The Ekiti State University (EKSU) has graduated its first set of medical students, 10 years after they were matriculated. 

The students had spent more than the required six years because the school’s college of medicine was not accredited by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).

At its third plenary on June 13, however, MDCN considered the report of a 14-member visitation team led by T.A.B Sanusi, its registrar, sent to inspect the facilities at EKSU’s college of medicine. 

The college was subsequently accredited, and the students participated in the final professional MBBS examination which held between July 8 and July 19.

“The released result indicated 100 percent pass, as all the 43 students presented passed, with one distinction,” Bode Olofinmuagun, the institution director of information, said in a statement on Saturday.  

“Reacting to the performance of the Medical students, the Acting Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor (Mrs) Olubunmi Ajayi expressed joy and congratulated the first set of Medical Doctors to be produced by the University.

“The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria recently paid a visit to the University and gave a five year approval for the accreditation of the medical programme.

“With this development, the medical students are to be fully inducted into the medical profession in a few days.”

In June, Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, promised that the government will retain graduates of EKSU’s college of medicine willing to work in the state-owned health facilities.
