The 1st of November 2022 brought a lot of joy to Miss Dorcas Fiyinfoluwa Fanibe, a 100 level MBBS student and her family as she became the first recipient of the Cecilia Oshikanlu Scholarship Award instituted under the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan (CoMUI), Sponsor A Student Programme (SASP).

The Provost, CoMUI, Professor Olayinka Omigbodun along with the Deputy Provost, Professor A. F. Adeniyi, the Acting Secretary to the College, Barrister A. A. Agbaje, the Chief Internal Auditor, Mr. O. J. Folorunsho, and the Head, Information Technology Unit (ITU), Mr Adesanmi Adetule were present at the event. The Donor, an alumnus of CoMUI, of the MBBS Class of 1985, Dr. Olabisi Oshikanlu, was at the event with Professor Akinyinka Omigbodun (one time Provost of CoMUI) and Dr. Aderonke Akingbola also a member of the MBBS Class of 1985. Some other well-wishers and friends of CoMUI joined the programme virtually including the mother of the donor Mrs Cecilia Oshikanlu, a retired Matron of the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.

Thank you to Dr. Bisi Oshikanlu and her family for their extreme generosity. Thank you to all the individuals and groups who have established scholarships under this program SASP (Sponsor A Student Program) .

This will hopefully encourage other Alumni and Philanthropists to give generously to this Program as well as the Students Hostel Project. As the year comes to an end -and we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas- please remember that your donations will be TAX DEDUCTIBLE in the US .

Thank you so much.
