A group of Concerned Parents of Ukraine Medical Graduates of 2022 has called on the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria to stop misinforming the public about the authenticity of the medical degree certificates issued by Ukraine medical schools.
A statement by Mr Akeem Tajudeen and Mr Kelechi Obi, on Sunday, stated that in June 2022, the MDCN in its advertorial in a national daily informed the public that Medical and Dental Degree Certificates issued by Medical Schools from Ukraine from 2022 would not be honoured by the MDCN.
It added that the National Medical Commission of India recognised the medical degrees certificate of Ukraine issued on or before 30th June 2022 and the graduates had already registered and would be writing the assessment examination in December 2022.
The statement read, ‘‘The public notice can be confirmed from either the Indian Embassy in Nigeria or the Nigerian Embassy in India.
‘‘The MDCN may also verify this from its similar body, the National Medical Commission of India.’’
It also stated that it was unfair for the MDCN to misinform the public that Ukraine government took their citizens to the United Kingdom to complete their training programme.
