Nigeria Economics Students Association (NESA), Crescent University, Abeokuta Chapter has been advised by the Vice chancellor of the institution, Prof. Kehinde Okeleye to take their entrepreneurial skills seriously.

The advice was given during a courtesy visit of the association to the office of the vice chancellor to flag off 2013 NESA Week.

Prof. Okeleye said “if you are an economist and you have other skills, you are in business.

“It is you who will sell yourselves and your university as you are enhancing yourselves in the job market”, Prof. Okeleye noted.

In another development, in his lecture entitled “Agriculture and Sustainable Development: Aspirations and the Roles of Stakeholders”, delivered at the annual symposium of Plant Physiology and Crop Production Students' week of Federal University of Agriculture, Professor Okeleye described sustainable agriculture systems as those that are economically viable and meet society's need for safe and nutritious food while maintaining or enhancing natural resources and quality of the environment for the future generations.

He encouraged fresh graduates to start on a smaller scale to be able to sustain their progress, wondering what people would live on if Nigerian oil should fail in another 50 years.
