  1. I am an alumnus of uniben.I was admitted to read medicine and surgery in 1979 and graduated 1985.I am a chief consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist.The university governing council should lay more emphasis on student welfare especially decent student accommodation and enough lecture hall with audoi-visual projector.Class captain is given soft copy of all lectures ;all student should have lap top for internet assignment .Official cars was consolidated with university salary scale during obasanjo led government.It is no more project vehicle recently but official toyota corolla all over the place.What kind of pschological orientation and well being will be produce from hall 1,2and3. according to Fela suffering and smiling.Nothing like DR[MRS] OR PROF[MRS]. DR JULIE GABRIEL OR PROF MARY JOSEPH IS CORRECT.YOU ARE ACADEMIC NOT ACADEMICIAN.THANKS TO MY GS .A BRITON THOUGHT ME USE OF ENGLISH [MR PARKINSON] IN1979/80 ADMISSION.I MUST COMMEND THE EFFORTS OF THE PRESENT VC BUT I WANT A SEMPER OPTIMUM[EVER BEST] UNIBEN
