MUSLIM students of the University of Ibadan have been reminded of the need to pursue innovative ideas that will make them stand out and become important in the workplace.
They were also implored to volunteer for foundations, take professional courses and make the most of the few weeks of empowerment programmes when they get to the orientation camps of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
An entrepreneur, Mr Abiola Ajala, gave the admonitions while discussing the topic “Challenges beyond the Four Walls of the University” at the maiden edition of the entrepreneurship seminar cum induction ceremony of the University of Ibadan Muslim Graduates Association (UIMGA) organised for the 2017/2018 finalists and post-graduate Muslim students of the university.
