Scores have been reportedly killed in a fuel tanker explosion at the Amoke village of Apa Local Government Area in Benue State.

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) has finally issued practicing licenses to three foreign doctors at Vedic Lifecare Hospital in Lekki, Lagos.

The Lagos Health Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) sealed the facility on October 29, 2021.

The state government sanctioned Vedic after the three expatriate medical personnel were unable to produce their certificates of registration with the MDCN.

In a statement on Sunday, the management noted that the hospital has over 17 doctors, all duly qualified and licensed to practice in Nigeria.

Vedic disclosed they have doctors with over 20 to 30 years of experience internationally and all their documents are endorsed by the medical authorities in India and elsewhere.

In the case of the trio, the hospital said their applications had been submitted to the MDCN and all requirements complied; the Government of India through the Indian High Commission Nigeria vetted them.

Vedic regretted that due to reasons beyond its control, there was some delay in the issuance and procurement of their license by the MDCN.

The statement said since the closure, the management has worked closely with the MDCN.

“We are pleased to report that, with their support, as well as that of the Indian High Commission, we have successfully completed the registration of these three expatriate medical personnel and their practising licenses have now been issued,” it said.

“Vedic Lifecare Hospital is committed to the highest standards of professionalism and ethics and would never jeopardise the health and well-being of any of our patients by engaging unqualified personnel.”

Vedic insists its relationship with MDCN, HEFAMAA, and the Lagos Ministry of Health remains strong, recalling previous partnerships including during the COVID-19 pandemic when it served as an isolation and treatment centre.

The hospital accepted the admonition of the Ministry of Health and HEFAMAA in good faith, adding that lessons have been learnt from recent developments.

“We apologise to the public and assure every Nigerian of our commitment to improved service delivery and healthcare to all our patients.

“We would never compromise on our values or engage in, consent to, or participate in any scheme that compromises the health and safety of our patients regardless of the limitations and circumstance”, Vedic assured.
