Bishop David Oyedpo, Chancellor of Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State and the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church (LFC), has called on African leaders to review their countries’ education policy to meet the world’s technological advancements relating to the needs of their people.
Oyedepo, while speaking at the sixth convocation ceremony of Landmark University, stated that there was an urgent need to repackage the continent’s education system to align with the best global practices.
According to reports made available to schoolworld, the institution recorded fifty-one first-class graduates out 432 presented for the convocation.
“It must be a departure from figure to future-building, a departure from points to facts, a departure from mathematics to life-matics and a departure from legalism to realism,” Oyedepo stated.
The cleric noted that the worsening food crisis remained the greatest threat to the survival of Africa as a continent, saying it could wipe out an entire generation if not checked.
He stated that Africans must learn to engage in intensive agricultural endeavours if they must survive in the face of impending global food crisis.
Prof. Adeniyi Olayanju, Vice Chancellor of the institution, attributed the achievements of the university to massive spiritual support and continuous investment in an ultra-modern facility development.
“We are unrelenting in advancing the frontiers of research activities that would, among others, boost the agricultural value chain. This, we hope, will engender the much-needed food sufficiency in our continent,” the VC stated.
