Prof. Ibe Calls For A Finishing School For Engineers …As NSE Visits


To achieve the best engineering practices, an acclaimed investor and employer of skilled and unskilled labour in Abia State, Prof. Gregory Ibe has called for a finishing school for engineers as obtainable in other professional bodies.

Speaking when the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE Umuahia branch paid a courtesy visit to him at Uturu, Prof. Ibe who is also the founder and Chancellor of Gregory University Uturu, GUU maintained that the school will help perfect the jobs, skills and other critical elements, as it affects the engineering profession.

He decried that the engineers have lost lots of opportunities to artisans as a result of lack of entry behaviour as most engineers are not practically oriented.
