Admonition to newly matriculated Ladokites

Over 7,000 new college students of Ladoke Akintola College of Know-how (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo state celebrated their matriculation ceremony with pomp and pageantry. It is a nice success.

There are two genres of scholars, they’re the intense and the unserious ones. Severe ones shall be ruminating on the godly strategies they’ll utilise to graduate with flying color whereas these of the opposite calibre of individuals shall be cogitating on methods to affiliate themselves with new mates who will broaden their horizon in turning into an skilled web swindler and plenty of different unscrupulous endeavours which have enveloped this twenty first century.

Training, they are saying, is a potent weapon to combat ignorance; absence of it’s outright obscurity. It’s unlucky that in Nigeria holding of first-degree certificates (B.Sc., B. Ed, B. Sc. Edu, B. Tech, B. A. and so on.) is tantamount to a sachet of water which is often dumped on the ground.

Lots of of hundreds of individuals are graduating yearly from universities, polytechnics, schools, and so on. with no employment alternative and a few are nonetheless gaining admission. Gone are the times when job searching for often requires low effort. What’s the hope of the unemployed graduates? Ought to they be optimistic or pessimistic? Nevertheless, some individuals are fortunate, they safe jobs simply.

On this nation, the extent of employment alternative is low. This may be avouched by the histrionic and on the identical lugubrious incidence that occurred on fifth September, 2022 in LAUTECH wherein an alumnus stormed the establishment, because of what looks as if despair, wished to return his first-degree certificates, requested the schooling he has paid since he secured admission into the citadel of studying. That is very unsavoury though, he has been receiving monetary help.

It’s crystal incontrovertible fact that success in life can by no means be assured by the extent of schooling one attains. Nevertheless, it is going to be greater than nice to be educated than being a mere ignorant within the society. Formal schooling, that’s educating and studying course of, being carried out within the 4 partitions of the classroom, is for the upliftment of the society.

On this epoch, social vices aren’t seen as sin however as only a lifestyle by some ‘moral-lacking’ college students. Social vices reminiscent of cultism, examination malpractice, gangsterism, fornication, sexual assault, consuming of alcohol and unleashing of ruckus in and outdoors the campus, to say however a number of, are widespread place.

Severe college students who’ve the mindset of graduating in flying color are herein admonished to shun all of the ethical decadence highlighted above. I’m not saying the scholars mustn’t create friendship as a result of the secondary function of attending larger establishment of studying is to garner connections which frequently makes a person to have immense affect throughout a specific entity.

Contrarily, in response to the analysis, the hazard being wreaked by peer group is immense than the constructive ones. College students should watch out with the form of friends they transfer with – birds of a feather flock collectively.

The regulation and order of the college also needs to be religiously adhered to, to keep away from being a prey of who shall be on the lists of notorious college students within the establishment which places a stain to his immaculate toga of integrity sooner or later.

Congratulations to the newly matriculated college students of Ladoke Akintola College of Know-how, Ogbomoso, Oyo state. Success awaits you all.
