RE: AN SOS BY A PHARMACY STUDENT
In reaction to a facebook post by a student who did not disclose his identity but made some allegation against me, Pharm. Charles Onwudiwe.
May I state without equivocation that the Faculty of Pharmacy, Madonna University in which I am a Lecturer, from inception has effective academic board comprising of Pharmacists (in majority) and non Pharmacists, men and women of honor and integrity. The members of the faculty board meet on regular basis to take decisions for running the affairs of the faculty. The false alarm by an unidentified student of the faculty is a great insult to these noble men and women.
The Faculty of Pharmacy, Madonna University drew up her academic programme in line with the NUC and PCN bench mark as it concerns pharmacy education/training, and even went extra miles to ensure that standards are always maintained, hence the prequalifying examinations at no extra financial cost on the students, which has tremendously helped students to study and perform very well in the qualifying examinations.
The allegation of victimization is completely unfounded because Madonna University in general has zero tolerance to students victimization of any sort. The concerned pharmacy student, you know this too well. Did you forget?. As a christian who is happily married with children, I see the students as my own children, and as a Pharmacist, I see them as future men of honour and as my future colleagues of pharmacy profession. How can I victimize them?. Was the unidentified student instigated by unscrupulous individual(s)?, or did he/she make the false allegations out of hatred?. Only God knows.
Finally, I therefore urge the unidentified student to be law abiding and channel his/her complains to appropriate university authorities instead of facebook publication.
Thanks and God bless.
