The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said that the incoming administration of President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, will tackle the problem of insecurity, unemployment and other issues confronting the nation with the seriousness that they deserve.
Tinubu, who is also the Chancellor of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, said this at the 12th convocation of the university on Thursday.
The APC leader, whose speech was read by Mr. Akin Kekereekun, said that Nigerians made the right choice by voting Buhari during the presidential election, saying the President-elect would work hard to justify the confidence reposed in him by Nigerians.
The APC leader also said that Nigerians would need a change of attitude towards nation building.
He stated that every Nigerian, especially the youths, must be ready to contribute their quota towards building a prosperous nation.
Tinubu said, “We should all be prepared for a change of attitude towards nation building. The incoming administration will tackle problems confronting Nigeria–insecurity–with seriousness.
“A great opportunity is presented to us and we can no longer afford to pay lip service to youth development. You have now elected a President who will honour his duty. The youths must also be willing partners with the government in building the nation.”
The chancellor called on the graduates to be good ambassadors of the university and to contribute their quotas to the development of the nation.
The Vice Chancellor of LAUTECH, Prof. Adeniyi Gbadegesin, said the institution had contributed a great deal to the development of the nation in the past 25 years.
He said that the university, which was founded on April 23, 1990, had produced many graduates who had brought honour to the nation and the institution.
Gbadegesin stated that a graduate of Computer Science and Engineering of the university, Mr. Olaolu Ayoola, designed a surveillance drone which took off to the admiration of dignitaries at the National Youth Service Corps permanent orientation camp, Ede in Osun State where he is serving.
