A general, breast and endocrine surgeon in the Department of Surgery, College of Health Science, University of Abuja, Professor K.D.T. Yawe, has commended the efforts of the Vice-Chancellor of Federal University of Lafia (FULafia) Prof. Muhammad Sanusi Liman, for the introduction of a medical college in the university.

Yawe made his commendation during an interview with the FULafia Bulletin when he visited the vice-chancellor in Lafia, Nasarawa State, recently.

Prof. Yawe, a consultant surgeon and clinical oncologist, was the immediate past president of West African College of Surgeons.

He praised Liman for establishing a medical college in FULafia, saying: "This laudable action of the vice-chancellor will surely improve the standard of healthcare of the state and North-central zone."

Prof. Yawe said it was in recognition of the feat achieved by Liman in establishing the medical college that he "deemed it very important to pay a visit to College of Medicine, Federal University of Lafia, to inspect the facilities at the college and to offer advice where necessary."

Yawe said based on his assessment of the infrastructure and facilities at the college, "it is obvious the vice-chancellor and his management team members have been very visionary because the basic infrastructure required to start a medical college, like the preclinical side, have already been put in place and I have seen that a lot has already been done in terms of facilities and quite a number of staff have been employed.”

He said that he was delighted to see that some medical courses like the B.Sc. in human anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry which form foundation stones for medical college and training of medical students have been started in FULafia.

He praised the management team for putting such massive infrastructures within a short period of time, noting that most of the laboratories for preclinical were ready.

"In every medical school, to have an animal clinic and animal laboratory, like you already have here neared completion, is necessary," Prof. Yawe said.

Speaking, Liman thanked Yawe for visiting FULafia, saying that the university "is in a hurry to develop and contribute its quota to the development of the society.
