No Nation Develops Without Mathematics - NMS President

The President of the Nigerian Society of Mathematics (NMS), Professor Bashir Alli, has said during the 39th Annual General Conference of the association held at the Redeemer’s University, Ede, Osun State, recently, that no nation can develop without paying attention to the development of Mathematics which is the bedrock of Science and Technology.

The NMS boss called on all stakeholders that are concern with education in Nigeria to come to the aid of Mathematics in the country, adding that Mathematics as a scarce skill need to be given special attention and that the society is ever ready to collaborate with private sector.

He advised the Federal Government to involve mathematicians in decision making in order to have viable and failure-free solutions to national problems.

The president also urged the government to improve the remuneration of teachers of mathematics at all levels. The society canvassed that government should make the study of mathematics attractive to the younger generation since no discipline can be studied without it through various incentives.

He advocated for the creation of mathematics laboratory in schools in order to make the study of mathematics more easy, appreciative, and attractive for prospective lovers of the discipline in the country.

Participants at the conference appealed to the policy-makers, donors, governments, private sector and operators of higher institutions and research centres to increase research funding for mathematics in Nigeria.
