He recently revealed this via his goodwill message at the 22nd Matriculation of Igbinedion University, Okada, in Edo.
According to him, this is the best time for Nigeria to refocus from one size-fits-all approach that creates employees that are not fit for complex jobs, and look for better solutions.
He added that the country needs an educational system that will produce employees with skills, and the ability to handle complex jobs and create opportunities for others.
His words, “As a nation, we must focus our educational system to one that shifts to prepare our students in different skills set; the one that empowers and creates job, rather for low pay jobs that has no value for nation building in the competitive world.”
“We must pay attention on building skilled graduates that can provide jobs not only for themselves, but for others.”
“No doubt, Igbinedion University must set the pace for providing value adding education in line with global best practice.”
“With the disruption in world economy due to COVID-19 pandemic and continuous search for job opportunities across the globe particularly in Africa, our education system must be value driven.”
“I am also aware that this university has been adopted by the NUC as a model for a nationwide entrepreneurial skill acquisition programme for Nigerian universities.”
“This great effort of this institution deserves the support of all and sundry especially at this critical time that high unemployment rate continuous to pose greater challenges to our existence as a nation.”
