Protesting University of Benin Medical students this morning shut the gate of the institution and blocked the Benin-Lagos Expressway causing traffic gridlock.
The students took to the streets because they said the Nigerian Medical and Dental Council withdrew accreditation of the medical school of the university on the ground that the university had not been complying with the directives of the admission and training of the medical students and that the number of medical students in the institution was more than what was approved for it by the council.
It was alleged that other universities whose medical schools are not accredited are sending their final year students to the University of Benin, thereby increasing the number of students beyond the approved limit.
The implication of this is that students who should have graduated this year will not be able to sit for their final year examination as a result of the withdrawal of accreditation.
Thus the students mobilised and blocked the main entrance to the institution.
Some of the aggrieved students who reacted said the institution did not come up with any information about their fate.
Efforts to speak with the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Obarentin E.A., proved abortive as his phone was switched off.
The Divisional Police Officer of the Ugbowo Police Division in the state, Mr. Sokoya Abiodun, said he had deployed his men to control the situation.

Bad news really........what do they expect these students to do, after spending almost 7 yrs in school?..........

I wonder if it is the students fault that the school is admitting more than it should...........

Well, when two elephants fight, only the grass will suffer............we mustnt try and cure the headache by cutting off the head.......that is not done!

If a university loses accreditation there must be something seriously wrong
with the quality of education at that institution. It is obvious that the university
administrators is not doing their jobs and need to be replaced.
There is also the problem of inadequate funding by the federal Government.
I understand that the University is a Federal Government university.

How can the public trust the doctors trained in that University if the training is
substandard? Poorly trained doctors can not be expected to deliver superior
medical care.

I agree with you there.
What is to be done with these students?
They are in a complicated situation.
