“This reality of globalization comes with it, the ever-growing awareness that inter-dependence among nations and people of the world is indisputable. The world has been demystified, becoming smaller and smaller and opening up into one market; symbolized by competition’’, he explained.

Former President, noted, “This imposed a responsibility on the youth to adequately prepare themselves for global leadership to enable them to sustain and save the planet for all mankind.”

He added: the world today is a fast-changing one which presents numerous challenges as well as opportunities.

He advised the graduates to be concerned about issues after the world such as hunger, poverty, diseases, deadly migratory voyages, social and economic deprivation and inequalities especially in the least developing countries.
