Your degrees, diplomas are visas for bright future -UNN VC tells graduands

The Vice Chancellor, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Prof. Charles Igwe, has assured the new graduates of the institution that the degrees and diplomas awarded them would be the visas that would open doors and usher them into glorious future.

Igwe gave the assurances at the 52nd Convocation of the university held at the Nsukka main campus on Friday.

“I am hopeful that the degrees and diplomas you have earned today will serve as Visas to a bright future, a good career and a better life,” he said.

Igwe said the degrees would not only open doors but would offer them good career and better life, adding that degrees of the UNN are awarded to only those deserving of such awards.

According to him, though Nigeria is grappling with teething economic hardship, the degrees and diplomas they earned would see them through anywhere in the world because UNN is a university to be reckoned with in Nigeria and beyond.

“The degrees of the University of Nigeria are still recognised across the world and our alumni have continued to compete favourably even in today’s fast moving world.

“Globalisation has made the world even smaller and you can seek employment in other countries where more opportunities exist.

“The trainings you have received in entrepreneurship have also equipped you to become innovators and job creators who would not wait to be employed by government or other employers,” he declared.

Speaking in like manner, the Chancellor of the University, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi said that every Nigerian must put hands on the deck to see Nigeria surmount the economic visititudes.

Ogunwusi noted that UNN has been a good breeding ground for dependable and quality workforce that can turn Nigeria around.

“Our country is going through a very challenging phase and all hands must be on deck if we must overcome the challenges.

“I am happy that the University of Nigeria has remained a good breeding ground for good quality and dependable workforce which we need to develop our country and the world in general.

“I am also confident that our latest graduates are equally quality-assured, well-motivated and would contribute in our drive to restore the dignity of man,” he said.
