By Dennis Agbo LAWMAKER in Enugu State House of Assembly, Hon James Akadu has expressed disappointment with scientific researchers in Nigerian Institutes and tertiary institutions for their inability to proffer solution to the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic. Akadu who is the Chairman, House committee on Education, Science and Technology said that all the money sank into the different research Institutes have turned out to be a waste and urged researchers to redeem their integrity by providing solution to the pandemic as their counterparts in other climes are proposing.
He made the submission, yesterday, while distributing palliative materials to the vulnerable and less privileged members of his constituency to cushion the effects of coronavirus lockdown at Ikolo, Igbo-etiti Local government area of Enugu state. Akadu said: “Personally, I am not satisfied with our research Institutes and tertiary institutions, whose duties are to research and provide possible solutions in the society. “When this issue of Coronavirus came out, we heard that Isreal, USA and other countries are preparing vaccines, but the Nigerian research Institutes are not doing anything as far as I am concerned.
