Why do Research if it will not Benefit the Society- Dr Raphael to Nigeria Universities

A facebook user,Dr Raphael James who might be an official at the Center for Research,Information Management and Media Development(CRIMMD) has expressed his grief towards academic institutions that dispose off candidates’  thesis due to reasons known to the institutions after a period of submission.

Dr Raphael laments “In your final year in the university it is compulsory you write a ‘final year project’ which is a test of your ability to do research. 

You are to formulate hypothesis,review related literatures, sometimes you do interviews, surveys and other research techniques, which may include both present and historical information. 

The result of your research work can be used for further research works either to support it or to disagree with it. Most university undergraduates today, don’t even bother to do a proper research work , they copy from old projects and change the identity of the owners.”

That is by the way.

“For a university, an academic institution to throw away the project findings of her final year students, this is the end of education in Nigeria. Why go to school, why do research if it will not be used to benefit the society? 

I am appealing please any university that wants to throw away things like this should donate it to CRIMMD Library, we will be glad to keep the rubbish.” He said.
