The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has warned students intending to study medicine in Ukraine to be weary of fake medical schools.
In a statement in Abuja, yesterday, Adewole charged intending students to be sure of the authenticity of the institution before seeking for admission.
He further warned intending Nigerian students seeking admission to institutions in Ukraine to note the development before submitting their applications to the affected institution.
The Minister disclosed that the Federal Government was recently intimated by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health that it could not guarantee the quality of education delivered to both Ukrainian and foreign students by the Odessa National Medical University.
According to him, the decision by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health was based on the result of an International Monitoring Study of Quality of Higher Medical Education conducted in Ukrainian Medical Universities on March 25, 2019, from which the Odessa Medical University exempted itself.
