Israel to Help Nigeria Become a Food Superpower – Chris Ochayi
Israeli authorities Monday announced that they will partner with the Federal Government of Nigeria to address numerous insecurity challenges currently confronting the country, especially to end the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East zone. Professor Joseph Shevel of the Galilee International Management Institute disclosed the institute was drawing up a framework towards engaging the Boko Haram insurgency with dialogue.
The institute agreed to offer post-graduate degrees and short certificate courses in agriculture, water management, health management, computer science, education and national security to students of Michael and Cecilia Ibru University. “This is the first Nigeria-Israeli university,” said Prof. Shevel. “Nigeria can be a superpower in providing food for the rest of West Africa.” He added, “We have been working with Nigerian organizations for the last 30 years and we have about 2,300 alumni and a lot of them are senior people.” (Vanguard-Nigeria)
