The Dilemma of a University Surgeon in Today's Nigeria

Bankole, A.Michael (1982-02-16)


Mr. Vice-Chancellor, Dean, Faculty of Health Sciences, Officers of the University, Deans of Faculties, Learned Colleagues and fellow students all, 1understand that traditionally, an inaugural lecture is one of the first responsibilities of newly appointed University Professor. In it he exercises a privilege to formally address the University community on some scholarly topic that has occupied his mind and time, giving vent in the process to some of his conclusions to date, as well as some of his hopes and expectations for the future. It is traditionally understood that his appointment as a professor would afford him the opportunity and wherewithal to pursue the concepts enunciated and eventually realize his hopes.
