The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) has called for the transfer of students of the Oba Okunade Sijuade College of Health Sciences, Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State, to other schools.

This follows the suspension of academic activities and the subsequent ban on admission of fresh students in the college.

In a press release issued at the end of its 3rd plenary meeting, held at the council house in Kaura District, Abuja, recently, Dr Abdulmumini Ibrahim, registrar of the council, disclosed that the MDCN had directed the institution to transfer all the existing students to other accredited medical schools.

“The decision is to help the students complete their programmes as they will no longer be allowed to participate in the council’s assessment examination. This resolution supersedes the MDCN’s advertisement on the list of medical schools recently published in the dailies,” he said.

According to him, the suspension placed on Oba Okunade Sijuade College of Health Sciences will last until all the identified inadequacies are corrected and the college is ready to resume the training of medical students.

It would be recalled that the news of the college’s suspension was announced to the public by Dr Ibrahim in April during the induction of 395 medical doctors and dentists in Abuja. The medical doctor told newsmen that MDCN revoked the accreditation of the medical school for failing to meet the required standards.

In another development, the MDCN has also reiterated its guidelines on registration of expatriate medical and dental doctors who are expected to complete their registration with the council before they are allowed to undertake any clinical duty in Nigeria.

“We cannot do this alone. Therefore we are using this opportunity to appeal to the chief executive of each state and other stakeholders to join the MDCN to enforce this regulation,” it noted.
