As a means of familiarizing themselves with one of their patrons and an icon in the pharmacy profession, the leadership of the Pharmaceutical Association of Nigeria Students (PANS), University of Lagos (UNILAG), chapter, led by the President, Obayomi Emmanuel recently paid a courtesy visit to Pharmanews corporate head office in Mende, Maryland, Lagos.
The PANS executives, during the visit, briefed Pharmanews Publisher, Pharm. (Sir) Ifeanyi Atueyi about the activities of the association for 2017/2018 session and solicited for his support as well as advice for the association.
In his response, Sir Atueyi commended them for the visit and also lauded them for coming up with good initiatives that would add value to the lives of their colleagues within the short period they would be in office. He, however, added that in the course of executing their programmes and projects, they should endeavour to prioritize and ensure that the important ones are executed.
According to the respected pharmacist, time is of great importance to students and importantly, “your primary objective in higher institution should be academic, so it is advisable you stick to the important programmes that will add value to your lives and the lives of your colleagues, and also the ones that will not affect your academics, which is the main reason you are in the university”.
Also speaking, Mr. Moshood Yusuff, editor, Pharmanews commended the youngsters for the visit and as well as assured them that pharmanews would continue to partner with them in the area of publicity for their programmes, just like it has been doing in the past.
“In this age, publicity is very important and the world has become a global village in such a way that information flies around every second, so it is important that people get to know whatever you are doing, and pharmanews will ensure it continues to give you adequate publicity for your programmes”, he stressed.
