The editorial board and members of Vet News Organization requested partnership deal with Afrimash for the Finalists’ Forum. The Finalists forum, which held on the 4th of December 2019, was aimed at preparing final year veterinary students for the world market.
The event began with a presentation by Professor. J.O Olopade, Former Dean, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, The University of Ibadan, who spoke on Application for Scholarships and Grants. Sharing his experience on scholarships, Prof. Olopade stated the need for students to have positive willpower in the midst of rejection.

The CEO of Afrimash Company Limited, Dr. Ayoade Oyedotun, spoke with the finalists on Modern Day Entrepreneurship Opportunities For Veterinarians where he encouraged the finalist who had a drive for entrepreneurship.

Dr. Ayo also promised to support VNO annually for their finalist forum and magazine when needed.
Dr. Charles Nwishienyi, Head: Admin and Human Resource at Afrimash spoke on How to Write CVs and Application Letters giving the finalist tips and important details their documents need to contain.
