Youth should concentrate on research and innovation, this won’t be a brain drain but would lead to the brain gain. Three things in education should involve moral, character and intellectual, it would lead to success. Skills are acquired through practice.
Mr. Surendra Patwa Independent minister culture and tourism MP Govt said- Life is for once, we need to get all the success with positivity. One should be that successful so that the other person should think twice before competing. Future planning is must. Never compete with others rather raise your standards and do not compromise for your success.
Keynote speaker Professor Godwin Onu said that education is an important determinant of economic growth. Higher level of educational attainment lead to more skilled and productive workforce. According to ILO 43 % of unemployment in Nigeria is due to the unavailability of skills within the students which the educational institutes do not fullfill. In developing nations the key factors which contributes towards the production are competencies and skill development. We have manpower and natural resources but we are not able to utilize it in an optimum way due to lack of skills as compared to developed nations. There is a need of quality training education as a foundation for future era.
