“We have everything needed for being a super continent, but the problem is our faults of history,” said Mr. Mandy.

He shared with students information extracted from one of his readings on the six killer mindsets that need to be addressed for greater achievements, which listed African populations as being; victims of colonialism, inferiority complex, self-hatred, copying what isn’t suitable, behaving like a herd of animals, and elite dilemma resulting into mixed thoughts due to diversity of knowledge.  

The Guest of Honour, Commissioner Animal Health from Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF), Dr. Anna Rose Ademun, who is also the Chief Veterinary Officer encouraged students to appreciate any opportunity that surfaces them for career growth.  

“Wherever you are, grow yourself, go for further studies and don’t refuse any work opportunity,” stated Dr. Ademun.
