In today's world of stiff competition in the labour market, coupled with advanced technology, industries require of students to have job experience before employing them. The challenge here is that the experience being required is not taught in the lecture rooms. The reality is that, it is only gained though hands on the job, thus real world confrontation popularly called industrial attachment a platform for students arm themselves with all the skill, knowledge and demanded experience.
