He said the NIM chartered ,Abeokuta organised the lecture for the purpose of training members, saying, ” and here is the pandemic, we all need to learn, unlearn and relearn because most of the things we hold in the past are no longer relevant and as managers, we have to be relevant at all times.”

While advising the general public , Adebayo said both men and women should learn to increase on the skills.
