The Vice-Chancellor, University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Prof. Sulyman Abdulkareem, has appealed to the newly-inducted medical graduands of the institution not to relocate abroad for ‘greener pasture’.

Abdulkareem said this while declaring open the 37th induction of 2021 Batch ‘B’ medical graduands UNILORIN College of Health Sciences, on Tuesday, February 22.

He urged the medical graduands to rather leverage the opportunities that abound in the country to provide and improve healthcare for the citizenry.

“It is disheartening to note that we may have just trained you to become assets to other countries. This brain drain leaves the country unable to benefit from the investments it had made in your training.
