She said that the on-sight arrangement would accommodate about 300 participants in-person, while over 5,000 would participate online.
19 According to her, the summit aims for discussion that will lead to change in paradigm in teaching and learning.
20 She said that such was important as recent studies had reflected challenges relating to productive value of young people coming out of education institutions.

22 Ariyo said that a change could not be expected by sticking to the prevailing teaching and learning orientation.
