Moderated by Comr. Adenusi David Olamide, the first session was handled by Comr. Ogunbowale Olatayo Bodunrin, President of Imota Students’ Union, who spoke on Ways to Attaining Academics Excellence.
Outlining educational tips for growth and academic excellence, Comrade Ogunbowale urged students to know their Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities and threat, with a positive mindset to achieve success with God.
He further gave a distinction between the three categories of students i.e A’s, B’s and C’s, asserting that the difference between them all is their way of thinking and thought patterns.
The second session, anchored by Miss Paulina Idris, a student of the University of Unilorin enumerated points but not limited to developing students’ core values, ability to know individuals in their peers for personal development etc.
In conclusion, substantial use of social media was addressed by Amb. Okubote Anuoluwapo, who educated the students on the basic purpose of social media, reasons to use social media and things not to use social media for.
He further made it known that as young minds, seeking chances can have social media helpful or detrimental to opportunities.
