Senate passes bill to establish university of medical sciences across the country

A bill seeking to establish a Federal University of Medical Sciences and Biomedical Technology across the six geo-political zones in Nigeria has been passed by lawgivers in the upper chambers of the National Assembly.

The bill was passed during grand on Tuesday, April 5, after the house considered a report by the Committee on Health ( Secondary and Tertiary).

In his donation, the chairman of the Committee, Senator Yahaya Oloriegbe (Kwara Central), said the establishment of the University in the six zones of the country would address the deficit in the admission of scholars aspiring to study Medicine and Allied Sciences in Nigeria.

Senator Oloriegbe explained that the institutions, when established would supply the demanded force in the healthcare sector as well as in medical exploration and product of pharmaceutical products in the country. He added that the institutions would also produce employment.

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.
