By 1975, Dr R. Okujaye and Dr L. Odogwu, both with training and the ORL fellowship from the UK, arrived and commenced service in ENT in the hospital. It is greatly to their credit that they were able to arrange for procurement and provision of quite a good set of both diagnostic and surgical operative instruments. They left soon after following failure to accept terms of conversion as University Lecturers. A retired Indian ENT specialist, Dr Arulpragasam had been holding forth briefly before Dr. F. O. Ogisi took up appointment with the University of Benin Teaching Hospital in 1978 following the completion of his PG ENT training in England acquiring the FRCS Ed. initially as senior registrar in ENT, then later, Lecturer/Consultant.
