AAU President Offers Hope on Youth Unemployment

The President, Association of African Universities (AAU) and Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Olusola Oyewole, has identified how the high unemployment rate prevalentin many African countries can be curbed. This formed the thrust of discussions in commemoration of the 2014 African University Day celebration themed, "How Can African Universities Enhance Capacity for Job Creation?”

Speaking in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on “The Role of African Higher Education Institutions in Promoting Graduate Employability”, the Vice-Chancellor stated that the skills needed by students in the various institutions of higher learning go beyond mere academic skills that were being taught in traditional Universities. According to him, “Our Universities should be more concerned now about some other skills that can make our graduates to sell themselves in the market. Skills like , Information and Communication Technology skills, skills like being able to stand up to challenges, thinking skills and more importantly, writing and speaking skills”. He observed that the hardest hit by youth unemployment were those with low levels of education and qualifications, who may either be unfit for the available jobs, nor able to compete with others having higher levels of education and qualifications.

He stated that there was the urgent need for African Universities, governments, private sector and stakeholders to come together and develop a circle, where higher education can play a major role in the knowledge economy, by showing a strong correlation between higher education and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth, through human capital development and technology diffusion. The Vice-Chancellor added that the content of higher education should improve and be more relevant to building up the total man in graduates. “The values with which we operate in our environment should change; our current values cannot promote development. There is the need for each one of us to change our attitude. We are in an environment where merit is not promoted; in an environment where people believe that you don’t need to work hard to make money; where people do not see integrity as a virtue to be promoted. Such environment cannot promote development; an environment where young people prefer to cheat in order to earn high grades. These are the things we should change, in order to promote the future of our country”, the AAU President disclosed.

Professor Oyewole called for a review of the curriculum of African Universities to ensure that graduates that were being produced were exposed to the necessary skills and competences that could make them employable. He added that there was the need to change the system of teaching from being staff-centered to student-centered in a manner whereby students were allowed to learn and be innovative, while stressing that Universities should be seen more as learning centres for both students and lecturers alike and not just mere teaching centres. He challenged researchers in African Universities to embark on researches that would meet the developmental gap in their communities, address the challenges of industries, organisations and bring development closer to the African continent. He said that as academics and researchers, the joy of their research would be the development and advancement of their communities and not just to embark on research just to earn promotion or additional qualifications. Professor Oyewole called for increased communication of research findings to both government and the society, in order to build faith in the University system. He also made case for increased funding of research to avoid emergencies like the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic, which most countries in Africa were not prepared for, adding that the efforts of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), in Nigeria, in funding tertiary institutions were commendable, even though the funds were insufficient.

The President of AAU further emphasised the need for African Universities to create an environment that promotes Internationalisation, as this would help expand the University’s frontier to other academic cultures by creating a good platform for interaction. He disclosed that FUNAAB would leave no stone unturned in its internationalisation drive by working on a new curriculum for its various departments, as well as training students on entrepreneurial skills. On the significance of the African University Day celebration, marked annually on the 12th of November by respective AAU member Universities, Professor Oyewole said “the day is set aside by AAU for all Universities to recognise the reason for their existence. It is a day dedicated to the realisation of the role of Universities in our national, regional and governmental development. This year is special in that it would be our 48th year of existence as AAU. The Association of African Universities was established in 1967 in Rabat, Morocco and on the AU day, it is expected that each University and tertiary institution in Africa, would celebrate the occasion by organising a suitable forum for public dialogue, aimed at raising awareness on the critical issues surrounding the theme of the year’s celebration. We want each University to celebrate within themselves, their contributions to the development of the society”.

The vision of AAU is to be the voice for the African higher education community - both within and outside Africa - while its mission is to raise the quality of higher education and strengthen its contributions to Africa’s development by fostering collaboration among its members; providing support to their core functions of teaching, learning, research and community engagement; facilitating critical reflection and consensus building around issues affecting higher education and the development of Africa.

You Have Done Very Well - Southwest RMRDC Board Leader Tells FUNAAB

The Leader, Southwest, Governing Board of the Raw Material Research and Development Council (RMRDC), Asiwaju Solomon Onafowokan, has lauded the University for operating on zero-waste basis in terms of effective utilisation of land. Asiwaju Onafowokan gave this commendation when members of the Governing Board of RMRDC visited the University on a facility tour of the institution’s Cashew Nut Processing Plant. He said the Board came to find out how the equipments and machines, donated to the University in 2011, namely; Steam Boiler, Oven, Spicing Machine, Packaging Machine, Thermal Shock, Steel Stools and Tables - were performing, as well as to know the challenges faced during maintainance.

