His followers also shared their thoughts about the post and here are some reactions;
@olusok – That’s a one-sided view of development sir
@ahovi_usman – Sir the way and method they are teaching some of those courses you mentioned you will shocked especially engineering
@_badboyriz – The courses you mentioned as a criteria for development would definitely yield material benefit but Nation-building does not depend on physical needs alone.. you only attain true freedom when you experience a wave of social change which is vital to control our social values..
