Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, has taken the lead in producing medical laboratory scientists in the north-central states.
The university had within two academic sessions produced 67 medical laboratory scientists, in its determination to solve the problem of shortage of qualified medical laboratory scientists in the country.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Muhammed Akanbi, at a pre-convocation press briefing on Monday, said: “The university recently inducted the first and second batches of medical laboratory scientists from KWASU’s B.MLS in 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 academic sessions respectively.
“This is a significant achievement because KWASU is the first tertiary institution in the whole of north central Nigeria to mount the B.MLS programme and graduate 67 medical laboratory scientists, thus contributing to solving the problem of shortage of qualified medical laboratory scientists in the country.”
Amongst other achievements, Akanbi said KWASU, despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic, remains a pacesetter in steady academic calendar.
Despite financial constraints, the VC  disclosed that most of the academic programmes of the institution have full accreditation status, adding that 16 new programmes are awaiting resource visitation by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
Akanbi attributed the feat recorded so far to the commitment and sacrifice of the staff; and the support of the state government during accreditation period.
In the area of discipline, the VC announced that 87 students of the institution were expelled for their involvement in examination malpractices, drug-related offences, internet fraud, robbery among other anti-social behaviours.
He said a total of 6,620 students produced in 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 academic sessions will be graduating on Friday and Saturday. Of the number, the VC said 98 made First Class.
