Paul Adefarasin Calls for Industrialization and Education Reform in Nigeria
Paul Adefarasin, Senior Pastor of House on the Rock Church, has emphasized the urgent need for Nigeria to prioritize industrialization and reform its education system for the nation’s future progress.
During a visit to the late Akintola Williams’ residence in Lagos, Adefarasin stressed that Nigeria must fundamentally change its approach to address the pressing challenges it faces.
He advocated a shift from exporting raw materials to exporting processed products, highlighting the potential for job creation and the growth of industries. According to Adefarasin, this transformation is essential for Nigeria to become an industrialized and economically prosperous nation.
In addition to industrialization, Adefarasin underscored the critical importance of addressing the quality of education in Nigeria. He pointed out that the state of education today will shape future public policies, making it imperative to take action to ensure its quality.
Adefarasin also called for a unified vision that transcends regional, religious, and social divisions, emphasizing that Nigeria belongs to all its citizens.
Expressing his gratitude for Akintola Williams’ significant contributions, Adefarasin highlighted the late icon’s support for their congregation and shared passion for spreading the gospel.
Lastly, Adefarasin expressed his belief that individuals of Akintola Williams’ caliber, hailing from distinguished backgrounds, possess the essential qualities needed for Nigeria’s revitalization and should actively participate in the political process for the nation’s betterment.
