The Benue State University College of Health Sciences can now graduate it’s first set of Doctors after securing full clinical accreditation by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCN.
This development is coming 12 years after the school was established.
Benue.com.ng reports that the news was disclosed by Governor Samuel Ortom at a two-day executive retreat holding at New Banquet Hall of the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi.
It will be recalled that the state government secured a loan of N10bn, part of which was meant for the purchase of medical equipments and others requirements in order to secure accreditation of the BSU College of Benue Science.
It is common knowledge that students of the college have spent 12 years for a course that was meant to last for just 6 years.
Ortom also expressed hope that the state school of Nursing and midwifery will also regain it’s accreditation status which was lost three years ago.
