He urged him to learn from former President Olusegun Obasanjo who negotiated debt forgiveness because no investors would be willing to come and invest in a nation that could not pay its huge debts and the interest owed.
Babalola made the remarks at the weekend while answering questions from newsmen after a lecture titled, “Smart Infrastructure: Catalyst for Sustainable Development,” delivered at the university by Prof. Bamidele Adebisi of the University of Manchester, UK.
The legal luminary charged Nigerian professors on the need for quality researches to attract funding and investment from industries.
