• The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta, Professor Olusola Oyewole, has expressed his displeasure over the increasing rate of unemployment of graduates from the nation’s tertiary institutions.

    Prof. Oyewole made this known during the Tertiary Education Trust Fund’s 2-Day Capacity Building Workshop on “Entrepreneurship Education and Training for Entrepreneurship Lecturers in Public Tertiary Institutions”, held in the University.

    The VC, who was represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Development), Professor Kolawole Salako, said the increasing rate of unemployment among graduates had led to insecurity and decrease in the standard of living of the citizenry.

    He, however, thanked the Federal Government for the introduction of entrepreneurial training and studies into the curriculum of Nigerian Universities, which he noted, was an innovation that would in a way, empower the youths, increase economic growth and enhance the standard of living of the people.

    The Vice-Chancellor also appreciated TETFund for ensuring that theories that were imparted into the students became transformed into practical experience, through the series of capacity-building programmes put in place.

    Dr. Babayo also stressed the need for the introduction of entrepreneurship studies into the curriculum of Nigerian tertiary institutions, with the hope of changing the focus and quality of graduates.

    This, according to him, would help prepare the nation for the future in line with the global trend of placing entrepreneurship as a major component of economic growth.
