The Ajayi Crowther University in collaboration with RSS Nigeria Local Group is organising a talk for secondary school students on the sensitization and awareness of the importance of studying statistics and mathematics.

Mathematics and statistics are part of the keys driving force in today’s economic development. The future success of nations increasingly depends on their scientific and technological capabilities. It is not out of place to say that the process of critical thinking using mathematics, statistics and understanding their impacts are very important in today’s ever-changing world of complexities. Thus, basic knowledge of mathematics and statistics, are now among the generic skills for survival in the new economy.

Ajala (Head of Department, Pure and Applied Mathematics, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria).
