The Fountain University, Osogbo (FUO) on Monday conferred a Honorary Degree of Science on the immediate past Governor of Osun state, Rauf Aregbesola.
The Ex Governor, according to reports, was conferred with the honor at the 8th convocation ceremony of the university.
The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Amidu Sanni, stated that the university would not relent in its mission to provide quality education and train the best for the country’s human capital development.
Aregbesola, while receiving the award lauded the efforts of the institution’s management in its efforts in inculcating decency and good character through the combination of Islamic religion and academics to improve the lives of students of the institution.
He advocated good character and morality in all tertiary institutions in the country, adding that lack of good character, moral and self-discipline contributed to the economic hardship Nigeria is currently facing.
“The constant increase in Poverty Index rate in Nigeria is caused by lack of self-discipline and good character.
“Some people are there at the helms of affairs living in opulence, looting the money that is meant to be spent on improving infrastructures and improving the lives of the people in the society,” Aregbesola said.
