The new Pro-Chancellor of Fountain University Osogbo, Vice Admiral Jubrilla Ayinla has advised students to embrace entrepreneurial skills so as to enable them to be job creators rather than job seekers, adding that the situation of the country’s economy do not guarantee jobs for graduates. He made this statement during a tour around the university campus recently.
The former Chief of Naval Staff reiterated the need for students to have practical skills without having to look for white collar jobs. He then added that a recommendation will be made to the National Universities Commission soon that a four-year course should be extended to five years where a year will be set aside for learning of entrepreneurship skills and studies.
During the tour, the Pro-Chancellor visited various infrastructures and buildings on the campus including the hostels, lecture rooms, the health care centre, the Staff Quarters and the University Mosque under construction.
The new Pro-Chancellor was accompanied by the Vice- Chancellor, Professor Amidu Sanni; Registrar, Mrs Wosilat Sallee; the University Librarian, Dr. Salman AbdSalam; the Bursar, Mrs. Silifat Alli Balogun and the new Director of Works, Engineer AbdSemiu Odenike among other members of staff of the university.
