"University Degree Not An Assurance For Job" – Buhari Tells Nigerian Graduates 3

President Muhammadu Buhari has told Nigerian graduates that earning a university degree is not an assurance for employment, but something that would help them to face the challenges of life.

President Buhari, who was represented by the Minister of State for Education, Professor Anthony Anwuka stated this at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) at the 13th convocation ceremony of the institution for the conferment of higher degrees, postgraduate diplomas and honorary degrees.

Buhari vowed that the current government would continue to address youth unemployment and underemployment in the country.

He also called on the youths to embrace the opportunities the Federal Government had put in place to mitigate the situation. He said:

“You are cautioned that university degrees do not usher you into an El Dorado.

“It rather equips you with the competence to grapple with the ever-changing challenges of life of which youth unemployment is a vexatious part.

“The Federal Government will remain undaunted in tackling the challenges of youth unemployment and underemployment through a matrix of initiatives.

“Such initiatives include N-Power, the Bank of Industry Youth Entrepreneurship Support Programme and the Central Bank of Nigeria and Bank of Agriculture support schemes.”
