Speaking with Weekly Trust in Abuja, the developmental economist said, “If we had planned our economy to fit in with the population growth, I don’t think we will have the fear that is being entertained by the UN. But to be honest with you, I’m entertaining the same fear because we have not matched our economic planning with the population growth. We need to rethink our socio-economic and political planning to fit in with the population growth.”

According to the professor, Nigeria’s educational system has failed: “If you look at the Nigerian education for example, Nigerian education is non productive. It is purely conventional education.

“Nigerian education should be quarto-lateral: we have got to emphasise family education, industrial education, technical education and we as well need to continue to improve on our conventional education. Not everybody will pass through the conventional education but we need the economy to grow from the family, technical and industrial units.”
