"Not all Nigerian youth are lazy, please encourage home grown ideas and invention. Let the boy be trained to work with Defence and Security institutions in producing locally our own goods."

Prof, if I had a chance to speak with Kenneth, I would tell him to direct this energy to build drones and quadcopters because that way, we may still have an edge in developing systems peculiar to our terrain."
