HoS Harps on Entrepreneurial Skills for Sustainable Development

Certificates and academic qualifications can no longer sustain anyone except entrepreneurial skills are built to sustain the nation’s economy.

Ogun State Head of Service (HoS), Mr. Kolawole Fagbohun, made this known in a goodwill message delivered at the 3rd convocation ceremony of the Redeemer’s College of Technology and Management (RECTEM), at the Redemption City, Mowe, Ogun State.

Represented by the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Mr. Jola Oyeneye, the HoS urged the students to think of sustainable ways that require skills and expertise in the technological-driven society, saying knowledge and skills that the graduands acquired must be utilised to create wealth and become job providers rather than job seekers.

Earlier, the Visitor to the College, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, represented by his wife and Mother-in-Israel of the Mission, Pastor (Mrs.) Folu Adeboye, while releasing the father’s blessing on the graduating students, admonished them to put God first in everything and strive to be the best in whatever they do.

Speaking, the Rector of RECTEM, Dr. (Mrs.) Stella Mofunanya, outlined the achievements of the institution in the area of academic excellence, youth and sports, including approval to run Higher National Diploma programmes, awards for entrepreneurship development and introduction of new programmes for the college, among others.

She advised the graduating students to see the National Diploma certificates as the beginning of their educational pursuits and success.

Responding on behalf of the graduands, the Best Graduating Student, Miss Esther Ocha, appreciated the management of the school for the opportunity to excel in their academics, noting that, “education remains a passport that guarantees the future which can only be reaped by those who invested in it”.
