Medical Students Protest, Lock UNILAG Gate (Photos) by Ndlistic(m): 9:45pm On Feb 11, 2016


It was a day of student protests in Yaba on Wednesday.


While students of Yaba College of Technology were protesting the death of a colleague , pre-medical students of the University of Lagos also locked up the school’s main entrance in protest.

The premed students, comprising students of Medicine and Surgery, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, Dentistry, and Physiotherapy, were protesting the school’s management decision to change the criteria for promotion to 200L, mid-session.

The students said the new criteria, which was not disclosed, deprived many of them the chance to continue their programmes.


“When the list was finally released, many students who met the requirements as originally laid out in the handbook were not admitted to the College of Medicine,” a student said.


Joshua Ekula one of the students, at the brink of tears, described the new decision as unjust and disheartening. Another affected student who chose to remain anonymous vowed not to leave the premises till their plight is heard.



In reaction, the school authorities said it was only adhering to the fresh index system to regulate the quota allocated to individual university as introduced by the professional bodies regulating the study of medical programmes in the country.

This was contained in a statement signed by the university’s Information Unit head, Mr. Toyin Adebule.

The statement read in part:

‘This year, the professional bodies have insisted on the enforcement of the quota upon which accreditation is hinged and hence the college has had to conform. What this means is that only students that are indexed will be registered by the professional bodies to practice after graduation.

‘Senate at its meeting held on Wednesday, 27th January, 2016 had approved the implementation of the re-arrangement to conform to the professional bodies’ quota in order not to lose accreditation. This has regrettably meant that we have only been able to receive students into the college only up to the number the College of Medicine is allowed by the quota.

‘We recognise and regret that this has led to some students being unable to cross over into the College of Medicine or their course of choice. Consequently, all candidates who were not successful to be placed in programmes in CMUL have been allocated to appropriate programmes on the main campus in Akoka.’

The school gate was eventually opened about a few minutes to 7:00pm.

I used to think Medical students were the most serious and responsible set of students in any University setting.


Until I learnt that some were 'successful' Yahoo boys. cheesy

Quite frankly.. This management should be overhauled!! Their decision making is soo poor and never on time.
A good number of foundation students that got 6 points were not given even education. All the money they paid has entered voicemail

That was a silly action on the part of the students.

Was stuck in that traffic for hours. I had to call a friend to come pick my car while I left it behind so as not to miss a very important appointment.

They have every right to protest...... They should have informed them prior to the implementation of the new policy...

Imagine someone with a cgpa of 4.00 being denied of his dream course(MBBS)and given zoology instead.

Is unilag the only affected school?

I think its a thing of mis-information on the part of the school authority.. Why wasnt there enough pre-information to the student earlier on... The students have legitimate reasons to protest

-MBBS cutoff mark was placed at 4.11CGPA and people that made it crossed to idi Araba

-Unilag changed there course for them and the lists is at the general office.

A friend who is number 61 with 4.08 and two other guys was transferred to Dentistry...

Unilag can't move everyone to CMUL to avoid loosing accreditation, so they should stop whining when a chic from Botany had 4.80CGPA.
