Director/Chief Executive Welcome Address

You are welcome to National Mathematical Centre, an International Centre of Excellence in Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics, Mathematical Sciences Education, Statistics, Theoretical Physics and Computer Science).  Since its establishment over 28 years ago, NMC has played vital roles in the development of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences in Nigeria.

As an inter-University Centre, the NMC occupies a special place in the Nigerian Education system. Its unique role of inter-relating with all Universities and other tertiary institutions buttresses the fact that it is distinctly different from other research institutions and Parastatals.

In these over 28 years of its existence, numerous Mathematicians/Scientists have benefited from the NMC programmes and activities, young talents have been identified and developed in the area of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences and also some Secondary schools in the States that keyed into the NMC’s Mathematical Improvement Project (MIP) have recorded impressive improved performances in WAEC and NECO examinations.

To improve on its performance, the NMC has reorganised its activities in line with Trending researches in the core academic programmes (Mathematics, Computer science, Statistics, Theoretical Physics and Mathematical sciences education) of the Centre. In the same light, Research proposals on contemporary issues that are internationally competitive are constantly being developed; Seeking Mathematical solutions to some national challenges in the area of economy, agriculture, environment, health, etc. High level research oriented lectures organized by invited distinguished Professors aimed at opening up researchable areas and throwing up research questions and Academic oriented workshops, Conferences, colloquia and Seminars are routinely organized.

On my part, I will not rest on my hoax until creditable development is achieved and sustained in the mathematical sciences and by extension Science and Technology in Nigeria

With best wishes,

Professor Stephen E. Onah

Director/Chief Executive, NMC
