LAGOS NOVEMBER 13TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Federal Government has approved a high impact infrastructure intervention worth ?3 billion for the Federal University of Petroleum Effurun, Delta State.

Prof. Abdullahi Shehu Zuru identified the lack of connection between research institutions and industries as the major cause of Nigeria’s low industrial and economic growth.
