Celebrations as UNIMED final year students ‘sign out’

From Sade Adewale
Palpable joy was felt at the University of Medical Sciences, UNIMED, Ondo as pioneer students of the University ended their academic programme barely four years since the establishment of the university.

The 400 level students from Anatomy, Biochemistry and Physiology departments decked in white T-Shirts came out of the examination hall in a festive mood as they sign on each other’s shirt, using permanent marker.

“The journey has not been easy but it is rather short. We started in January, 2016 and here we are in 2019 the last paper is done.  I’m so excited,”said Dolapo Ajidagba, from Anatomy Department.

According to Bolanle Ajao, from Physiology department: “It has been an exciting journey, we came in as the first set, and it was like a test run but the school treated us well, I’m so grateful I’m able to reach this level. At that time there was no accreditation.

We were scared because if we don’t get accreditation we might be sent back home or start elsewhere again but we got the accreditation when we were in 200 to 300 level.

“The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Friday Okonofua has lived up to his words, he is always looking out for the students.

Kayode Bright from Biochemistry department said: “It has been a very memorable  experience, despite the challenges, we are here today. When we were given admission, we just hope the university be given accreditation. I give kudos to the management of the school, they have done well getting the accreditation within four years”.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Friday Okonofua, on behalf of the Governing Council, Senate and Staff of UNIMED congratulated the students and wished them success in their endeavors.

He said, “I am extremely proud of this first set of students at UNIMED – diligent, resourceful, hardworking and highly knowledgeable. I congratulate them and wish them all the very best as they enter the job market
