Prof. N.M. Danjuma
he present Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences started as a Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology under Faculty of Science in 1968. Today, we have five departments that make up the Faculty of Pharmceutical Sciences. We offer a professional Pharmacy undergraduate programme that leads to the degree of B.Pharm which is a pre-requisite for registration with the Pharmacy Council of Nigeria. Our vision is to be a leader in shaping healthcare through innovative pharmaceutical education, research and practice. Even though the Faculty is geographically located in Africa, nevertheless it has the aspiration to be globally connected to all stakeholders in pharmaceutical education, industry, research and services. With the network of global alliance, ABU Pharmacy hopes to be instrumental in creating new grounds in education, research and practice. The healthcare and pharmaceutical industries are making rapid advances over the years; the Department will need to keep abreast with the environmental changes so as to be relevant as well as to lead in the advancement of the Pharmacy profession and the industry.
