In his address, the Registrar, Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria (PCN), Pharm. Ibrahim Babashehu Ahmed, congratulated the inductees on their success, which he said, is a culmination of many years of dedication and hard work, despite the interruption of academics by the COVID pandemic and industrial actions by university workers’ unions.
