August 23 marked another milestone for the Benjamin Carson Snr. College of Health and Medical Sciences as principal officers performed the groundbreaking ceremony for its 600-seater auditorium.
President/Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ademola S. Tayo who led the team for the event said the project is driven by the passion to reposition the medical school as a world class institution.
He expressed gratitude to the host community leaders and the Oba in council for supporting the University’s advancement goals.
He is optimistic that the purpose of the new project, the second of its kind by the new administration, would be realized.
He urged the in-house team to execute the project with singular attention to details and commitment to quality.
“You must learn to disagree to agree if this project is to beat the science complex after completion,” he remarked.
Director of Physical Planning, Arch. Mykell Jegede, shares this optimism.
“The project is expected to be by direct labour. We are applying the principle of systems thinking and working together as a team,” he said.
He believes that with the collaboration of all stakeholders, the project will meet the expected standard within the target timeframe.
