KU VC harps on the need for students to be diligent

 DSC0836The Vice Chancellor, Professor Oladiran Famurewa, has reiterated the commitment of the Institution to inculcate in students the virtues of excellence and integrity, as he enjoined students to be diligent as they stood at the threshold of their dreams. The Vice Chancellor stated these at the occasion of the third University Lecture and the fourth matriculation ceremony of the Institution. He noted that matriculation is a formal admission into a tertiary institution, he then admonished the 46 matriculated students to maximize all the opportunities which their admission and university education would offer to accomplish their desires.
Welcoming parents and guests on the occasion, Professor Famurewa admonished the parents to encourage their wards to learn any vocational skill of their choice so as to propel the students to more relevance in the society. The VC explained that this was in line with the vision of the Institution to strike a balance between education and vocation, so that graduates who are not out of touch with the realities of the society are produced.
At the occasion, the guest lecturer, Professor Olayiwola Oladele, (a foremost Professor of Law) challenged all stakeholders in the Nigerian higher education sector to strive at generating and contextualizing knowledge for national development. The Law don observed that doing this would help the nation's higher institutions of learning to move from 'research and development' to 'research for development'. Speaking on the topic Higher Education: Back to the Basics, Surmounting the Present and Strategizing for the Future, Professor Oladele opined that in order to achieve a functional transition, there must be a paradigm shift in the higher learning mode.
He said, "It is expected that institutions of higher learning would generate relevant knowledge that would be applied in solving national problems, beginning with identifiable ones in the immediate environment. This lecture places a challenge before all stakeholders in the knowledge industry to contextualise development by fashioning the methodology and paradigm that will make it happen in impactful ways." The university don, therefore, implored both the government and the knowledge industry to collaborate in maximizing the industrial clusters in the six geo-political zones in the nation for the benefit of increased research for development.
The Chancellor of the institution, Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo, represented by Pastor Femi Faseru, also encouraged the matriculants to be focused in their studies. The Chancellor further admonished the students to pursue excellence so that when they graduate, they would be able to compete globally.
Also present at the occasion were High Chief Faseru and Prophetess Faseru, the Registrar, the University Librarian, Deans of Faculties, Heads of Departments, lecturers, parents, staff, students and well-wishers.
