Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole has suggested that medical students who must proceed on housemanship as part of their training should not have any problem with placement.
The minister stated this today at the Senate Plenary before the Committee of the Whole where he was summoned to explain the reasons for the poor state of healthcare infrastructure across the country.
Professor Adewole said they recognize the housemanship problem, noting that the lifespan of the provisional license is two years, which is why they started central placement.
According to him they have four thousand, five hundred spaces and produce about four thousand house doctors every year.
Prof. Adewole condemned what he described as the uncontrolled manner in which state governments have been erecting health facilities in their respective domains.
He warned that if state governments do not heed his advice, the Federal Government would take over all health care infrastructures in Nigeria.
