Lagos – The Vice President of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Engr. Margaret Oguntala, has decried the lack of social infrastructure saying it was denying the country valuable investments.
She was speaking ahead of the 2015 Engineering Conference scheduled for Akure, Ondo State in November.
Speaking about the aims of the conference, Oguntala, who is also the Conference Planning Committee Chair, stated, “There is no gainsaying that the wellbeing and capacity of human capital can only be enhanced through adequate provision of social infrastructure such as health, education and conducive living environments. It is regrettable that the country had already lost a chunk of investments to neighbouring countries on account of decaying infrastructure.”
The event will hold at the International Culture and Event Centre.
