So much appreciation to God for granting the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria a successful 93rd Annual National Conference in the heart of Oshogbo. Doubts were raised on the reasonableness of having the conference at this time of wartime uncertainties but we have triumphed seamlessly.
My appreciation also goes out to the government of Osun State under the leadership of His Excellency, Gov. Gboyega Adetola for their unflinching support from the very beginning when the process of hosting the conference started.
I want to thank the Conference Planning Committee led by an outstanding Chairman, Pharm Abbas Sambo, the Local Organizing Committee led by Prof. Moses Akanmu, and PSN Osun Branch chaired by Pharm Kayode Adetona. Together they brought light out of seeming darkness. This year’s conference was perhaps the hardest to put together yet they gave us a conference that we will not forget in a hurry.
To the exhibitors (on-site and virtual), thank you so much for your partnership over the years. We at the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria are really grateful. We trust the time in Oshogbo was worth it.
Of course to the Pharmacists who participated in this year’s conference (physical and virtually) you all really made this happen, hence you are the real MVPs. Your trust in the organizers of the conference is the encouragement that is needed to ride any storm. Thank you for showing up and indeed showing out.
Let me seize this opportunity to congratulate the newly elected members of the National Executive Committee of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Pharm Gbenga Falabi as National Secretary, Pharm Gafar Madehin as National Treasurer, Pharm Margaret Ilomuanya as Editor-in-Chief and Pharm Martin Oyewole as Internal Auditor. You all have reflected the minds of Pharmacists hence charged with the responsibility of joining hands to take the profession to greater heights. I congratulate you all once more.
OMOLUABI 2020 is done and dusted but will forever be in our memories as a successful conference. Our next stop is Rivers State, Garden City 2021. This is a homecoming for me hence it will be a grand event.
Thank you all and God bless.
Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa
President, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria.
