Like a child nurtured from the cradle amid resource scarcity by his adorable parents who set their eyes on a promising future, the Edo State University, Uzairue, Etsako West local government area, has come of age.

The University, owned by Edo State, seems ready to take its rightful place in the global community with the induction of 37 Medical doctors.

The Hippocratic oath-taking ceremony for the inducted doctors was witnessed by the state’s deputy governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu.

A total of thirty-seven medical doctors, the first set of medical graduates produced by the institution, took part in the oath-taking exercise.

Ironically, an ecstatic Comrade Shaibu who is a native of Uzairue where the University is located, and also a member of the Edo state House of Assembly at the time the idea to establish the University was mooted, took to his Facebook page to celebrate the milestone .

Comrade Shaibu, as one of the principal officers of the Edo State House of Assembly at the time, played a leading role in. ensuring the bill for the establishment of the University sailed through.

Writing on his Facebook page, Comrade Shaibu said

“Today, I am excited, being a part of the first induction ceremony of medical doctors of Edo State University Uzairue.

I am highly elated because I remember with nostalgia, how I moved a motion for the establishment of three Universities for Edo State when I was a member of the Edo State House of Assembly.

Today, I am a proud son of Edo State, seeing that one of the Institutions, Edo State University Uzairue is graduating her first set of 37 medical doctors.

I would like to encourage the newly inducted medical doctors to be good ambassadors of Edo State and Nigeria in all they do, put humanity first and remember that the country has invested so much in them by giving them subsidised education.

I want to appeal to them, not to be in a hurry to leave the country because doing so, will only benefit countries that did not invest in their education.

I congratulate the medical doctors and their parents and most especially the warrior Vice-Chancellor who has never relented in his quest to get this University to where it is today.

I want to assure the Registrar of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria that all issues raised in his address are already been addressed and when next he visits, he will see the difference. “
