Yusuf who is also a member of National Council of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, MAN, advised parents against sending their children abroad at tender ages adding that such decision is dangerous to their existence in future times.
He added that children should be given adequate attention towards making them acquire background/basic knowledge from their nation in order to inject the principle of patriotism and morality in them.
“Science and Technology is the only way to develop our nation and government should ensure that youths are encouraged to dwell more in skillful careers in order to explore the numerous opportunities created by industrialists in Nigeria. We are exporting skills and paying high when we have many youths who have studied courses that are not relevant to industrialisation.
