48 newly qualified medical doctors have reportedly been professionally initiated at the University of Ilorin.

The Registrar of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), Dr Abdulmumin Ibrahim, who was represented by the director, Kwara State Hospital Services, Dr Zinat Saadu urged the new medics to maintain principles of firmness, fairness, justice and mercy in the discharge of their responsibilities.

Saadu said this at the 32nd professional initiation of the Batch ‘B’ of the 2016 medical graduates.

"Your profession is service to humanity… above all, in whatever you do, whatever you say, say so with honour and dignity. In life, it is not how much money you make that matters; it is not how much connection you have that matters, it is not even how many degrees you earn that matters, but what matters ultimately, is what happiness you have given to the next person,” Saadu said.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali (OON), represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Prof. (Mrs.) N.Y.S. Ijaiya, observed that medicine was not an easy discipline.

She added that Nigerians are in need of doctors and that "as tough as the course is, we still need more doctors to man our hospitals, This is the reason why we are happy today that we are contributing more doctors to the medical facilities of Nigeria and to humanity.”

The Provost, College of Health Sciences, Prof. AbdulWahab Johnson, also shared his commendation for the new medics.
