Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has said that Nigerian women have every right, duty and responsibility to be in Mathematics because it is a compulsory tool for solving problems at all levels.

Speaking at the inaugural meeting/workshop of Nigerian Women in Mathematics for National Development, Commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs Atinuke Osunkoya, who together with Ms Funke Olunloyo, Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, represented Governor Ajimobi said, “Women are ready to take strides. Women are intelligent, brilliant and creative.”

She also noted that the coming together of women for Mathematics at this time couldn’t have been more apt, as it would add quality, development and peace to national development.

The programme, which had as its theme: “Popularisation of Mathematics among women,” was held at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, University of Ibadan, Ibadan.

Professor (Mrs) Adenike Osofisan, Director, University of Ibadan Business School, who represented the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Isaac Adewole, noted that wrong people taught Mathematics.

“It is not every science graduate that can teach Mathematics. There is no misery in Mathematics. It is very simple and logical. It is the mindset that makes Mathematics different. People put fear of Mathematics in people,” she added.
