The Secretary to the Government of Kogi State (SSG), Folashade Ayoade, has assumed duty as a part-time lecturer at the Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH), Osara.
Ms Ayoade took up the job at the university with a promise of impacting knowledge on youths and also serving as inspiration to them.
Ms Ayoade expressed determination to spare time out of her tight schedule to contribute to the development of the education sector in Kogi.
She assumed duty on Thursday and began her lecture in Biochemistry by 10:00 a.m. at Lecture Room 4.
Ms Ayoade encouraged the female students on the need to be serious with their academic work. She used herself as an example to imitate.
