SANGO-OTA (OGUN) – Crawford University, Igbesa, Ogun, on Thursday, said the institution embarked on entrepreneurial training that would make its graduating students to be job providers for the nation.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Samson Ayanlaja, said this at the 6th convocation ceremony and conferment of honourary first degrees, doctorate degrees and presentation of prizes for 2013/2014 session in Ota.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 310 graduating students participated in the ceremony.
They comprised 14 students bagging first class honours, 79 in second class upper division, 127 in second class lower division, 59 with third class, six receiving ordinary pass and 25 postgraduate students.
Ayanlaja said the university was involved in entrepreneurial training in fish farming, vegetable gardening, fashion designing, shoe making, bead craft and event planning.
He added that “the institution is trying to address the unemployment rate in the country by attempting to bridge the skill gap and by exposing them to hands on entrepreneurial skills that can lead to jobs creation instead of being job seekers.’’
He noted that the institution was determined to produce a new generation of work force and leaders that were skillful, honest and highly self-disciplined to tackle corruption by infusing the words of God into students.
He said “it is alarming and distressing to note however that 60 million youths in Nigeria are unemployed partly due to relocation of industries to neighbouring countries where electricity is stable.’’
He added that the unemployed youths could have been contributing to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and eradicate poverty if there was stable electricity.
The vice-chancellor said “no nation can achieve meaningful economic growth if it majorly depends on imported goods.’’
Ayanlaja then stressed the need for collaboration between government and other institutions to tackle the nation’s unemployment challenge. (NAN)
