Students of the Lagos State University College of Medicine, (LASUCOM), on Monday, staged a protest over the delay in completion of their programme.
The students led by the chairman, LASU Association of Dental Students, Mr. Sydon Agbor, stormed the office of the State Governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode to register their grieveances.
The aggrieved students noted that some of them had spent eight years instead of the stipulated six years, due to the non-accreditation of one of the programs called Medical and Dental program.
While speaking with newsmen, Agbor, the 600 level student lamented that the program is paramount adding that without the accreditation by the regulatory body, the final year students would not graduate.
“we are here to let the state’s governor, know the plight of the students in this institution; our future is at stake here. Some of us have spent eight years and yet there is no guarantee for our graduation without the accreditation of the programme, he stressed.
He, however, appealed to the governor to assist the institution with funds to acquire basic infrastructures and facilities to train students.
