This is a wrong perspective and it is of shallow mind, for the fact that we are partners to foreign schools in research training and research work does not give us the approval to train or offer foreign degree in Nigeria without due process as the collaboration we have is specifically on research training and research project work, DRIB cannot and does not do such rather we focused mainly on our Biotechnological mandate as approved to us by the government.
