Fashola To LASU Graduands- Only Hard Work Provides Sustainable Wealth Not Money Ritual

Former Governor of Lagos, Babatunde Raji Fashola has asked Nigerian graduates to always imbibe the spirit of self discipline and shun money ritual and all forms of  of unholy act , saying only hardwork provides sustainable wealth and success in life 

Fashola, the immediate former Minister of Works and Housing gave the charge on Tuesday while delivering the 27th Convocation Lecture of the Lagos State University titled "Embracing the Future: Navigating the Intersection of Technology and Humanity.” on the Ojo main campus of the university 

"Only hard work provides sustainable wealth; not rituals, not fake pastors or imams and not trafficking illicit drugs.You are graduating into a world of technology at a time when Talent is being rewarded at an unprecedented level", he cautioned 

He asked the graduating students of the 2022/2023 academic session to always  embrace the future with their skills and self discipline , urging them to make good use of skills acquired as undergraduate and opportunities being offered by era of technology 

I'm urging you all to step forward today, embrace the future with your skills and self-discipline, embrace a season of technological marvel and prepare for enormous possibilities of prosperity that elevate the human race as a whole", he urged the graduands 

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria who recalled his experiences as young undergraduate of faculty of law at the university, emphasized the importance of self discipline for every graduate to succeed later  in life 

Vice Chancellor, Prof Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello 

I implore you, after all the celebrations, to reflect and remember only this part; self-discipline. It will show you the way away from drugs, crime, belief in wealth without work and search for miracles of wealth. There are none" 

Many talented people according to him, have failed or have been passed by because their attitude was bad; and people who are less educated, talented or skilled have excelled simply because of the right attitude.
