One of the joys of being a graduate in Nigeria is to complete one's degree program without at the appropriate time without spending six years for a four-year course or ten for what ideally should take seven years.

In October,  the medical students of Ekiti State University flooded Twitter Nigeria with #stagnanteksumed to express their plights and beg the government of Ekiti State to find a solution to the accreditation problem of the school.

The students lamented that the Ekiti State University College of Medicine has been stagnant for years saying they have spent eight years and they are still in 400 levels.

Ideally, it takes seven years to study medicine but now that students of this school have spent eight years and still in 400 levels it, therefore, means they will spend three years more if the school is accredited before the end of this year.

Ekiti State University started operation in 2009 and ever since no student has graduated from the University's College of Medicine.

This is why the students cried out on social media to let the world know what they are going through.

Here are the some of the tweets of the students lamenting the stagnancy in the college.

The students have expressed their fear and plight but the school has still not been fully accredited.

Meanwhile, the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose recently announced death penalty for cult members on campus and terrorists in the state.

The announcement was made following deadly clash between two cult groups in the state in which two students reportedly died.
