Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, Vice-Chancellor of LASU, announced the donation at the university’s 25th convocation lecture on Thursday.

The Convocation Lecture’s topic was. “Global Trends: Nigeria and its Place in the World. Do We Love Ourselves Enough”.
Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, represented Tinubu at the occasion.

Tinubu spoke at the occasion, urging the government to encourage critical industries that employ young people and unleash their economic potential.

He claimed that government support for strategic manufacturing and industries would make it easier for young people to start firms.

“National industrial and employment policies must jump from the pages of documents and come to real life.

“This will help to reform the society to improve the economic prospects of young people in it.

“We need a new more convivial way, a way that gives you the right start at a fair chance of durable prosperity.

“This is the moral duty of progressive government to resurrect a flagging economy; to do what the private sector can not do by itself,” Tinubu said.

He went on to say that our country’s compass should no longer be pointing towards poverty rather than prosperity, and towards scarcity rather than abundance.

“You graduates today should not live half lives or to subject your tremendous talents and aspirations to an economic condition that does not allow their full vent.

”That you now graduate from this exemplar of learning and knowledge means the right answer is within you.

“You have been equipped with the intellectual rigor, knowledge and an active social conscience all compelling you to place this right answer into practice,” Tinubu said.

He saw that no community could last long under an atmosphere of distrust and animosity.

“To flourish, there must be a full understanding that every Nigerian, regardless of place or circumstance, is equally entitled to the fundamental good things all human beings deserve and desire.

“Let us not befool ourselves, history is patient yet not forever lenient regarding negligent folly, there comes a time when there is no time.

“Either action is taken, and the urgent word said or precious chance slips away, lost forever. Our nation approaches such a moment,” Tinubu said.
