I stand before you today with great honour as we celebrate the 35th Convocation of Yaba College of Technology, a beacon of academic excellence and technological innovation for the past 76 years.
This institution holds a special place in our nation’s educational heritage, steadfastly maintaining its identity and purpose. Today’s celebration marks another significant milestone, and I commend the authorities for organizing a lecture that addresses a crucial issue of our time: “Empowering Nigerian Youths in the Present Day Economy.”
Yaba College of Technology, much like renowned institutions globally, has retained its original name, becoming an integral part of our national history. I call upon regulatory bodies to consider granting it university status without insisting on a name change.
This recognition would ensure that institutions like Yaba College of Technology continue their historic contribution to our educational landscape.
