Last year, we had a nasty experience when we contracted the exercise to an outside company. It was terrible because we wasted a lot of time. The post UTME committee members took it upon themselves to work with the ICT unit of the university to come up with the method of doing the work and the new software"
"I charge you to focus attention on areas of research that will enhance national growth and development so that our country can compete favourably with other nations in all spheres of life. Let me assure you that the PG school is undergoing transitional development, because our intention is to reconstruct it to be the best among its contemporaries" he said
Speaking yesterday with Daily Trust, Dr. Ibrahim of the Biochemistry Department said: "Basic research on type 2 diabetes is usually hard to execute in African countries, because of some procedural issues and lack of appropriate animal models. Interestingly however, my research was focused on the development of more effective and less toxic remedies against the type 2 diabetes. More specifically, the work focused on the validation and development of anti-diabetes plant-based remedies as well as the identification of novel chemical leads from African plants"
