“We need technology. When we are talking about economic development, you cannot stick with analogue ways of doing things and expect that you will compete with those countries that apply technology as means of doing business,” the Senate President said.

Lawan encouraged his fellow alumni to always think on how to make contributions to make Nigeria a better country.

“I believe there is a lot that our country can gain from patronizing the resources in the Cranfield University. I am happy that we are sending our Airforce but it is not only our Air Force, we have so many areas of technological needs that we can benefit from sending our citizens there.

“I believe that we have a whole lot of things to do to make our country better. Whether someone is in Nigeria or outside the country, once we have the training, expertise, skills, we owe it as a responsibility to our people and nation to contribute in whatever meaningful way that we can to make Nigeria better,” Lawan said.

Earlier, the President of the Alumni Association who led the delegation, Engr. Wole Adesina said their mission was to let the Senate President know what the Association was doing in Abuja.
