Spread the love


By Kemi Akintokun

Prof. Babatunde Salako, the Director-General, Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), on Wednesday described the visit of the U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, to the institute, as a push to do more in research.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the American Secretary of State is on a working visit to some African nations.

Salako told NAN on telephone that the NIMR research efforts over the years had been recognised with the visit.

He said: “It gladdens my heart that our efforts over the past years’ research and national development have finally been recognised by a world power.

“What more reference of excellent performance do we need?.

“It’s an encouragement to continue to push forward on research and national development.”

He also thanked the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), the Federal Government and the U.S. Government for funding research work in the institute over the years.

“We thank our past and present principals at the FMOH, the Federal Government  and the government of the United States that have provided funding for our activities over the past years,” he said.(NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
