universities but lacks the goodwill to make it happen.’’
