As part of efforts to streamline all aspects of medical practice in Nigeria, the minister of state for health, Joseph Ekumankama, has charged hospitals under the Federal Ministry of Health to fully implement the provisions of the law governing the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN).

The minister urged laboratories in state hospitals to follow suit. He said with this, medical laboratories not registered with the MLSCN would be shut down.

The minister gave the charge when the MLSCN team, led by the registrar, Dr. Tosan Erhabor, visited him at the Ministry of Health headquarters in Abuja.
