So the students that have been studying medicine for years plus all the strikes would have to start all over again and yet the Govt is drinking garri and suya...God dey.

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria has withdrawn the accreditation of the medical and dental schools in the University of Benin and Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State.

This was announced by the Chairman of MDCN, Dr. Roger Makanjuola, at the inauguration of the council’s new secretariat building in Abuja on Monday. Makanjuola said the accreditation was withdrawn because both universities had inadequate medical facilities and had more students than they could properly train.

He said, “In recent years, it had been observed that a number of training institutions have failed to maintain the prescribed standards and many have also admitted numbers of students far in excess of what they can meaningfully train.

“Recently, the accreditation of two training institutions was withdrawn. More are to follow. Let me take this opportunity to state that those institutions whose accreditation was withdrawn must stop admitting students. The council will also not register purported graduates from these institutions.”
