Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday said the federal government would continue to improve on the power sector to develop Small Scale Industries for economic growth in the country.
Osinbajo said in his keynote address at the 10th anniversary and 7th convocation ceremony of the Redeemer's University, Ede, Osun.
The vice-president said the present administration would also continue to invest massively in the power sector to make it more stable.
He said power sector remained the key to the development of the nation's economic growth.
Osinbajo also said that the federal government would open up more opportunities in the area of agriculture.
“Agriculture remained the key to economic development of the country.”
The vice-president also urged the graduating students to put to positive use all the training they have received.
He urged the students to continue to follow the path of integrity and honour in their dealings.
Earlier in his speech, the University's Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Debo Adeyewa, said 15 students graduated with a first class while 135 graduated with second class upper division.
Adeyewa said 200 students graduated with second class lower, while 90 graduated with 3rd class and seven with a pass.
He urged the graduating students to be good ambassadors of the institution wherever they find themselves.
“It will interest you to know that Prof. Osinbajo single-handedly drafted the university law.”
In his remark, Gov. Rauf Aregbesola commended the leadership of the Redeemed Christian Church of God for establishing the university in the state.
Aregbesola encouraged the graduating students to be self-reliant rather than job seekers.
Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of Redeem Church, urged the graduating students to continue to be steadfast and unmovable in their journey of life.
Adeboye also enjoined them to be pace setters in all their endeavours. (NAN)
