He appealed that government equip the Demonstration Hall, Clinic, create school of Community  Health and employ products of the school.

In a related development,  about 700 students have been given full admission after a probational examination was held in the school premises recently.

Speaking  after the results  was pasted,  the Provost , Dr Felix Olawoye said the downward  slide in the quality  of education nationally is worrisome  as so many students with excellent  school  certificate  results cannot  defend  it.

He noted that the school  admits only the best as products  of the school would mann health  facilities  in the remote  areas and to prevent  morbidity and mortality, the school  must not lower it’s standard.

The Provost  said the school  has the capability  of admitting 964 students but because  of poor performance  of students  in the probation  exarmination, the school  could only admit  700.

He appealed to parents to stop encouraging their children to cheat and cut corners as this  has negative effect on the educational standard of the  country.
