Pharmacists Ifiok Udoubak and Ekikere Etuk, who are beneficiaries of the Udom and Martha Emmanuel Academic Excellence Award(Post Graduate category) stopped by the office yesterday to pay a thank-you visit to me and the Ini Ememobong Foundation(represented by Mrs. Uyai Edidiong Francis)for sponsoring their Post Graduate studies in Pharmacy in the University of Uyo.
Pharm. Akwaowoh Akpabio, a Senior lecturer in the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Uyo and Chairman, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, (PSN), who was a part of the selection committee for the beneficiaries accompanied them on the visit. He said that the award was given to the duo for research in clinical pharmacy and natural medicine. I was glad to meet with them for the first time and I encouraged them to put in their best in the research component of their Post Graduate studies.
The Udom and Martha Emmanuel Academic Excellence Award is an initiative of Ini Ememobong Foundation in honour of Governor Udom Emmanuel and his wife, Dr. Mrs. Martha Emmanuel to support students who distinguish themselves in their fields of academic endeavour.
