The Vice-Chancellor of LASU, Prof. ‘Lanre Fagbohun, while addressing the inductees and guests, advised them on the need to be committed to their duties, saying:

“The Hippocratic Oath is your public commitment to assumption of professional responsibilities.” He also admonished the doctors to keep away from taking gratification and involving in all forms of vices that might bring discredit and disrepute to the medical profession, even as the vice-chancellor pleaded with them to continue to be good ambassadors of the university and project its reputation in good light. On his part, the Acting Provost of the college, Prof. Antonia Ogbera called on the in-ductees to uphold the tenets of medical profession, stressing that the new doctors should strive for excellence and professionalism in discharging their duties. She, however, thanked the Lagos State Government and the university management for the support given to the college through provision of facilities and equipment, as well as enhanced welfare of the staff to ensure the development of the institution. In his remarks, the Registrar, Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), Dr. TBA Sanusi, who administered the Hippocratic Oath on the inductees, described the induction ceremony as a call to service, even as he advised the doctors to live above board.

“I want to assure you that the MDCN is not out to witch-hunt, but rather to set standards. Our red book outlined the minimum guidelines for Medical and Dental Education in Nigeria,” he said. This was as a senior Medical Fellow, Prof. O. O. Odusanya called on the doctors to continue to update themselves, saying: “You have just learnt the alphabet of medical profession; you are about to begin to form your own words, concluding your sentences and forming your own speech.” In another development, the Senate of the Lagos State University has re-elected Prof. Olumuyiwa Noah as Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of Academics for the institution, following the expiration of his tenure on August 24.

The spokesman for the university, Mr. Adekoya Martins hinted that in the election, Prof. Noah polled 104 votes to beat Prof. Danoye Oguntola-Laguda, who had seven votes. Martins said that a total of 113 votes were cast by the members of the Senate in which two were void. “The election was peaceful and successful,’ he said, adding that Prof. Noah from the Department of Educational Foundation and Counseling Psychology will serve as Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics) for another two years.
