Stockbroker advises parents, students on investments

A Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers and Managing Director, Network Capital, Oluropo Dada, has counselled the parents and students of Sofunix International Schools, Ogun State, on the need to cultivate a habit of saving to create wealth through investment in shares and other securities.

Dada said this at the 12th Valedictory Service/Graduation Ceremony and Prize Giving Day of the school located in Iroko Town, Ogun State.

Dada, who was represented by Mr Olasunkanmi Oladele, noted that parents should take advantage of an array of investment opportunities in the Nigerian capital market, while improving their financial literacy to enhance their investment drive.

He said, “Parents need to create wealth through investments to meet their respective obligations.”

The Deputy Editor, The Guardian, Dr Wole Ayobade, who also spoke at the event on the theme, ‘Nurturing Future Leaders’, admonished parents to pay more attention to the learning processes of their children saying they are the future leaders.

Ayobade said it was no longer sufficient to send children to university, but parents must engage them to ensure that they do not associate with bad eggs.

“Every serious student should aim at becoming a global player,” Ayobade charged the students.

In her address, the proprietress, Mrs Olufunke Oni, advised the graduating students to build on the strong academic and moral foundation given to them by the school and always remember that as future leaders, they represent an institution.

“We have trained you to imbibe the culture of hard work and perseverance. Your seniors are making us proud in Nigeria and abroad. I want you to follow this tradition.
