Fayemi assures Ekiti varsity’s medical college of full accreditation
Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has reiterated his administration’s commitment towards ensuring full accreditation of the Ekiti State University College of Medicine.
Fayemi said efforts were on to allow students admitted into the college 10 years ago to graduate without further delay.
The governor was optimistic that the college would get the final nod of the council and would be able to graduate its first set of medical doctors soon.
Fayemi had earlier in the year presented a coaster bus to the college and released funds for the upgrade of some facilities needed to get the final accreditation.
The governor, while hosting members of Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria who were in the state to inspect facilities at the college as part of the process for its final accreditation, berated the delay in the college’s accreditation.
He stressed that it was wrong for any government to have delayed accreditation for so long while putting the career of the students in jeopardy.
Fayemi added that many universities that did not have the number of professionals as the Ekiti State University were turning out their students regularly.
”For us, it’s been a long journey; it is unfortunate. But, I must really thank all 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.”
