By Uthman Samad

Yesterday 11th of October was a memorable and historic moment as The Nigerian former President stormed Obafemi Awolowo university ile ife to give lecture. 

Chief (Dr) Olusegun Obasanjo expressed the opportunities, curled from the agricultural sector, as a way of  occluding the country's longtime unemployment issues and gave an headway

Mr olusegun said this while rendering his speech at a job fair on the topic; "unemployment in Nigeria: The Way Out" organised by faculty of Environmental Design and Management


He hammered on the different job opportunities available in agricultural enterprise as he as a  "sole business person in the agricultural business" had "discovered the great job opportunities in agriculture"

In his address to the students, he noted that the only problem Nigeria has is being unable to discover these opportunities simply because of the system that seems not to be encouraging the platform for youthsy yet. 

This news agency learnt that Mr. Obasanjo owns one of the largest farms in Nigeria, located in Sango-Ota area of Ogun state with varieties of poultry, livestock and food products.

This means  that, it is very important we start discovering the immense opportunities in agriculture by embracing agriculture passionately," He added.

However, the Vice-Chancellor of the varsity, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede, said while giving his speech that it is quite pathetic to realise that the present system is unable to provide employment for  seekers.

 "The present curriculum in the university is currently undergoing a design to bridge this gap. And this has been going on through the various seminars  the university has been organising and hosting to ensure that  what ever courses every students offered on this campus will be able to equip them for the current Job challenge."

Ogunbodede, a Don of  Dental Public Health, highlighted that the aim in the curricular design is to ensure that every students stand on their own and earn a living after school.

 He added that several organisations like First Bank PLC have been partnering with the university to achieve this aim of job creation.
