Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advocated a collective approach to improving education in the country.


Obasanjo said if everyone takes education as a collective responsibility, it would help the country achieve sustainable development.

He spoke on Saturday when he inaugurated a N67.4 million conference centre at the Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun state.

NAN reports that the conference hall was renovated and upgraded by the 2020/2021 executives of the Bells University Parents’ Forum (BUPF).


Obasanjo commended the forum for building a facility for students to learn in a conducive environment.

The former president described the facility as an effort towards making Bells University one of the best tertiary institutions in the country.

“Education is the collective responsibility of everybody and by bringing resources together it would help the nation accomplish sustainable national development,” he said.


Rotimi Dosunmu, BUPF chairman, commended the management of the university and parents for their support, which, he said, was not taken for granted.

“The efforts of the BUPF could not be over-emphasised on various projects and interventions within the university with a view to improving the learning condition and welfare of our children.” Dosunmu said.

Jeremiah Ojediran, vice-chancellor of the institution, said the university’s forthcoming matriculation and convocation would be held at the centre.

“We shall use the multipurpose centre judiciously for human development,” he said.
