“My time at this premier institution not only reinforced my belief in the equalizing power of education, but here, I also learned the wisdom of viewing each other as brothers and sisters in word and action.
“To achieve the society we desire, we must build a synergy between the gown and the town, between the public and the private, and between the student and the practising specialists,” he said.
The vice president expressed confidence in Nigeria’s ability to overcome challenges, acknowledging the intellectual capabilities of its citizens and the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Today, I wish to share with you that even as Nigeria strives to overcome the consequences of geopolitical events around us and the domestic threats to our lives and the economy, we are comforted by your intellectual capabilities to understand the necessity of the decisions we have taken to salvage Nigeria.
“Our government stands resolute in confronting these obstacles, and in our belief in working together to build the Nigeria of our dream,” he said.
