She said additional infrastructure will be added to meet the growth need of the College.

“We are set to be pace setting in academics, practice and institutional growth. The College promises to make it a tradition not just run normal academic calendar but also to commence and complete sessions and release result within 30days of completion of examination.”

The College Provost congratulated the first set of matriculating students and charged them to work hard to justify their admission as not all proposed students were admitted.

According to her, “as first set of the college, and the trailblazers, you must work to leave marks as outstanding set for others to follow.”

While delivering her lecture, titled; Nursing: A profession beyond gains, the guest lecturer Dr Mary Idowu Edward, the Ag.

He advised the Students to be diligent and abide by the rules and regulations of the College and any of the students who go against the College rules shall be seriously dealt with.

Dr Ayorinde added that additional infrastructure such as purposed built hostels, auditorium, lecture theatres and much more will be provided.
