A finding by Secrets Reporters is that five years after graduation, the Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy in Delta State University, Abraka, Mr Anthony Onyekweli has refused to conduct induction for graduates from the faculty.
Eight months after, these graduates continue to sit at home without any hope of been inducted into the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN).
This induction which is supposed to be organized by the lazy Dean is far from being held.
Sources within the faculty said, “graduates from the faculty of medicine who graduated last month will be inducted in September next month while those from Pharmacy continue to wait at home over a year or two.”
Further information obtained by Secrets Reporters shows that if a graduate is not inducted, such a person cannot go for internship which one must be licensed in the profession before any further step is taken towards the realization of a fruitful career.
Several letters to the Vice chancellor (VC) of DELSU for these graduates to be inducted has been ignored. Calls by parents to him have fell on deaf ears. The dean who is known to be clever is also very unfriendly with autocratic style of leadership. We gathered that his reason for not conducting induction is due to the letter written to the VC by the students, which angered him. This has made him sworn by his gods to induct them whenever he’s ready.
Call placed to Mr Onyekweli was not successfully answered as he became jittery when our reporter called him and introduced himself as a journalist with Secrets Reporters. As soon as he was told about the story and clarification sought, he began to bark repeatedly “I’m in a meeting”.
He never called back as at the time of going to press.
