Babcock University has tasked researchers on producing a vaccine for COVID-19 pandemic, just as it put together a team of researchers to find a cure to the raging coronavirus pandemic.
President/Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ademola S. Tayo stated this while speaking with Jamb Bulletin.
He said some of our faculties in the departments of Public Health and Agriculture who are currently researching on COVID-19 have submitted research proposals on COVID-19 to the Nigerian Institute of Animal Science for sponsorship. We are waiting for their response.
“We also do hope that private universities will be eligible for the Federal Government’s funding for research on COVID-19 vaccine so we could benefit from it.”
Meanwhile, the Vice-Chancellor has commended the JAMB Management under the leadership of Professor Is-haq Oloyede for his uncommon transformations in the Board.
He said: “The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has been an exceptional regulator of admissions.
”It is also highly gratifying that the leadership of the Board has been demonstrating an unparalleled commitment to excellence.
”For us, at Babcock University, Excellence has no other name than Excellence, and we are proud that we share that quality with the current JAMB leadership.
”The relationship and partnership with the Board are mutual, and we hope both parties will sustain it without let or hindrance.”
‘On the operations of the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS), Professor Tayo said the system had tremendously helped to fine-tune the admissions process in the University just as he gave kudos to the Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS) Which has provided immense help to the candidates.
He said the Adventist philosophy of education is conceptualised as the harmonious development of the physical, the mental and the spiritual powers of man, irrespective of your religion, colour or creed.
Our type of education prepares the student for the joy of service now and in the world to come. It makes students assume responsibility for the positive changes in their environment.
