Kaduna — A university don, Prof. Abdullahi Bagudu, says Nigeria will remain an indivisible entity in spite of its security challenges, endemic corruption and recklessness.
Bagudu, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration) of Usman Dan Fodio University Sokoto, stated this on Saturday in Kaduna during the presentation of a book titled: "Corporate Governance and Social Responsibility."
The book was written by Prof. Kabiru Dandago in honour of former Vice Chancellor of Kaduna State University (KASU), Prof. Aminu Mika'ilu.
Bagudu described Nigeria as "a wonderful country that has passed through various challenges but came out of them stronger".
He added, "we are going to get over the current situation stronger than ever before. "
" For us in the academia, ours is to make contributions into knowledge for those who want to utilise it.
"Our role is to generate and disseminate knowledge and this is what informed the effort to attract scholars from various universities to contribute in the writing the book."
According to him, the book centres on corporate governance and social responsibility, adding the two concepts are relevant to the country's development.
He described Mika'ilu as a humble person that spent his life in the development of education in Nigeria.
"I salute your effort because you have dedicated this book to the right person who has spent significant part of his life serving humanity.
"I think there is no better way to do it than to have a book on a current and topical issue dedicated to the person of Professor Aminu Salihu Mika'ilu," he said.
In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor of KASU, Prof. Barnabas Quirix commended the author of the book "for a well written book".
He expressed optimism that "the book will no doubt contribute to the academic development of this country. "
Quitrix urged students of the university to emulate the quality of Mika'ilu, by contributing to the nation's educational development.
