The Prime Minister Anastase Murekezi has urged Unversity Graduates of Rwanda to use the skills and knowledge acquired during their period of study and take advantage of the country’s growing the economy to create their own jobs and become employers to their colleagues instead of becoming job seekers.
The Premier was speaking at the graduation ceremony of the University of Rwanda during which 8,252 students graduated in a ceremony held at Amahoro stadium on Friday, August 25th.
Murekezi said, "Knowledge that has value and productivity is required on the job market, that helps seekers to become job creators." He urged the graduates to utilize the knowledge attained in contributing to the development of the Rwandan economy through job creation.
"You should use the knowledge acquired, to change the lives of citizens through what you have studied or what you plan to do. If you’re to achieve an objective in your life, you have to focus far by becoming job creators instead of searching for jobs."
The Premier urged the graduates to seek the services of the Business Development Fund Ltd (BDF) and other government institutions to get access to finance.
He further promised that government of Rwanda will continue to partner with other institituions to develop education.
