He encouraged students to work hard to be self-reliant after graduating from institutions of science and technology.

Similarly, Dr Abubakar Dzukogi, the Rector, Federal Polytechnic, Bida said that the socio-economic challenges facing the country such as insecurity, the downward trend of the economy and corruption among others have increased hence the need to apply science and technology to tackle them.

Teach him how to process and package fish for export and you have stimulated economic development. This is the work of engineers, Dzukogi.
