Chancellor admonishes youths on life-ready skills 



Chancellor of Kings University, Matthew Ashimolowo, has admonished young people to master important life skills, many of which are not in the academic curriculum of the current educational system.
He challenged youths to focus on providing solutions and be equipped with life-ready skills and information that would make them highflyers among their peers.
He gave this advice while addressing students and members of the university community in one of his lecture series titled, ‘Things they will not teach you in the university’.
In the lecture, he stated that the world was full of opportunities for those who can spot problems and proffer solutions to them. 
According to him, some of the tips needed to be successful are not readily available in the academic curriculum.
“Many of you will leave this institution with your degrees. However, you need to realise that the world of work is changing, the general sociology of the world is changing. Along with this truth is the fact that certain skills which are not considered fit for university curriculum will be needed by you,” he said.
Ashimolowo, who is also a clergyman with the Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), explained that several informal skills are necessary to achieve in different aspects of life such as how to sell, how to lead, how money works, how to negotiate, how to start a business, and how to resolve conflicts, among others.
He said the vision of Kings University founded by KICC in 2015, was to raise quality leaders that would transform Nigeria and continually sustain her as a technologically advanced nation.
He added that the varsity believed that a solution could be found to the devastating problems facing Nigeria, and the answer needed was the transformation of the mind of the coming generation.
