He urged them to always prepare themselves ahead for opportunities and to imbibe the policy of honesty and self-discipline which he said were critical factors to their success in life and business.

Osinbajo said, “You are graduating at the most advanced moment in human history. The smartphone you have in your hands today has more computing power than in the Apollo Spacecraft that took man to the moon in July of 1969.

“Let me assure you that there is plenty of hope; there are more opportunities available for success now than ever before. There is a whole new world of opportunity especially with the Internet and digital technology.”
