Nigerians React Over Senate Approval For Six New Universities of Medical Sciences in Nigeria

Nigerians have continued to lament on the recent approval by the Nigerian Senate for the establishment of New Medical Sciences Universities in each of the Six Geopolitical Zones of the country, describing it as misplaced priority, considering the poor state of the available Universities and the lingering ASUU Strike which have been directly attributed to the Governments inability/refusal to adequately fund the Universities.

Vanguard Nigeria had reported that the Nigerian Senate, on Tuesday 5th April 2022, passed a bill seeking to establish a Federal University of Medical Sciences and Biomedical Technology across the six geo-political zones in Nigeria. The bill was passed during plenary after the chamber considered a report on it by the Committee on Health (Secondary and Tertiary).

The Chairman of the Committee, Senator Yahaya Oloriegbe (Kwara Central) , in his presentation, said the establishment of the University in the six zones of the country would address the dearth in admission of students aspiring to study Medicine and Allied Sciences in Nigeria.

The lawmaker also noted that the Universities when established would supply the much needed manpower in healthcare service sector as well as boost income generation and ensure economic growth.

“When passed into law, the huge gap in doctor-patient ratio as well as in medical research and production of pharmaceutical products will be abridged.

“The universities will also advance healthcare delivery in Nigeria through research and innovation, training and development of the health sector”, he said.

The Federal University of Medical Sciences and Biomedical Technology bill was passed by the chamber after a clause-by-clause consideration of the report on it by the Committee of the Whole.

This development has however faced condemnation by some concerned Nigerians who are of the view that there was no need to establish new Universities when the old ones are not well funded, a situation which has led to the production of half baked graduates in Nigeria and Incessant ASUU strike which is still on and have lasted for more than 50 days now and the Government is not doing anything meaningful about it.
