EKOCITY Assures Distinction Students Of Automatic Employment
STUDENTS of Eko College of Management & Technology ( Ekocity), Lagos have been advised to work hard on their studies to make distinctions to enjoy automatic employment.
The Rector of the College, Mr. Segun Oshundairo, who gave the advice at the third matriculation ceremony of the College, promised automatic employment to outstanding students either within the institution, or in any of the organisations within their business group.
He assured that employment or entrepreneurship opportunity was already waiting two years ahead of the students who could end up graduating in distinction in the College.
Oshundairo urged the matriculating students to strive to distinguish themselves, pointing out that there is always a way out for the distinguished, no matter how tough the operating environment is. “Just get it right, the sky is your limit.”
In the matriculation address, he pointed out that the leaders owed it a duty to support the aspirations of the young ones to achieve worthy goals.
He further remarked that the youths needed mentorship in order to be well guided in life, noting that it was the reason Ekocity had made mentorship part of its programme.
Oshundairo charged the matriculating students to get it right from the begin
ning and to continue to thirst after knowledge and skill acquisition.
He said this generation was lucky considering the opportunities and facilities available to them, noting that some years back, things were not so.
“When we were in school, we did not have a number of the facilities which you now have. We are now in a new age. It is the age of the Internet, the age of technology, where virtually everything now has technology content or technological implications. Even the good old dancing has gone technological.”
The Rector congratulated the students, pointing out that the matriculation ceremony confirms them as students of the College.
Also speaking, Nollywood veteran, Mrs. Idowu Phillips ( Mama Rainbow) who was one of the dignitaries present, advised the students to face their studies and avoid distractions and frivolities.
She urged the students to be good ambassadors of their homes and to learn with all seriousness and commitment so they could become fulfilled in life.
Phillips urged them to keep their values and avoid negative influence from friends and peers.
