«In nursery school, we learnt the 36 states and capital, during internship hunt we visit them.Rx Dimonyeka.
Fmc Zamfara has called their successful candidates on phone to begin work on the 6th of march 2017.It cuts across all the departments who applied for internship at the hospital.
Below are the highlights of our conversations with those who applied at fmc Gusau.
Dr O: So we are now in the era of appointment by phone calls and not pasting of results. May God save us.
Medlab Intern C: They called people on phone yesterday, my friend were among those they called. Anyone that didn’t receive the call from them means that they dont have a stronger connection because 55 persons wrote the exams for medical laboratory science but only 9 interns were chosen because they had the strongest connection and they were called yesterday in the morning . The rest 41 prospective interns are still on hustling mood….👣👣👣👣
They also called all the departments yesterday too… I think Houseofficers were just fifteen (15) out of 84 that applied😞😞
Pharm m: No be dis people wey we pay 3k application fee??
Medlab c: Lolsss na dem oooo 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂.. Dats naija for uuuuuuuuuu.. There was no merit at all atleast that would have been a little bit okkkkk but the wuruwuru was just too much in it blinded their eyes to see that people actually sacrificed their time and did excellently well for it…. But because they focused more on their books and didnt have connection, their names were scratched out just lyk that… Anyways sha na Godwin😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
Electronic m: Its well even in a dry well, seems the northern hospitals have been corrupted too.
Med lab c: Asin ehnnnnn…. I surprise ooooo…Cause i knew that they were far better than the east, South and West… But now i think the corruption is everywhere.
Electronic M: Corruption is now endemic in Nigeria.
Medlab C: Initially it was a free form before it was increased to 5k and then later decreased to 3k.
Ijecks: But many paid 5k na
Medlab C: Yes they did ooo before it was decreased to 3000 thousand naira only
Dr A : Maybe them no know how to price things.
Ijecks: Lol why u no price oouth.
Pharm : They have constant price there.Is not pepper one can price o
Dr A:you may be Surprised, some people didn’t pay anything.
Pharm Is: Ain’t you guys tired of still talking about that wrong hospital.
Pharm M: Make una relax, unimaid neva advertise 😂😂😁😁
Dr E: hmmm. I no understand dem o.
Dr E : still wondering
Dr E: My brother the thing still dey confuse me sef
Ijecks: Congratulations Dr E and yes he was called and he also got Fmc Zamfara on merit without knowing anyone there.
In as much as we complain of many hospitals using connections and money to pay for slots for Internship placement. Merit list is still in existence but the percentage of merit is quite low.
Imagine people traveling from afar to apply in fmc Gusau , pay for application form and still travel again just to write their exams in a country where we are harrased by harsh economic realities and repressed with bad leadership.
Zamfara state is like a different country altogether because of distance and with the amount they collected from unemployed graduates who are saddled with external unexpected expectations.
Its Unfair and to those who are still in the hussle #Teamnevergiveup#.
