Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Sunday charged new graduates of Fountain University, Osogbo to be good ambassadors of the institution and the nation.
Speaking at the seventh convocation and 10th anniversary of the creation of the university, Aregbesola charged the graduates to strive to be the solution providers to challenges facing the society.
Aregbesola said “you must study your environment, identify its problems and find solutions to them. Those that can think, innovate and seek means of finding solutions to challenges can never be poor”.
“You must take the present challenges confronting our nation as opportunity to make a difference and you must work hard as good ambassadors of this renowned university to transform your individual’s lives, your immediate society and our nation’s economy.”
“If our country in spite of her several years of independence could still be spending billions of naira on importation of refined petroleum, food items and other household equipment, thus we must be productive.
“Every sector in this country required productivity because it is unheard of that in spite our vast mineral resources and vast land, our productivity has been very low”, Aregbesola said.
