-As Kaduna PSN-YPG Members Pay Courtesy Visit to him
For Pharmacy students to have favourable adaptation in the fast changing world of technology advancement, the Emir of Zauzzau, Amb. Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli has tasked pharmacists in academia on quality training for the youngsters.
The Emir, who ascended the Zazzau Emirate on 7 October, 2020; as her first Emir from the Mallawa ruling house in 100 years, said improved training of students is imperative, as the practice of Pharmacy has transcended the borders of drugs dispensing.
Speaking during a courtesy visit of some members of the Kaduna State PSN-YPG to his palace, the monarch expressed his deep admiration for Pharmacy, which made him convinced his daughter to study Pharmacy.
“My admiration for Pharmacy was born out of my experience of holistic pharmaceutical care, medication reconciliation and tele-pharmacy, which led me to convince my beloved daughter to study Pharmacy when she was confused about choosing an undergraduate course of study.
Pharmacy is a profession that deals on drugs and medicines. It entails drug discovery, development, design, and formulation, including dispensing to both humans and animals for improving health.
To be a certified pharmacist, it is mandatory to pass through the four walls of an approved pharmacy institution. There are over twenty universities offering Pharmacy as a degree courses in Nigeria.
