These 4 States Produce Highest Number Of Medical Students - JAMB by nwabobo: 9:15am On Mar 11, 2018
With more universities opening across the country in the last decade, the number of students gaining admissions into specialised and competitive degree courses has steadily grown.

But when it comes to Medicine, four states have dominated admission trends for at least five years, consistently trouncing the other 32 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

The states are Imo, Anambra, Delta and Enugu.

Between 2011 and 2015, these states had more students gaining admission to study Medicine than any other state, data from the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) show.

In the five years, the four states — except Anambra — remained in the top five, an analysis of the data by PREMIUM TIMES has shown. Anambra took second position for four years, before dropping to sixth position in 2015.

Only two other states managed to break into the top five briefly. Osun took fifth position twice and fourth position once; while Edo took third position once, and fifth position once.

The data, covering 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, are for students admitted through test-based examinations conducted by JAMB.

JAMB’s admission process is guided by merit, university catchment area and grants advantage to educationally-less developed states.

The JAMB data were verified and validated by the National Bureau of Statistics, the bureau said.
Together, they provide an important glimpse into how the nation’s 36 states and Abuja compete when benchmarked by university admissions into various academic disciplines each year.

PREMIUM TIMES analysis is focused on three of the most competitive courses: Medicine, Engineering and Law.

In follow-up reports, this newspaper will evaluate the trend in Engineering and Law.

For Medicine, while Imo had 1,940 students admitted into various universities in 2011, Anambra followed with 1,536 and Enugu was third with 1,280. Delta came fourth with 1,137 and Abia was fifth with 931 students.

In 2012, the four states again made the top five. Imo emerged first with 1,841 students, Anambra followed with 1,473 and Delta came third, while 1,305, Enugu came fourth with 1,247.

That year, Osun placed fifth with 958 students admitted into Medicine.

Imo continued its leadership of the chart in 2013 with 2,395 students admitted to study Medicine, while Anambra again followed with 1,645 and Delta came third with 1,618. Enugu came fourth with 1,422. Fifth position was snatched by Edo with 1,256 students.

In 2014, Imo had 1,588 students, Anambra followed with 1,511; Delta came third with 1,170, Enugu came fourth with 1,161.

Osun reclaimed the fifth position with 1,146.

In 2015, positions changed significantly, with Delta jumping to first position with 1814 students.

Imo dropped to second with 1,727, while Edo came third with 1,510. Osun was fourth with 1,447 and Enugu, with 1,390, took fifth.

For the first time in five years, Anambra slumped to sixth position.

Hassan Soweto, who coordinates a civil rights group, Education Rights Campaign, said the admission pattern reflects the funding of education in the country.

Mr. Soweto assessed the states doing better as “one-eyed kings in the land of the blind”, saying even they have poor funding for education.

“It means that some states are doing a bit better while some are doing poorly in the midst of crisis because it does not mean the sector is well funded,” he said.

At the lowest rung of the admission table are FCT, Yobe, Zamfara and Jigawa.

FCT had the least in the five years with only 24 students admitted into Medicine in 2011.

It had 20 students in 2012, 46 students in 2013, 38 students in 2014 and 40 students in 2015.

Six other states also had a poor record of students who got admission to study Medicine.

In 2011, Yobe had 64 students, followed by Zamfara with 68 students. Jigawa had 74 while Taraba had 82 students.

Similarly in 2012, Yobe had 36 students that studied Medicine, followed by Bauchi with 48 students, Adamawa with 56 students and Zamfara had 69 students.

In 2013, Zamfara had 117 students who got admitted to study Medicine, followed by Adamawa with 121 students. Yobe had 124 students while Taraba had 128 students.

In 2014, Zamfara had 49 students who got admission to study medicine. Zamfara had 49 students, Kebbi had 78, Nassarawa had 106 and Taraba had108 students.

Also in 2015, Zamfara had 54 students who got admission to study medicine , kebbi had 95 students, sokoto had 105 and Jigawa had 111 students.

Mr. Soweto said the resources provided for states that are educationally disadvantaged in the northern states especially are not used for what they are provided for.

According to him, the pattern reflects the decline in funding in the northern state, decayed facilities in schools in the far north and quality of teachers in schools.

There must be something this Igbo people are doing right. The more you suppress them, the more they grow and develop.

If you leave them unchecked, we may just wake up one day to find they've taken over the country.

What would have happened if they didn't fight a war or if Biafra was allowed to go?

Producing without corresponding job opportunities, that is why developed countries pick them up and give them better opportunities. Like someone once said that the rate at which Nigerian doctors leave to seek greener pastures abroad, by 2022 we might be left with small doctor,doctor Sid and witch doctors.

When are we going to stop talking along tribal lines? Even those who share the same villages with Presidents, richest Nigerians and most educated individuals had not benefited one kobo! Nobody decides where God created him or her. We have no say about the continent, country, tribe or family where we found ourselves at all. Only mentally shallow humans are racists and tribalists. I have look at the skins of humans, I am yet to see a single WHITE or BLACK human. This shows that humans cannot even properly identify their own colours

I am an Igbo man. But I wont celebrate this.

Every nation usually have an ideology. This ideology is their driving force and it is what propels them as a nation for surmount all challenges that come their way.

While American political ideologies are variations on classical liberalism. As a result, these ideologies tend to be very similar: Almost everyone in the United States, for example, believes in limited government, the free market, and individual liberty, the British Empire was founded and maintained for purposes of trade and done so by private interest with the government providing support and encouragement where and when needed. The Swedish ruling party is Høyre. The party is committed to fiscal free market policies, including tax cuts and relatively little government involvement in the economy. It does, however, support the continued existence of the Norwegian welfare state.

But in our dear nation we have been talking about UNITY. Our ideology has been UNITY.

In Oct 2018, Nigeria will be 58 years. If this nation had been a butterfly, unfortunately we are still in eggs stage. We have not even hatched to the Larva stage.

It is true that these states produced the highest number of Medical Doctors. By the questions I will ask are

1. How many of them stay back to practice in NIgeria.
2. Most of these brilliant minds are subjected to be under so called graduates from educationally less developed states. Why?
3. After the hectic and arduous task of obtaining these degrees, what is the state of hospitals they will later work in?

My position is that we should not celebrate this. It is not an achievement because even the elites do not even appreciate the efforts of these students.

Why? You may ask. The case of our President and his son comes to mind. No Nigerian doctor is qualified to treat our elites. So why wasting our time? They wont fund our education.

WAY FORWARD

Let us all be involved. 2019 is by the way. Another avenue to exercise our franchise. How many youths on Nairaland have obtained their PVC?
And if you have obtained, are ready to vote?
Lets get our nation back.

Most of these our politicians have less than 20 years to live, but their actions can affect us for a century.

Honestly Imo people are too educated and classy. Even the ones that didn't proceed to university are very enlightened. I really like them. They are quite different. Generally Igbos strive for the best. God bless all Igbos all around the world

When we see Nigerians celebrated around the world for diff reasons, they are either from the East, west or South

First legislature elected in Italy, England.
Doctors in the US, UK winning awards.
Best students in foreign universities
Even in sports

Well, at least the north's got the richest man in Africa though
