The Abuja Medical School

It was really sad for me to hear that there are now 3 classes of medical students (class A, B, C) waiting to take their first professional MBBS exam at the University of Abuja.

While this university is still admitting and frustrating the young and bright in Nigeria who chooses to become doctors, both the Nigerian University Commission (NUC) and Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) have removed their accreditation.

My question is: Should schools be allowed to admit and collect school fees without accreditation? Should accreditation be given to a school without facility to run a medical school as was the stated reason for removing accreditation by NUC?
