The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has described Nigerians as religious people, who are not necessarily godly.

According to him, many Nigerians shun hard work but turn to prayers, thinking being religious will guarantee them results.

Oloyede called on Nigerians to harness the vast endowment of the country to turn its situation around.

He said Nigerians should, for instance, exploit the country’s agricultural potential.
