Prof Hakeem Tijani of the Faculty of Arts, Adeleke University, Ede, Osun State has said the establishment of world class university will go a long way to bridge the widening gap between manpower and resources available for development.

Tijani was a guest lecturer at the 52nd birthday anniversary of Prof Siyan Oyeweso, Provost, College of Culture and Humanities Osun State University, Ikire Campus.

Tijani argued that world class universities hold the key to development and are accessible to knowledge. He added that the kernel of his lecture was how to turn existing universities in Nigeria to world class so Nigeria can develop the necessary manpower required for economic stability.

Speaking further, he said Nigeria could learn from world class universities such as Oxford, Harvard, whose immense impact in their countries has resonated worldwide.

“The international rankings have attracted even more attention than originally anticipated, and the impact has been dramatic. In a number of countries, the results are a source of national pride,” he said.

On his part, the celebrator, Oyeweso, said the country must evolve education framework that would guarantee the best attitude to research and scholarly input. He said additional fund to institutions of learning would enable scholars obtain grants to undergo research.He said for a world class university to exist, it must be capable of attracting international scholars who would blend their ideas with those within the system.

“All world-class universities are research universities, and they always play a critical role within the tertiary education system in training the professionals, scientists and researchers needed for the economic development and generating new knowledge in support of the national innovation system,” he said.

Oyeweso noted that the Osun State University is moving toward this direction and in due course would be amongst the sought after institutions in the country.
