Why varsities produce half baked graduates, by alumni

Some alumni of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) have blamed incestant strikes by university teachers for the pool quality of graduates.

Speaking at the UNILAG Muslim Alumni Association (UMA) 5th Capacity Building Workshop in Lagos, its president, Mr Lere Alimi urged the Federal Government to stop the perenial strikes.

Alimi explained that the workshop would equip students with vocational skills that could make them self reliant outside the university.

UMA, he said, is ready to collaborate with other spirited organisations to assist in developing the students for future challenges.

A speaker, Mr Niyi Yusuf said corruption and insecurity were affecting the growth of Information Communication Technology (ICT).

He said by 2017 the country would have invested about $900million on ICT and the telecommunication industry to further boost economic activities.

Speaking on The Nigeria ICT Industry, springboard for entrepreneurship development and wealth creation, Yusuf said opportunities still exist in the industry.

Take off capital, he said, should not pose a challenge to young entrepreneurs, adding that it is better for one to start doing something small before leaving school.
