The Veterinary Council of Nigeria (VCN) has on Thursday issued probation licences to thirty-three fresh graduates of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike in Abia State.
According to a statement by Dr. Josiah Kantiyok, Acting Registrar of the Council, warned to fresh graduates of the dangers of engaging in unethical activities.
He made them know that the council has the right to withdraw their licence should there be any negative report about them.
Prof. Bello Agaie, President of Nigeria Veterinary Medical Association (NVMA) and a Professor of Toxicology at Uthman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, charged them to abide by the ethics of the profession in the discharge of their duties.
“Ensure that you register your premises in accordance with the law wherever you practice as well as obey laid down regulations. I want to assure you that the association will stand behind you whenever the need arises,” Agaie stated.
The Vice Chancellor of Michael Okpara University, Prof Francis Otunta, congratulated the fresh graduates and also charged them to move the field with confidence and put their knowledge to optimal use.
The VC, who was represented by the Deputy VC (Academic), Prof. Madu Iwe, told the graduates to utilise the knowledge and skills they acquired to provide solutions to problems facing animal health and livestock in the country.
