A veterinarian graduate, Adeyemo Abraham Adedayo, has emerged as the best graduating Veterinary medical student of the 2018/2019 set of the University of Ibadan.
This was showcased at the golden induction ceremony of graduating Veterinary Doctors into the Veterinary profession held at the vet faculty’s auditorium on the 10th March 2021.
The faculty inducted 80 vets into the graduate membership of the Veterinary Council of Nigeria.
Thirty of the inductees bagged distinctions in different courses, while Adeyemo Abrahhim topped the chart. He had A’s in eleven out of about fourteen Veterinary courses, making him the first student to achieve such a feat in the history of the veterinary faculty.
The Faculty Dean, Prof. Adedeji, expressed his delight in this year’s golden induction ceremony of graduating Veterinary Doctors, adding that the event would have come up about a year ago if not for the industrial strike and COVID-19.
He added that this year is unique because it is the 50th induction ceremony of the faculty.
He then charged the inductees to be worthy ambassadors of the Faculty and University of Ibadan.
He said, “Among the inductees of today is a young man with 11 distinctions. When I was the Sub-dean in 2007 was a record of 7 distinctions set by one Dr Omotoke Arojo. Today as the Dean, who is blessed to be in charge at the Golden induction, a new record of 11 distinctions had just been set.”
