I believe that regional conferences on how best to ensure that university education responds to the needs of the labour market should be attended by not only decision and policy makers, but also young graduates like me.

Otherwise, we risk always only listening to what we recently witnessed when the person in charge of higher institutions of learning said that, “A degree or a master can’t do anything”.

What has he invented anyway? That’s the question.
