MOUAU Vice Chancellor Professor Francis Otunta while describing the event as a crucial component of the professional development of the graduates, said the university attached great importance to the training of Doctors of Veterinary Medicine.
This, according to him, was why the institution supported all programmes and activities directed towards the enhancement of research, teaching and learning in the college.
Speaking, the Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine, Professor Maxwell Ezeja, said he was delighted that the College had been granted full accreditation status by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the VCN.He, therefore, enjoined the graduates to live up to their professional oath and be good ambassadors of the MOUAU.
