It is given unto a few men to know what the future holds in all disciplines. So also it is in science. Many distinguished scientists in the early 20th Century, in their far-sighted wisdom and knowledge, made prognostications of possible future breakthroughs in their domain. The result of this was the endless chains of fruitful research directions and a plethora of mind-blowing scientific advances. This is indeed a task the Science Nigeria Lectures 2017 has taken upon itself: to picture what would be of science and the world at large in the next century.
The Science Nigeria Lectures is essentially an effort towards not only promoting the works and contributions of Nigerian scientists, but also in interfacing them with the Nigerian public. The lecture also strives to inculcate the much-needed scientific culture in the lives of Nigerians, and at the same time, generate and sustain interest in the sciences in public domain. Through these lectures, many become aware of the exploits of Nigerian scientists in the global scientific arena.
