On Thursday, the College of Medicine (CMUL) University of Lagos (UNILAG) inducted 32 physiotherapy graduates.

The inductees are of the 2021/2022 session, popularly known as the MAZEN’ 21.

It also reports that two out of the inductees graduated with distinction, while 30 graduated with pass grade level, and there was recognition of excellence/presentation of awards.

The college’s provost, David Oke, said this in a welcome address and urged the inductees to continue to build, lead and advance on the solid foundation laid by the founding fathers.

Mr Oke said the founding fathers’ track record of accomplishment of research leadership nationally and globally had left an indelible mark on the institution.

He said that he was confident that their life at the college had laid a great foundation on which to build their career and life.

“We have tried to build true professionals in women and men of character and courage that it will change the face of the healthcare and physiotherapy profession in Nigeria. I, therefore, plead that you should remain to build our dear country Nigeria and endeavour to break the `JAPA’ syndrome that has adversely created brain drain,” he said.

He, however, encouraged the inductees to contribute to research prevailing issues in physiotherapy so that the frontiers of knowledge in their noble profession would continue to expand.

Tomi Ojetunde, the CMUL Physiotherapy Alumni Association chairman, advised the inductees to be humble, focused, adventurous and resilient.

Mr Ojetunde said that they need to be rugged and content. He urged them to develop healthy rivalry, collaborate with other professionals and be conscientious.
