The Acting Provost of Adeyemi College of Education (ACE), Dr. Ajigbade Ikuejube, has said that Nigerian can curb the increasing unemployment rate with Fine and Applied Arts skills.

 Ikuejube stated this at the annual Fine and Applied Arts exhibition held in the institution, with various Artworks, including painting, graphics, ceramics, sculpture and textile production, on display.

 Represented by the Bursar, Mr. Ganiyu Abdul, the Provost emphasised the importance of self-reliance in contemporary society “where job opportunities are becoming too hard to find.”

He stressed the need for FAA lecturers to produce competent graduates to contribute to national development.

He advised the students not to relent in exhibiting their talents and showing good character as ambassadors of the institution.

 Describing the occasion as a special one, Ikuejube described the DFAA as one of the most critical departments in the Institution “for the role it is playing in the production of potential job creators after their graduation.”

 The FAA Head of Department, Mr. Thompson Akinnodi, explained that the event was put together to showcase the students’ performances in their different areas of specialisation.

 He advised the graduating students to continue to live up to expectations by effectively using skills acquired during their training in the institution.
