The Oyo State Governor-elect, Engineer Seyi Makinde has advised the new set of graduates from the University of Lagos, UNILAG, to be self-reliant rather than seeking white collar jobs in order to fully utilize their potential and be successful in life.

The governor-elect, who implored the fresh graduates to always think out of the box, said no matter the jumbo salary the employer pays at the end of the months, their services would be less once they clock fifty years.
