“Training and retraining of the staff must be paramount as they should take advantage of the opportunity provided by the Corps,” he said
Speaking, the Chairperson of the ALPSPN, Osun State Chapter, Chief (Mrs) Odebode Lawal Mobola said that their visitation has served as sensitization and familiarization of the association executives with the Commandant to harmonize and collaborate in the fight against quacks in the State.
