Achievers University: First Class Students Secure Automatic Employment
Two Students from the Department of Medical Laboratory Science, Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State, have secured automatic employment after emerging overall best in their department.
This was announced by the Pro-chancellor and Founder of the university, Dr Bode Ayorinde, during the 9th induction /oath-taking ceremony of 65 medical laboratory scientists on campus of the institution.
The two graduates, Emmanuel Igwe and Faith Ademulegun were the best students of the MLS department for the academic session.
Ayorinde informed that the duo, who bagged first class honours, would be employed as graduate assistants in the university.
“The university will continue to encourage students who have carved an academic niche for themselves. And we will also continue to provide the necessary infrastructure and equipment for our programmes,” he said.
The pro-chancellor also disclosed that a sum of N100m had been expended recently on nine laboratories for a medical laboratory science programme in the institution.
He thereby encouraged other students to let integrity be their watchword as they enter the labour market.
The Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria, Dr. Tosan Erhabor, said the council would not relent towards ensuring quality service delivery in the health laboratory system in the country.
Erhabor said this would go a long way in discouraging medical tourism to other foreign countries.
“We must find home-grown solutions to our needs if we are to change the narrative of poor health indices. All hands must be on deck and health professions, whatever their specialty, must learn to work together in the interest of the service users, eschewing bickering, rancour or unhealthy rivalry,” Erhabor added.
