    Mabogaje, while speaking to the children at Shining Star School, venue of the Career Talk, said if students were taught early what engineering is all about, it would open their minds to see the benefits and general aspects of the profession.

    “For the past four years, the government has given us policy that would benefit old engineers and make their future secure. This policy encourages local content, that is, if a foreigner comes to Nigeria to execute a project, he must engage Nigerian engineers to partake in the project for Nigerian engineers to benefit from. The government has also given us the opportunity to compete and research as engineers for development,” he said.
