Establish Environmental Health Dept. in Buk

By Sani Garba Mohd, 01.03.2009


I would like to use your medium to commend Bayero University Kano for taking the bull by the horn. It is the first university to run a degree programme in Environmental health (after the cancellation of the course in the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife in the late 80s).
The Vice Chancellor made this known when he received a delegation of Environmental Health officers Registration Council of Nigeria on 7th October 2008. Represented by Deputy Vice Chancellor (academics), Prof. Kabir Ahmed, he pledged the university’s total support towards the establishment of an Environmental Health department.
This is good news to Environmental health practitioners who want to further their education up to the degree level and above. They had looked forward to the realization of this for quite a long time now. The leader of the council, Prof. J. A Ajala, said Buk was chosen to be catchment area for North west but noted that the way the university excelled in running its programme, it would be oopen to all, based on merit .
We hope Buk would continue to achieved more, get more, do more and give more Kudos VC jega and your team
