Don canvasses more funding for research institutes
The Executive Director, Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN) Ibadan, Dr Solomon Funmilayo Badejo has called on State and Local Governments to support the Federal Government in funding research institutes in the country.
Speaking to Journalists in Ibadan, Dr Badejo says the bulk of funding in all research institutes in Nigeria is being provided by Federal Government .
He said the state and local governments in the country should try and emulate the federal government in putting little of their allocation for research.
In his words: “There is no state that would say there is no research institute located within it. They could assist with funding and by the time they are doing that we would not be talking about inadequate research funding again. They should note that research is the bedrock of development in any society”.
