By Ritah Ainembabazi
The minister of science, technology, and innovation Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye has cautioned fresh graduates against reckless lifestyles as they join the field of work.
Dr. Elioda says many youth after finishing school tend to get excited because of too much freedom and end up engaging in activities that put their lives at risk.
While officiating at the 22nd graduation ceremony of YMCA Comprehensive Institute in Buwambo Wakiso district today, the minister cautioned the graduands against alcoholism, drug abuse and sexual behaviors which may claim their lives at a young age.
Dr. Erioda also highlighted the need for the graduands to be innovative to enable them to thrive in this competitive world.
“stay competitive as you know there are very many people who are graduating. You should find ways of creating your own jobs, taking advantage of the ones available and also continue to study and get more skills” the minister said.
A total of 1,984 students have today been awarded degrees, diplomas and certificates in various academic disciplines on the 1st day of the graduation ceremony which ends tomorrow.
James Nkata the YMCA Chancellor urged them to use the skills and values obtained from the institution to make positive differences in the society.
