The “Japa Fever” or the “Japa Syndrome” is now our everyday motto as more and more Nigerian students find themselves searching for greener pastures as regards educational standards and time. Time is fast running as federal universities had hit with its 8-months long ASUU strike. While this was currently on going, a lot of students have been forced to relocate while a lot are still looking for the right location to ‘japa’ to. The students who feel like they are on the losing end are those who are out to study medicine along with those from other courses that take years and years to see through; which is why keeping to time is quite beneficial. 

Medicine students in Nigeria have now started looking for scholarships abroad that cater to their educational needs and are timely in delivering.
