The former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande, on Wednesday, lamented that the average of 100,000 youths turned out yearly in institutions across the country, “have been forced to become parasites, ignorant bullies, tricksters and, largely, objects of sorrow by falling into the hands of exploiters, sex-agents, militants and, sometimes, into outright crimes”.

Akande, who is also a former Governor of Osun State, speaking during the 25th and 26th combined convocation and 40th anniversary of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, where he was conferred with an honorary Doctor of Public Administration, charged the nation’s tertiary institutions to lay emphasis on production of employable and self-employable science-driven technological minds.

He said, “Ironically, the graduates of the nation’s tertiary institutions are expected to be creators of abundant goods and productive services.”

Akande said the emphasis of university academic independence “must be to produce employable and self-employable science-driven technological minds” rather than admission of as many as possible students merely to rake in revenues for the recruitment and promotion of lecturers to professors and for the creating of more and more departments for our educational institutional staff members”.
