The president, National Political Science Association of Nigeria (NPSA), Prof. Hassan Saliu, has challenged professors of Ilorin extraction to liberate their community from political and economic challenges.

He said professors from the area need to bridge the gap between political and intellectual resources to meet the expectations of their immediate community and society at large.

Saliu, a professor of Political Science and International Relations, University of Ilorin, gave the charge at the annual general meeting (AGM) of Ilorin Emirate Professors Association (IEPA), held in Ilorin, Kwara State on Tuesday.

The event was themed ‘Ilorin Professors, Academia, Challenges and Solutions’.

In his paper titled “Pressing Challenges”, Salihu noted that IEPA with about 300 members has little or no influence in making decisions that will be of collective interest to the emirate.  

The don also lamented that the culture of Ilorin Emirate is being assaulted by other ravaging cultures and urged the emirate to spread its administrative system to the suburbs and new settlement areas of the community to stem the tide.

In his remarks, the president of IEPA, Prof. Abdulfatai Olokoba, said the association is a non-profit and non-political association with the cardinal objectives of contributing to the socio-economic development of Ilorin Emirate, Nigeria and humanity at large.

 “What unites us is Islam, our culture and heritage in Ilorin Emirate. IEPA is a body of intellectuals at the highest level of intelligentsia and our membership includes all professors of Ilorin Emirate origin at home and abroad. We have members in virtually all fields of human endeavour in all the continents of the world,” he said.
