Management and Corporate Governance in view of her outstanding achievements, contributions to humanity and inspirations to young Africans last night commended Equipment manufacturing giant, Dizengoff, for donating equipment worth 60,000 U.S. dollars to the University of Lagos, in an effort to boost entrepreneurship and innovation among students.
Dr Efole while commending Equipment manufacturing giant, Dizengoff- said there is no investment as good as good education to our youths , because money comes and goes but education stays
Only last week, Mr Kai Wulff, Consultant to the organisation, who presented the equipment to the university, said that the equipment would be used to train students and provide solutions to Nigeria’s many problems.
In his words “We are here to kick-start a fruitful and rewarding partnership with the University of Lagos because we are impressed with the level of entrepreneurial work going on here.
“What we have donated here are totally communication network equipment, components of communication network solutions,” he said.
Wulff said that the university’s efforts in entrepreneurship showed that many more innovations would start from there.
“That is why we took it upon ourselves to further enable the students by donating equipment worth 60,000 dollars.
“Basically, the equipment itself, the radio, the controllers, the trackers and the software can be taught and played with individually, but it can as well be a proof of concept that universities can design a network and test it out to the real world, if it works.
“We want to see how these equipment will be able to further enhance hands- on experience, especially in the area of communication and the technology,” he said.
The consultant said that the company would want to relate with the university deeper.
“With our software development capabilities, our integration capabilities, smart decision-making and cyber securities, we want to be part of it the (university),” he said.
While commending the organisation, Dr Efolecharged more big brands organization to to follow suit and emulate such noble acts as only government alone cannot be made to carry such huge educational burden in Africa
