The Honorary Consul of Czech Republic, who was speaking at the 4th convocation ceremony of the university on the topic “The Visible and Invisible Hands of Development: Interrogating the Roles of Tertiary Institutions and the Financial Sector in Nigeria” stressed that education is the only sector that drives development in all spheres.
