The Vice-Chancellor, Augustine University, Ilara, Epe, Prof. Christopher Odetunde, has advised students that consistent education and good character will give them fortunes.

Speaking during the seventh matriculation  of the institution where 207 new students were admitted into the university, Odetunde said despite what some people saw  as a bleak future for the country, the youth could positively change the narratives through hard work, improved moral standing, and thinking out of the box.

He said, “Remember, formal education will make you a living, but consistent education with good character formation will make you a fortune.”

Odetunde also advised them to be diligent.

“What will be your goal for coming to AUI;  Is it to join millions holding degrees without value, those pilfering our resources for their families only, or to make Nigeria work for all of us?  Today,  will you make a moral choice that will impact humanity, benefit you, your family and our nation; the choice is yours.”

He advised the students to abide by the rules and regulations that guided the community, saying they should live, learn in peace and harmony with their fellow students and with the staff.

He thanked the Catholic Church, Lagos for its support for the university and the Visioneer, Cardinal Olubunmi Okogie. He also acknowledged the Catholic Bishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Dr Adewale Martins, for his support.

In his matriculation lecture titled, ‘The Nigerian youth and education as the key to brighter future,’ the Guest Lecturer, Prof. Sola Fosudo, said in spite of all odds, education was still key to succeeding in life.

According to him, any youth who thinks there is a shortcut to success will regret it later in life.

He admonished the students to strive to be the best in their studies.
