It does not make any sense for first-class student to look for job – KWASU VC, Muhammed Akanbi
The vice-chancellor of Kwara State University (KWASU), Muhammed Akanbi has opined that it does not make sense for a first-class student to graduate and be looking for a job.
Speaking when he led the university’s management team on a visit to some selected government agencies in Abuja, He said that their school already encourage their students to engage in different entrepreneurship skills.
This is so they don’t come out of school and begin searching for a job.
“Already, we encourage our students to engage in different entrepreneurship skills, acquire, hold and consider all certificates important.
It does not make any sense if you are a first-class student and you are looking for a job. And I mean first-class in any programme.
Our university is a university of community development and entrepreneurship.
We have a centre which is being rejigged and rejuvenated.
It is now called the Centre for Vocational, Technical and Entrepreneurship because we don’t want to teach entrepreneurship just in theory.
We get our students involved in vocational things and technical aspects.
You will see students engage in things like making face masks, face shields, hand sanitizers; some are into tailoring, some are into carpentry, some are into what I call mechanical automobile repair and things like that.
