Whatever is remaining of the embarrassing carcass, that is passed off, as public (actually all) education in Nigeria, this one
, which inevitably will concern loads of hapless medical students out there is rather damning.
Its disgraceful too.
It is especially so, when you consider just how many thousands of Nigerians, and Nigeria trained medical professionals currently ply their respective trades in the UK's NHS
, at the General Medical Council website, apparently the UK folks have decided to de-list Ten, Nigerian universities as acceptable qualifications, on which registration or license may be sought in the UK. [effective on all post 2010 graduates of these varsities.]
The unfortunate ten:
- Ambrose Ali University
- Ebonyi State University
- Igbinedion University College of Health Sciences
- Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH)
- Nnamdi Azikiwe University
- University of Benin
- University of Jos
- University of Maiduguri
- University of Nigeria
- University of Port Harcourt
And the list features Igbinedion university!!!.
To think Igbinedion University, is a private school, which theoretically should be well funded[what single useful advantage may one put a lot of looted funds, if not a university? ] and monitored renders you speechless.
Gradually, Nigeria as we know it, is going down the drain. That in itself, is not necessarily evil. The contraption of a country belongs to no one anyways.
It is pointless to recollect that some 40 or so odd years ago, the same GMC automatically registered you, once you graduated from any Nigrian medical college...That was a long time ago.
In the meantime, pray for those young lads out there, paying with their lives and times, and scarce funds through sub-standard medical education.
Or if you are more realistic, go buy them relevant learning materials from Amazon.com.
The future is grim...
