The year 2020 heralds the commencement of a new decade and it brings to appreciation the occurrence of the fourth industrial revolution which is already here. The success or failures of our fresh graduates in the next decade and beyond will be dependent on their dynamism, ability to adapt and learn new things while unlearning the old ones as things are rapidly changing. I urged graduating students at the Maiden Graduation Ceremony of the Mountain Top University, Ibafo owned by the Mountain of Fire Ministries to be fully prepared with the tools and the languages of the fast changing technology world, in order to compete with multitudes of other graduates in the quest for jobs and employment. I was the guest lecturer at this convocation ceremony where I delivered a lecture titled: “Future of Job and the World of Work: The Need for Graduates that are globally competitive.” I expressed the fact that many of the things learnt in University become obsolete even before NYSC completion. Fifty or a hundred years ago, we didn’t know that new technologies would have emerged to disrupt the world as we know it. Globalization has shaped the way we interpret the world we live in today. The rules that once governed a world composed of distinct nations are being re-written. Under the impact of technology, especially modern communication and transportation technologies, the world has taken on the characteristics of a “global village” with implications for the present and the future of work and job opportunities.” I hereby congratulate the 120 maiden graduating students and I charge them to be worthy ambassadors of this great institution with a solid foundation.
