Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has called on youths in the country to come to terms with the reality of the time we are in.

Sanwo-Olu insisted that the youths must know that their university degree is no more a meal ticket, but one to open doors on self creativity, new ideas and inventions that will make the country better.

The governor spoke at the 11th convocation ceremony of the Bell’s University of Technology, Ota at the weekend.

He said, “We urge the youth in this country to come to terms with the reality of our time, that university degree is no longer a meal ticket, but one to open doors on self creativity, new ideas and inventions that will make our nation greater.

“Our nation is already a great one but we need the youth not to throw their degree away and join the bad ones that take making money as the best thing to happen to the.”

The institution’s chancellor, Ahmed Joda, in his address, called on the Federal Government to see private universities in the country as private investors in tertiary education and be accorded the desired recognition and support.

Ahmed reasoned that if the government could agree that the best in education pays the best interest, then “private investors in tertiary education should be celebrated and accorded the desired recognition and support”.

The vice chancellor, Prof Jeremiah Ojediran who spoke in the same vain said “I believe that it is time that some dues are paid to this segment of positive contributors to the society and partners in progress with the government. The modalities for this could easily be worked out with the overseeing bodies”.
