PROF ABUBAKAR APPLIES MATHS MODELLING TO HEALTH, ENVIRONMENT

Federal University of Technology, Minna.

The lecture titled: “Predictive Stochastic Modelling Of Leprosy Disease, Human Health Condition And Desertification In Nigeria: The Untapped Open Secret Ingredients,” was held at the Caverton Lecture Theatre, Main Campus.

Prof. Abubakar disclosed in the lecture that he had, through mathematical modelling, studied the leprosy disease and human health condition focusing on the stages when patients were under treatment, recovered, relapsed or died due to the disease.

He also predicted the levels of likelihood of having leprosy patients with grade one and grade two disabilities, just as he had studied blood inventory in General Hospital, Minna and human daily health condition.

On desertification in Nigeria, Prof. Abubakar applied mathematical modelling through which he had projected the amount of land lost in the savannah region of the country.

The Inaugural Lecturer, however, observed that there was a gap between mathematical model builders and the intended model users, due largely to the inability of the latter to understand fundamental mathematics.

He therefore called on government and non-governmental organizations to extensively utilise the quantitative information emanating from mathematical models.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Musbau Adewumi Akanji FAS, FNSBMB, commended Prof. Abubakar for the lecture and thanked members of the University community and the general public for attending.
