2 mins read

THE Federal Government should be encouraged to partner with Jordan on  technology and agriculture, the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC) has said.

The Executive Secretary, NCPC, Rev. Yakubu Pam, made this known when he paid a courtesy visit to the management of Applied Science Private University (ASU) in the Kingdom of Jordan, on Wednesday.

Noting that Nigeria had a strong relationship with the Jordanian government, Pam said the Nigeria government would be ready for a productive collaboration that would stand the test of time.

Pam said, “When we came here, we discovered that the Jordanians are good in technology. When we go back to Nigeria, we will encourage our youths to come for studies here.

“If we have a good bilateral agreement, we will be able to sell the study idea to the government and people of Nigeria. We will speak to our governors in various states to sponsor some of our youths on scholarships to study in ASU. We believe this will enable our youths to channel their energy towards productive ventures.”

Pam said Nigeria would also explore the area of solar panel installation to provide light in rural communities for economic development and to address insecurity in the country.

President of ASU, Prof. Iman Amin-Basheti, said the university was one of the leading institutions in the Middle East.
