DEGREES WITHOUT SKILLS WILL SOON BECOME USELESS – JAMB REGISTRAR

Published

on

The Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, has urged Nigerian youths to seek demonstrable skills as a means of survival, warning that very soon university degrees would no longer be the sole guarantor in the job market.

Oloyede gave the advice on Thursday while delivering the convocation lecture at the Kwara State University, Malete.

He delivered a lecture, titled: “Learning, Unlearning and Relearning – Prerequisites of the Digital Age.”

The JAMB registrar said, “New opportunities will emerge in the high-tech sector and many skills that were not otherwise taught in conventional schools would be needed. Degrees would no longer be the sole guarantors of jobs but demonstrable skills will.

Oloyede stressed that: “Those who can learn, unlearn and relearn are the successful ones and those without the mindset that accommodates the triad are bound to perpetually lament.”

While noting that today’s world was different from the Stone Age, the JAMB registrar noted that: “One of the factors responsible for this change is the totality of what makes the information age, which is still evolving as technology develops rapidly.
