Babcock Inaugurates Team to Begin Search for Covid-19 Cure
Babcock University has inaugurated a team of researchers to find a cure to the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic.
This was disclosed on Wednesday June 3, 2020, by the President/Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Ademola Tayo.
In an interview featured in JAMB Bulletin, Prof. Tayo noted that the institution’s public health and agriculture faculties had begun search for funding, for the research.
“Some of our faculties in the departments of Public Health and Agriculture who are currently researching on COVID-19 have submitted research proposals on COVID-19 to the Nigerian Institute of Animal Science for sponsorship. We are waiting for their response.
“We also do hope that private universities will be eligible for the Federal Government’s funding for research on COVID-19 vaccine. So, we could benefit from it,” he said.
He also commended the efforts of the Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, towards the transformation of the board.
Prof. Tayo said the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) he introduced had tremendously helped to fine-tune the admissions process in the university.
He, therefore, praised the Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System, which he said provided immense help to candidates.
“The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has been an exceptional regulator of admissions. It is also highly gratifying that the leadership of the Board has been demonstrating unparalleled commitment to excellence.
“For us, in Babcock University, excellence has no other name than excellence, and we are proud that we share that quality with the JAMB leadership.
“The relationship and partnership with the Board is mutual, and we hope both parties will sustain it without any hindrance,” he said.
