When you become graduates, endeavour to represent this school and department as responsible individuals. I am proud of you, you are the best set I have taught; to say the least,” he said. While speaking with Campusbeats, Macduff, praised Professor Ofoeze, saying that he is a good man, a brain box and above all, “he treats us as if he is our father.” Okebe Philips, a finalist of the department, described Professor Ofoeze as a dogged lecturer. favour nnadi (200- Level, Department of medical laboratory science , ABSU)
