BY ALO ABIOLA, Ado Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has expressed confidence that the State University College of Medicine would get the final nod of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria to be able to graduate its first set of medical doctors.
The governor re-affirmed its administration’s commitment towards ensuring full accreditation of the Ekiti State University College of Medicine to allow students admitted in the college ten years ago graduate without further delay.
He spoke during the courtesy call of members of Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria to his office in Ado Ekiti who were in the state to inspect facilities at the College as part of the process for its final accreditation.
Fayemi said with the efforts of the state government and the University towards ensuring improved facilities the University will certainly achieved its aim of getting her programmes accredited.
According to him, “This is something that is long overdue as you can see that ten years is a long time and for these students to have been in school waiting to have this over with. Lets hope that by the time you finish this accreditation they won’t have any reason not to receive positive nod from you that will not allow them to become properly recognized medical doctors.
“For us its been a long journey, it is unfortunate, but I must really thank all of our professionals in charge, they all contributed in their own way to bring us to this point”.
‘’I believe the students would give a good account of themselves, I met a few of them in the course of their professional studies and I think they are eager to complete this process. I believe on our part we would do everything to ensure that we support the university and the college of medicine to achieve the purpose.
