The vice-president of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has revealed the Federal Government’s intention of providing job opportunities for the nation’s teeming youths by improving technology and developing the agricultural sector.
This was, as he stressed, that the present administration is committed to solving the power problem and encouraging small scale businesses as a way of reducing graduate unemployment.
Osinbajo made this known at the 10th anniversary and 7th convocation and Honorary Award ceremony of Redeemer’s University, RUN, Ede, Osun State.
While calling on the graduating students to imbibe the spirit of truthfulness, credibility and openness, he stressed that in as much as these qualities are embedded in them, they would succeed and triumph in life.
Osinbajo, who described education as light that illuminates, stated that the road to fulfillment in life is characterized by the ability to strive for quality education.
On the provision of qualitative education for citizenry, he said; “As we are committed to the fight against corruption. We shall equally do all we can to provide qualitative education as well as providing enabling environment for Nigerian people to survive.
In his remarks, Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, charged universities in Nigeria to turn out graduates that will be able to stand on their own in terms of entrepreneurial skills.
Aregbesola urged the graduating students to be good ambassadors of their various communities, states, Nigeria and the entire world, stressing that they should continue to showcase to the world the virtues of patriotism, love, peace, professionalism and nationalism in all their endeavours.
