The Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, Prof. Elias Suleman Bogoro has stated that Government focus is no longer on funding Physical Infrastructure in Tertiary Institutions only, but shifting towards funding Research and Development projects as well. Prof. Bogoro made this statement while commissioning the Renewable Resources Centre of the Department of Environment Sciences, Faculty of Public Health, University of Ibadan. Lauding the initiative, Prof. Bogoro commended the multidisciplinary approach the Centre has adopted in its research efforts, which according to him, must have contributed to the level of success they have been able to achieve. He also expressed delight at the fact that the Centre was also providing opportunity for young researchers to be mentored. He enjoined other scholars to begin to pay attention to translational Research, as the expectation in leadership in contemporary Nigeria is from the Academia. Speaking at the occasion, the Vice Chancellor appreciated the Research team at the Centre for their persistent hardwork and the multidisciplinary approach adopted by them. He also appreciated Prof. Bogoro and TETFUND for the upgrade of the Centre, while also admitting that it was still work in progress and could be scaled up. According to Prof. M.K.C. Shridar, who is one of the leaders of the Research team at the Centre, the Renewable Resources Centre was conceptualized in the 1980s, and over time, has culminated into what it is today. The Centre, which is based on the Waste to Wealth and Energy concept makes boast of over 25 projects and produce which can be introduced into the Nigerian market. Such include Biogas, Liquid Fertilizers, Smokeless Charcoal Producing Kiln, Mushroom production, all from waster products, as well as Phototherapy lamp for neonatal jaundice treatment among others. One unique feature of the Centre is that its researches are multidisciplinary and collaborative in nature, involving not only Medicine, but also cutting across other disciplines like Agricultures, Engineering, Urban and Regional Planning, Social Science, Basic Sciences as well as several communities, thereby enhancing their effectiveness and impact. A tour of the Centre was thereafter conducted, during which the research outcome of the Centre were displayed to the amazement of all.
