The Vice Chancellor of Imo State University (IMSU), Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie, has debunked speculations that the university’s faculty of law lost its accreditation describing the rumour as unfounded and false.
Prof. Awuzie was speaking to newsmen at the induction of the 6th set of medical doctors who graduated from the University College of Medicine at Umuna, Orlu local government area.
He said that the law students of the institution were writing their final examination and would soon graduate.
Earlier, at the induction ceremony held at Imo State University Teaching Hospital (IMSUTH) auditorium, the Governor Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha, advised the 35 new medical doctors to uphold the dignity of the medical profession and to see it as service to God and humanity.
Also speaking the provost of the College of Medicine, Prof. E.C. Ohanaka, said that Governor Okorocha had restored industrial harmony in the institution and appealed for accommodation for resident doctors in IMSUTH.
According to him, “medicine, as a profession, is a journey and not a destination” adding that the profession is filled with multiple challenges.
The overall best student in the set, Miss Olaedo Marcelina Izuagba, who spoke on behalf of the students, expressed gratitude to God and thanked the lecturers and government that made their programme fruitful.
