… Implores students to get involved in nation-building

Minister of State for Education, Dr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has charged students, teaching and non-teaching staff to ensure that educational institutions continue to be a place where moral values are groomed and cultivated.

The minister gave the charge during the 34th Convocation Ceremony of the University of Calabar, Cross River State, at the weekend.

In his address, Dr. Nwajiuba reminded them that tertiary institutions are not just a place to gain academic knowledge but also a ground where moral ethics and cultural values are inculcated.

“On behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari, I wish to remind the school management of the responsibility of universities which is being the ground for the cultivation and grooming of moral values that guide the trajectory to tomorrow’s development and therefore can’t afford to underscore the moral imperative in the effort to gain knowledge and confront the problems of the world,” he said.

The minister was joined at the ceremony by the Pro Chancellor, University of Calabar, Sen. Nkechi Nwogu, deputy governors of Cross River and Kwara States; Senior Special Assistant, SSA, to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Sen. Ita Enang;  Sen Ita Giwa and other government officials.

Similarly, Nwajiuba has implored Nigerian students to play their part in nation building.

He stated this during the 26th Joint Convocation Ceremony of the Federal College of Education (Technical), Umunze, Anambra State, at the weekend.

The minister while commending the school’s Provost, Dr. Tessy Okoli, for her doggedness, innovative and leadership qualities, noted that students can participate in building the nation by contributing the knowledge and skills they have learnt, adding that; “One way you can contribute is to impact your knowledge on students of basic and secondary schools.”
