Thirty-eight newly qualified medical laboratory scientists trained by the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology have been inducted into the profession.
At the induction ceremony held at the institution’s College of Health Sciences in Osogbo, Osun State, LAUTECH Vice Chancellor, Prof. Michael Olufisayo Ologunde, assured the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria, Mr. Tosan Erahbor, that the university will continue to deliver its mandate as a leading institution of technology to chart the way forward for the country.
The vice chancellor, however, denied media reports that workers of LAUTECH were on strike, explaining that students in both the Ogbomoso and Osogbo campuses had been writing their examinations.
“Staff of the institution may be demanding payment of their outstanding salaries; they are not unmindful of the need for us to ensure that academic calendar is not disrupted. They want our students to complete studies at the scheduled time,” he said.
