The Federal Government on Monday took drastic action to stamp out quackery and sub-standard practices in medical practice in the country.

The Federal Government announced a ban on all graduates of medicine from participating in the mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) until they have qualified as medical doctors and have secured practice licence from the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).

This decision was made public through the Registrar/Chief Executive of MDCN, Dr. Abdulmumini Ibrahim during a press briefing on Monday in Abuja. He said:-

“There has been increasing number of personal non-grata people who are not trained impersonating as medical doctor.

The NYSC has inundated us with complaints. Those who have completed their one year internship have been given certificates. Most corpers are sent to rural areas. They can only go to service upon presentation of their practice license.”
