The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Lawal Suleiman Bilbis and other top management staff of the institution at a recent meeting urged officials of the HMO to discharge their duties effectively.
“We urge you to deliver your services with dedication, credibility and resilience,” said.
The Managing Director of the organisation, Mr. Lekan Ewenla, assured the VC and university community of effective service delivery.
“I promise the university management the best based on the trust reposed in us by the management.This task shall not be taken lightly,” he said.
He also highlighted areas of priority they will venture into during the discharge of their duties.
“We will generate new database for all staff members and students in the institution, and we shall take into consideration, sensitisation and other healthcare benefits packages,” he added.
