Prof. Nwajiuba used the event to call on Nigerians to get serious about things, noting that development cannot take place through happenstance, wishful thinking and head knowledge but through deliberate efforts and functional knowledge. The Vice Chancellor further stressed the importance of timely and quality execution of the projects, advising the contractors to be true to their mandates and avoid cutting corners while executing the works.

In their response, the contractors pledged to be professional in the course of executing the projects, and vowed to leave positive footprints in the University through their works.
