• The Medical Rehabilitation Therapists Registration Board of Nigeria (MRTB) says it is overwhelmed by the tremendous support and attention Bayero University Kano accorded the Medical Health Science.

    The Board was in Bayero University to carry out its routine accreditation exercise on Physiotherapy programmes last week.

    The leader of the accreditation team, (Col.) Dr. Paschal Mogbo said in spite of the fact that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, is not a Professor of Medicine, yet the attention and unwavering support he accorded medical health science was so overwhelming and highly encouraging and deserved commendation.

    He said the Board had visited several universities in the country for its routine accreditation exercise, but ‘we have not seen any university that can compare favourably with BUK in terms of infrastructural development and academic transformation.

    Dr. Paschal added that Physiotherapy was definitely not a young programme in BUK if the kind of infrastructure, facilities and equipment ‘we saw on ground is to be taken into account,’.

    He said the accreditation exercise embarked upon by the Board was not done with the aim of witch-hunting any institution, but was a kind of peer review exercise aimed at maintaining and sustaining standards in line with global best practices, urging all and sundry to take it as such.

    Responding, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. A. Rasheed told the team that  BUK is running a new and young Physiotherapy programme.

    The VC said BUK cherishes routine accreditation exercises, because according to him, it always gingered them in “righting the wrongs” observed, adding that‘without such serious peer review, there will not be standards, and once there is no standard our graduands will not only be left behind, but will also not be able to rub shoulders with their contemporaries anywhere in the world,’ he explained.