The Director, Agricultural and Agro-Allied Department of RMRDC, Dr. Moyo Jolaoso, who has been leading the RMRDC team on the collaboration with the University since 2011, stressed that cashew processing was just the first phase after which comes the industrial application, where the oil extracted from the shell would be used in manufacturing of paints, organic pesticides and organic fertilizer. Dr. Jolaoso added that the domestication of the machines donated by the council was done to make it easier for students to procure on graduating.

Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Oyewole, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Development, Professor Kolawole Salako, stated that FUNAAB was happy to collaborate with RMRDC. The Vice-Chancellor noted that the University started the business of cashew 15 years ago with the processing of cashew juice, which was closed down partly due to the need to properly register with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC). He also commended the level of commitment of the staff of RMRDC in acquiring the Cashew Nut processing machines for the University. Professor Oyewole noted that some FUNAAB students and those from Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State were presently undergoing their industrial attachments in the University and gave the assurance that very soon, there would not be any need for FUNAAB students to go for their industrial attachments outside the University.

The Co-ordinator, FUNAAB Cashew Nut Processing Plant, Dr. Akinpelu Ojo, said he was happy with the tour of the facilities, as the Board was able to meet with the workers and students while working. He disclosed that all the machines donated by RMRDC were in premium condition. He, however, added that they still required a multi-purpose juice extractor to resume the commercial production of cashew, Pineapple, Mango, as well as Citrus juices.

CPV Embarks On Artificial Insemination Programme

In an attempt to increase milk production and promote small holder dairy production in the community and environs, the Cattle Production Venture (CPV), recently embarked on the Artificial Insemination of the White Fulani Cattle breed with semen from imported cattle species, Holstein Freisian and Asian breeds reputed to be heavy milkers. Professor Daisy Eruvbetine, of the College of Animal Science and Livestock Production (COLANIM), who is also the Co-ordinator of CPV, highlighted the reasons behind the establishment of the venture to include: popularisation of cattle production in South-West Nigeria, rendering of services to the community in various capacities related to dairy production, providing facilities for students in terms of practical experience and generating income for the University.

The insemination of the animals was led by a renowned scholar, Professor Elias Bawa, a Professor of Theriogenology, who is currently on sabbatical from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, serving in the Department of VeterinaryHealth and Reproduction, College of Veterinary Medicine, FUNAAB. Speaking further, Professor Eruvbetine itemised the importance of the artificial insemination programme to include: production of crossbreed animals that will be given to local farmers, increased milk production; making FUNAAB a milk collection centre and providing research and training opportunities for both staff and students.

The team leader, Professor Bawa, while expressing his appreciation to the University Management, noted that the expected breed, after the completion of the process, would have the following unique features: higher growth rate, higher milk and beef production tendencies, early attainment of puberty and shorter calving interval, when compared with other indigenous breeds.

Green Economy, Panacea to Rising Poverty, Says Don

A scholar, Professor Bola Okuneye, of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Farm Management, has advocated for the adoption of the Green Economy, as panacea to taking Nigeria out of the rising poverty in the face of its ever-increasing population. The Don gave this advice at the 14th Professor Anthony Afolabi Adegbola Memorial lecture, held recently, in Lagos which was titled, “The Green Economy and Agricultural Progress in Nigeria: The Economics of Unutilised Resources”. According to Professor Okuneye, Nigeria’s agricultural practice fully started from the Colonial era when the colonialists had the objective of re-orientating the local farming systems towards meeting and serving the demands of their home countries. He stated further that Nigeria was blessed with high level of oil and agricultural resources and that despite the large revenue derived from the oil sector, agriculture remained the main stay of the economy. The Don said, historically, there was no country that had made economic progress without recording appreciable gains in its agricultural sector. He defined Green Economy, according to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), to mean an improvement in human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing the attendant environmental risks and ecological scarcities.

“Practically speaking, a Green Economy is one whose growth in income and employment is driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services”, he stated. This initiative includes promoting the Green Economy report and related research materials, which would analyse the macro-economic sustainability and poverty reduction implications of engaging in green investment in a range of sectors from renewable energy to sustainable agriculture by providing guidance on policies that could lead to an increase in investment in these sectors,others.

Professor Okuneye, therefore, called on all to embrace the Green Economy as a solution to reducing poverty in the land. Other benefits include prospects for job-creation, enhancement of social equity and energy efficiency. He added that there were several opportunities in funding a Green Economy, as long as governments at all levels show serious commitment to the programme and stakeholders namely - the government, private sector, as well as a combination of the public-private partnership initiative. He also identified major constraints that could befall the practice of Green Economy in a nation like Nigeria. They are: Extensive system of grazing, the usual non-continuity of development programmes, adoption of the fallow system of farming, weak implementation of the Land Use Act, low agricultural financing, poor foreign policy provision on international commodity market and inadequate environmental laws and regulations. He, however, suggested that implementing the programmes in Nigeria should rather be in phases, beginning with the agricultural component while other sectors, such as transportation, works and housing, should follow later.

