Ajimobi, at book launch, decries poor attitude to knowledge

Written by Dotun Oladipo

The Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has decried the poor attitude of Nigerians to acquisition of knowledge, stating that indiscipline, culture of impunity and quest for accumulation of wealth, rather than the search for knowledge, were obstacles to progress and development in Nigeria.

Ajimobi stated this on Thursday at the formal launch of a book entitled: “Policing in a Corrosive Environment”, authored by his Chief Security Officer, CSP Francis Ojomo, which held at the Jogor Centre, Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.

According to the governor, the poor attitude of Nigerians to knowledge was a function of lack of understanding of the chain link between it and wealth.

“Many people do not know that knowledge is power and it gives one an opportunity to make money. If you acquire money before knowledge, you will still need to acquire knowledge to continue to maintain the money,” he counseled.
