Speaking at this year’s graduation at the Rift-Valley Institute of Science and Technology (RVIST), Moi called on the institutions to pay particular attention to technology and energy-related courses.
“The institute should think of how to set up a school of energy and petroleum studies to tap into the expected oil boom from this province,” Moi said.
He called on the graduands to embrace peace and be true nationalists while contributing to national development.
He reiterated the role of young people in fighting ethnicity, adding that legislation alone cannot end the vice.
“People should learn to live together and embrace one another and then cohesion will be achieved,” Moi added.
The former president called on students to utilise the resources at the institution to acquire the skills they need to launch their careers.
RVIST principal Eddie Koimett said since its inception in 1979, the institution has contributed to advancement of education and training in the country.
He said the institute is currently expanding its facilities to boost the quality of its programmes.
