Senate Moves To Create University Of Health And Medical Sciences In Suleja by JosEast(m): 9:28pm On Mar 03, 2021
The Senate, on Wednesday, passed for second reading, a bill seeking to establish the National University of Health and Medical Sciences in Suleja, Niger State.

In his lead debate, Senator Mohammed Sani Musa (APC, Niger East), who sponsored the bill, said the establishment of the institution had become imperative to create more access to higher health and medical studies in view of the large number of qualified candidates, who are annually stranded in their failed attempt in gaining admission into higher institutions in the state.

He said the establishment of the National University of Health and Medical Sciences would encourage the advancement of learning, as well as develop and offer academic and professional programmes leading to the award of diplomas, first degrees, postgraduate research and higher degrees with an emphasis on planning, adaptive, technical, maintenance, developmental and productive skills in the field of Medicine, biomedical engineering, scientific, and allied professional disciplines relating to health resources.

The Deputy Whip, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi (APC, Niger North), said the establishment of the institution would address the dearth of health professionals, and provide an opportunity for students who choose to specialize in the area of medical sciences.

He added that the University, when established, would “remove the frustrations of young Nigerians”, emphasizing that “this type of university is long overdue.”

The bill, after scaling the second reading, was referred to the Committee on Health for further legislative inputs.

Similarly, the Senate also considered a bill seeking to amend the University Teaching Hospitals (Reconstitution of Boards) Act 1985, to accommodate the Federal University of Lafia Teaching Hospital.

The University Teaching Hospitals (Amendment) Bill, 2021, which scaled second reading during plenary, was sponsored by Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura (APC, Nasarawa South).

Al-Makura noted that the inclusion of Lafia Teaching Hospital in the Principal Act was to give full recognition to the hospital.

According to the lawmaker, the proposed amendment when passed, would complete all the required legislative enactments to bring the Federal University Lafia Teaching Hospital into full operation.

“I wish to state that in compliance with Order 77(3) of the Senate Standing Orders, 2015 as amended, this bill when passed will have no immediate financial burden on the Federal Government treasury as the facilities for the immediate takeoff of the proposed Teaching Hospital for the Federal University, Lafia and its Management Board have been donated by the Nasarawa State Government,” Al-Makura added.

Also, the Red Chamber passed for second reading a bill seeking to revive an international hospital that would specifically focus on the treatment of leprosy, skin cancer and other skin related diseases.

The National Dermatology (Specialist) Hospital Bill, 2021 was sponsored by Senator Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (APC, Adamawa Central).

Leading debate on the bill, the lawmaker recalled that as far back as 1929, an International Hospital was established in Garkida, Adamawa State by the Church of the Brethren Mission (USA) for treatment of leprosy and other illnesses.

The lawmaker, however, lamented that 92 years after, “this noble work of providing tertiary health care at the reach of the common man was neglected and allowed to decay in vigor and extent, thereby became weak and inconsequential.”

Ahmed bemoaned the fact that the existing international tertiary dermatology hospital in Garkida Adamawa State has been conspicuously left out in the federal government’s drive to provide tertiary health care services to Nigerians.

When you consider the shortage in medically inclined grads, this is a good idea, especially if admission into it isn't by quota. Why force a potential and aspiring doctor into medical lab science or bio chemistry or even accounting?; Let them go to a medical only school that's well equipped and let's have more of what we crucially need as against saturating the labour market with accountants and lawyers we already have enough of_?


When will they create engineering and science uni?

The issue here is..... Lack of maintenance of current federal medical schools..
Why create more sub-standard schools... When you can strengthen the ones on ground.

2ndly, why create schools that allow anyone within their walls rather than pick the best brains.. This lack of competition aka quota system leads to an overall watering down of professional excellence...

Don't politicise learned professions.. Water will always find its own level...


Not everyone japa... Not everyone stays foreign.. Some go off to learn and return to implement locally their expertise.

Must it always be in the north? What is wrong in establishing it in any other region with no single federal presence.

OK even though we still have so many colleges of medicine and health in most federal and state universities. Just hope our public hospitals can be well equipped and not this wall paintings and beautification.

Setting up multiple tertiary health institution without an efficient primary health system is like building on a marshy ground that will soon cave in. There are no facilities and manpower in the health center because of poor funding and the government believes it can fund these tertiary hospitals that are springing up

Nigeria's problem is geopolitical agendas. The ones we already have are not even functioning at full capacity we're creating another.

Same reason Ajaokuta steel factory has not produced one ounce of steel till date.

Good move but they also need to open more world-class health-care facilities so that there shall be no need of them going abroad to get treatment.
