Babcock University in Ogun State has put together a team of researchers to find treatment for the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.
Vice Chancellor of Prof. Ademola Tayo disclosed this in statement on Tuesday through Joshua Suleiman, the Director of Marketing and Communication of the university.
According to Prof. Tayo, the team has submitted research proposals on COVID-19 to relevant government institutions for sponsorship and is waiting for approval.
Our faculties in the departments of public health and agriculture, who are currently researching on COVID-19 have submitted research proposals on it to the Nigerian Institute of Animal Science for sponsorship.
We also do hope that private universities will be eligible for the Federal Government’s funding for research on COVID-19 vaccine so we can benefit from it.
Prof. Tayo also commended the JAMB management under the leadership of Professor Is-haq Oloye for the uncommon transformations in the Board.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has been an exceptional regulator of admissions. It is also highly gratifying that the leadership of the Board has been demonstrating an unparalleled commitment to excellence.
The Vice-Chancellor stressed that;
For us, at Babcock University, excellence has no other name than excellence, and we are proud that we share that quality with the current JAMB leadership. The relationship and partnership with the Board is mutual, and we hope both parties will sustain it without let or hindrance.
