According to a statement by NOUN spokesperson, Ibrahim Sheme, the veteran journalist stated in a chat with NOUN media team during his visit that he was thrilled that Adamu attended the event in Lagos and that he was impressed to see him connect to such a a programme, given the fact that many professors “find it hard to be receptive to new ideas and new ways of doing things.”