Maritime Education, Critical to Africa’s Development - AAU President

The importance of maritime education in the development of the Sub-saharan Africa has been stressed. This observation was made by the President of the Association of African Universities (AAU), Professor Olusola Oyewole, at the just-concluded 2014 African Maritime Domain Conference, held in Port-Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa, with the theme, “The African Maritime Domain: Building Capacity and Developing Policy”.

Presenting a paper tagged “The role of African Universities in marine and maritime Training, Education, Research and Innovation”, Professor Oyewole said the overarching vision of the conference’s strategy was to “foster increased wealth creation from Africa’s oceans and seas by developing a sustainable, thriving, blue economy in a secure and environmentally-suitable manner”.

He noted that even though water affected man’s everyday life, the continent was blessed with a vast coastal line of over 26,000 nautical miles. Many African nations also depended on the sea and sea resources for most of their energy needs, food supplies and water commercial transportation activities, with over 90 per cent of Africa’s imports and exports conducted by sea, saying the ability of African nations to exploit the resources and potentials of the maritime domain depended on the skill of the African maritime professionals. “Today, our water bodies are facing challenges ranging from human wickedness through piracy, and other unexplainable phenomena such as climate change, for which we need a well-trained work-force to help us unravel. We need to ensure a safe and secured Maritime and riverine environment, managed by well-trained maritime professionals”, he stated.

The AAU President defined maritime education as the field of studies and training connected with the marine domain and industries that can be broadly categorised into two major sectors - the primary and secondary sectors - such as fisheries, pharmaceuticals and aquaculture, off-shore energy, mining, shipping logistics, marine technologies, marine business services, marine security and regulations, as well as Naval defence. According to him, training and education in marine-related studies can be obtained from four major sources such as shipping companies, private providers, public institutions and specialised marine Universities. He noted that for many years and across many countries, maritime education area was dominated by the shipping companies and private providers. This made many learners to be at risk in terms of the quality and contents of their trainings as public institutions that offered maritime education were for many years restricting to only post-secondary educational delivery providers by offering Diplomas and Certificates in some fields of marine services. He, however, observed that training at the University level emanated from non-marine specialised departments such as Engineering, Science, and Management among others.  Some of these early maritime training centres in African are located in Algeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria.

The focus of learning in the Maritime domain goes beyond theory. It is a field where skills and competences are essential. Every day, new technologies are emerging and the industry keeps facing new challenges connected with safety and pollution. These are demanding for new competences and the need to set high standards in the human capacity development. Maritime education training institutions, therefore, would have to keep track with latest developments. African institutions must make extra efforts to benchmark with their overseas counterparts to regularly review their curricula, update their training facilities, and improve the quality of their staff and management to be able to meet the requirements of the industries. The African maritime domain is facing many challenges including dumping of toxic wastes, illegal fishing and mounting insecurity.  These maritime challenges require well-coordinated research strategies to combat them. The resources of the Africa’s maritime domain cannot be well exploited if specific researches are not targeted rightly. In addition, the following are urgently requested for the establishment and strengthening of national, regional, and continental maritime research and development centres required for the promotion of cooperation in research and training between institutions, industry and the government, at both national and regional levels, collaboration with other countries outside Africa, through research staff exchange, and research collaborations.

All the innovations desired for driving the human capacity development in the maritime domain will require funds. Adequate funding mechanisms need to be developed to drive the research needs for the maritime domain. Special Professorial Chairs should be funded in universities where maritime studies are undertaken.

He noted that there was a large number of educational providers in Africa’s maritime domain. Many of the providers are commercial entities and the trainings being offered are targeted at meeting some selected needs. Many players in the industries train their personnel on the job and some of the training programs are not certified.  These do not give room to good human mobility in the industry. In order to meet the 2050 Africa Integrated Maritime Strategy, there is the need for the establishment of a continental body to develop an acceptable qualification framework for the industry, which will accommodate the current players as such body, will also be required to coordinate and drive the capacity development agenda in the field. The relevancy and adequacy of the curriculum is one of the major challenges that maritime educational institutions face in Africa. Unlike other field of studies in the continent, development in the maritime industries and the challenges facing the industry demand that the human capacity velopment agext-n the ptionchmark wmertaken.
