Olutayo Arikawe had a great 2016 grabbing an award as Britain’s Pharmacist of the Year. A community pharmacist and pharmacist manager at Priory Community Pharmacy in Dudley, Arikawe had earlier won the Chemist and Druggist (C+D) Community Pharmacist of the Year and Pharmacy Manager of the year awards.

As a visiting lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton, she gives career advice and offers work placements for students. Arikawe spoke to TheCable about her professional journey since relocating to the United Kingdom in 2005.

Import of the ‘I Love My Pharmacist Award’

‘The I Love My Pharmacist’ award was created by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the professional body for pharmacists in Great Britain, to showcase and celebrate the great work that pharmacists do for their patients across the country. It actually celebrates Britain’s best pharmacists.

Pronouncement of the winner of the award

I was shortlisted by an expert panel to become one of 23 regional finalists back in June 2016. The members of the public then voted for their favourite pharmacist. I won the regional award for midlands and east. In September, the other five regional winners and I had to present to another expert panel that adjudged me the national winner.

Other awards in 2016

Yes, I was privileged to have won two awards at the Chemist and Druggist (C+D) awards: the Community Pharmacist of the Year and Pharmacy Manager of the Year. I also won the public health pharmacist of the year at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Awards. I have also won many local and other national awards.

Must you always associate tribe to success? A Nigerian is a Nigerian, your wahala sef is too much. Why don't you ask what a Calabar man or Edo man has brought to plate.

I'm 100% Yoruba, but I'm being careful cos the comments on Nairaland can easily turn one into a tribalist. This is being fueled by Biafra agitators cos they believe they have no stake in the country and they believe the Yorubas voted for Buhari whom they so much hate. The Yorubas too fight back by calling the igbos flat-heads whenever the igbos call them afonja. . . I'm tired of all these.

I only came to check the name.

But wait, what are the Hausas doing to make Nigeria proud and great? @blackberlin
The only thing they're known for is the wanton killings and overpopulating the country by giving birth to children they don't train.

NB. Challenge me only with facts

you claim not to indulge in tribalism but u are here pointing fingers at a particular faction when it is crystal clear both parties are guilty of the above stated. Self deceit at its peak

Though you're right. But tribal and bigotry comments also existed even before 2015 election. I have been a member of Nairaland for sometime.

And the cause is not only from Biafra agitators, both tribes (Igbo and Yoruba) mocks each other on daily basis in different issues and topics, even football now shocked

The mistake you will make is to say Igbos (Biafrans agitators) are the cause, while exonerating Yoruba people. It's a 2 way things.
Action and reaction are equal and opposite- Newton's 3rd law of motion.

BTW
Na only this 2 tribes dey Nairaland undecided we can't hear word again. It's becoming extremely annoying.
Almost every thread generates Tribalism and bigotry.
Some have even created accounts specifically for this purpose.

Seun seriously needs to work on this, I'm more tired and feed up than you angry

Ohhh, I just read your other comment above, u said most Niger Deltas are kidnappers and militants, I even thought you're Sane undecided, you're even part of the problem I'm talking about.
That comment is a direct bigoted and silly statement, if a Niger Deltan responds now, you will call him IPOB or will say Igbos cause the tribalistic sentiments here.

Go and sleep
