Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos, says the state university will get a faculty of pharmacy if elected as governor.
The governorship candidate said this on Thursday during an interactive session with members of the state chapter of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN).
Sanwo-Olu said he does not joke with the health sector and would make sure the faculty is provided within four years of his reign as governor.
He said the Lagos State University (LASU) after more than three decades of existence should be a centre of academic excellence for the production of manpower in the field of pharmacy.
“To strengthen the profession and boost manpower in the field of Pharmacy, I am convinced that our state university should have a faculty of Pharmacy,” he said.
“If elected, we will make sure LASU within our 4 years have faculty of pharmacy. It is not just right that we have medical college without faculty of pharmacy. I am promising you that our government will ensure that everything is done to make faculty of pharmacy a reality for the state owned university.
“As professional body of pharmacists, I will implore you to give us a position paper on what we need to do that will enable us achieve our objective and I can assure that as government, we will do all within our powers to make it a reality.
“Your profession is one of the most important fields for human existence. No one can joke with the health sector. So when I received your invitation, I pledged to attend this event regardless of my schedule because it is about health and we must listen to you.”
