The earliest idea to set up a medical school was mooted by Reverend Father Orshio Adasu when he became Governor of Benue State in 1992. He called the academics of Benue State origin to advise the government about setting up a university and Dr. Gyoh was in the subcommittee to advise on setting up a Faculty of Medicine to train doctors. It was an enormous undertaking in a State with hardly any income of its own; a State heavily reliant on the allocations from the Federal Government. Although Reverend Adasu succeeded in setting up the University, nothing was heard of a medical school until the idea was revived by Governor George Akume in 1998. He got the Jos-based Architect John Ameh to produce the preliminary drawings of the “Faculty of Medicine”. Governor Akume took Dr Gyoh and the architect one afternoon to the present site on which the College stands. The College edifice was designed by Architect John Ameh; but he apparently fell out with the government and another architect supervised the completion of the construction. After all these preliminary activities, the Governor got Professor Charles Vajime, the pioneer Vice-Chancellor of Benue State University (BSU) to set up a Steering Committee to advise the University on establishing a Faculty of Medicine.
