Professor G. O. Egwu now Director, Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH)
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Michael Umale Adikwu, has approved the appointment of Professor G. O. Egwu as Director, Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH). The appointment is for a period of two years in the first instance with effect from 5th September, 2014. A statement by the Vice-Chancellor announced the appointment, which makes Professor Egwu the first substantive Director of the Teaching Hospital. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital was commissioned last year and it came to fruition in the wake of the series of students crisis over the non-accreditation of the Veterinary Medicine and other programmes. The Veterinary Medicine programme along with Medicine and Engineering was eventually accredited by the relevant professional bodies to run their courses.
The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has since graduated its first set of students totaling 28 across the Departments.
