The Provost, College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ijero-Ekiti, Dr (Mrs) Olajumoke Adebayo, has urged students of the institution to be serious with their academic programmes as the College would not condone any act of laziness.
Dr Adebayo gave the charge on Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at the matriculation of 1,015 students recently admitted into the College’s Five Schools, namely; School of Environmental Studies, School of Community and Public Health, School of Medical Laboratory & Imaging Sciences, School of Health Information Management and Biostatistics, School of Pharmacy, Dental Health & Ophthalmic Science, therapeutic & Intervention Science as well as the School of Basic Medical Sciences and General Studies.
The Provost, who noted that the College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ijero-Ekiti has produced a long line of distinguished middle-level health professionals, teachers, administrators, political leaders and the clergy, assured matriculants that the Institution has qualified teachers and a conducive learning environment to make their Studentship worthwhile.
Moreover, she emphasised the need for each matriculating student to understand self, and avoid copying others, especially in the aspect of studying, as level of assimilation varies from one person to the other.
While noting that the College has a functional Entrepreneurship Center where Students can acquire additional skills that would make them become job providers and employers of labour, Dr Adebayo urged Parents to support the Institution Management’s “Friends of the College” Initiative, set up as an avenue that would afford Members of Staff, Friends, Parents, Acquaintances and well-meaning individuals the opportunity to donate generously towards supporting tangible projects in the College.
She further hinted of her vision and efforts being put in place by her management with the Support of the Governing Council, towards seeing the College transit to a Polytechnic.
The matriculation which featured performance by the College’s Environmental Parade Guard, had in attendance, Royal Fathers including the Owa Ajero of Ijero-Ekiti – Oba Joseph Adebayo Adewole, the Oluroye of Iroko-Ekiti – Oba Sunday Ekundayo, A representative of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) – Mr Ishola Ganiyu Babaita, Principal Officers of the College, Deans, Directors, Heads of Department, Academic and Non-Academic Staff.
