-As Atueyi Tasks Lolu Ojo on Service to Humanity
As part of their campaign activities towards the forthcoming presidential election of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), the Lolu Ojo Presidential Campaign Organisation (LOPICO) paid a courtesy visit to the Pharmanews Corporate Head Office, at Mende, Maryland, Lagos.
While receiving them, the Pharmanews Publisher, Sir Ifeanyi Atueyi appreciated the team members for their visit, noting that having the aspiration to become the PSN President is good.
Describing the position of the PSN President as an opportunity to serve humanity, the Pharmanews boss urged the PSN presidential aspirant to do his best and leave the rest to God, who knows the end from the beginning.
“We are created and equipped to serve, because by serving humanity, we are actually serving God. It could be a service without reward, but God knows how to always reward his faithful people”, he stated.
Atueyi, further noted the importance of personal leadership qualities, which makes a whole difference, adding that it would have been a beautiful idea for all the PSN presidential aspirants to emerge as president, but the constitution has made provision for only one person to be the president.
Thus, he urged Dr Lolu Ojo to honestly do his best, without hurting anyone, because it could boomerang.”No one should break his head over the presidential ambition, depend on God’s decision and do your very best”.
The Chairman, LOPICO, Pharm. Ade Popoola, had earlier introduced members of the team, and the motive of their visit, which he said was to inform Sir Atueyi about their preparations for the election.
In his response, the PSN presidential candidate, Pharm. (Dr) Lolu Oj, narrated how he met Sir Atueyi about 35 years ago, when he was a PANS president, and he has had no cause to regret ever knowing him.
He said the time has come to do something new, to change the narration, and to give more value to the pharmacy profession and pharmacists.
His words: Time has come for pharmacists to feel the value of PSN. It is not enough for pharmacists to be paying dues, they need to have value for their dues. It is time to transform the knowledge of pharmacists and compete favourably with international practice.”.
He therefore pleaded for his prayers and support to emerge victoriously at the polls.
Members of the LOPICO team present at the meeting were: Pharm. Ade Popoola, chairman, LOPICO; Pharm.(Prince) Gbenga Falabi; Pharm. Tunde Oyeniran; Pharm. Dave Ehimen Ehikhuemen; Pharm. Chovwe Emaniru and others.
