    Presenting medals to the academics, the vice chancellor said the 2022 grant was more than what the university’s researchers got last year.

    He charged leaders of research to stand up and share their experience with other friends, while reiterating that Nigeria cannot develop without investing in research.

    “If you are a kind of person who has got quite a lot, when somebody is developing, please offer to read through the proposal.

    “Let every department try an idea of developing committee to do seminars on grants or invite people from other universities to come and give a seminar.

    “If you need my help as a vice chancellor I will be ready to support. Let it be done at Faculty levels, let there be competition, that is the way it is.
