Graduation

Ola-gbadamosi of the Department of Engineering, said this while delivering his valedictory speech on Wednesday in Lagos.

The graduand, with a Cumulative Grade Point Aggregate (CGPA) of 4.88, emerged overall best graduating student for the session alongside Kareen Enumah of the Faculty of Science, who had the same CGPA.

Ola-gbadamosi said the federal government needed to take the step to ensure the country had the right manpower to drive its industries and in the long run improve its gross domestic product capacity, while reducing unemployment.

According to him, Nigeria, with the right atmosphere, will experience the youth’s application of Information and other technological means to solve humanity problems, rather than using existing ones for cyber bullying and other crimes.

“I implore the government to provide continuous funding to ensure our workshops and laboratories measure up in standard to what obtains in advanced climes.

“I also implore it to provide funds to support students’ industrial and technical visits on a weekly basis ,” the graduand added.

Ola-gbadamosi also charged the government and philanthropists to provide financial support for exceptional scholars through postgraduate study scholarships in advanced countries, to encourage academic excellence and promote nation building.

He congratulated his fellow graduating students for a job well done and charged them to go into the world and make positive difference.

“Four, five or six years ago, we were admitted into this great citadel of learning, charged with the task to embark on a journey toward acquiring fundamental knowledge and skills in our various areas of interest.

“We have started a phase in our lives and there will be many more difficulties and setbacks ahead of us.

” We have been rightly equipped by this great institution to tackle all challenges, achieve greater successes and make a difference in our communities,” he said.

According to him, his perception about education is centered on the world’s need for people who can think creatively, innovatively and independently; with the ability to proffer sustainable and pragmatic solutions.

He lauded Lagos State Government under Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode for its commendable efforts toward improving the quality of education in the state.

“The Ready, Set, Work Initiative under the Lagos State Ministry of Education has equipped us with latent skills needed to readily impact our communities,” Ola-gbadamosi said.

Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, the Vice-Chancellor, said the university graduated 10, 306 students for award of diploma and first degrees across faculties and disciplines.

Fagbohun said the institution also rewarded the effort, brilliance and outstanding performance of graduands who excelled in their various disciplines by giving them prizes and awards.

” With particular reference to first degree graduands, we will be graduating 57 first class students.

” Never in the history of the Lagos State University have we had it so good.

“This convocation is unique in the sense that two graduands, Ridwan Ola-gbadamosi from the Faculty of Engineering and Kareen Enumah of the Faculty of Science graduated with a CGPA of 4.88 to emerge as overall best graduating students, ” he said.

The Vice-Chancellor, while congratulating the graduands, noted that the world, without doubt, had become more competitive but, they had also been equipped to meet the challenges ahead.

”Do not exercise self -doubt. It shall be well with you,” he told the graduands.
