******Update ******


Every practitioner is expected to pay their Practising Fees on or before 31st December.

This payment is free on remita platform. There is no Building Levy requirement on remita platform. Please generate remita for the amount due (ie 20k for those up to 10 year standing, and 10k for those below 10 years standing) and pay at once at any Bank.

It is only those that go to the MDCN portal to pay that see the Building Levy requirement. The case of Building Levy is still in the Federal High Court of Nigeria and the issue of validation and insurance have now been added to the battle. Plaintiff is now asking the Court to declare that portal validation of Practicing Fees is illegal. The use of MDCN portal for Cornerstone Insurance Policy sales to doctors is now included in the modified suit.

All the medical doctors are hereby encouraged to generate remita at no cost and pay their Practising Fees in any bank on or before 31st December 2019. The issue of going to MDCN portal to upload the RRR number (called validation) shall be sorted out after the judgment of the Federal High Court.

  1. i have paid NMA building levy which was approved and added to my list of payment on MDCN portal. i also paid 2020 annual license fee via remita but was constantly directed to pay the NMA building level anytime i attempted to add my RRR annual license to my profile on MDCN portal. this is a complaint!

  2. i have uploaded my cdp 20 points and i have paid for the 2020 annual practicing license via remita on 2nd December, 2019 but anytime i try to add my RRR receipt number for the annual license, i was directed to pay for NMA building levy.

  3. I tried all I was directed to do in cyber cafe, but yet d page is still directing me to NMA building level each time I attempted to enter the RRR number. Please something should be done to rectify the problem.

  4. I paid for the renewal of my 2020 practising licence at a cyber through remita but my name was wrongly entered, as Okoro Jeremiah Okoro. Please kindly correct it for me. Thanks.

  5. I tried to pay for my full registration and permanent licence via ATM online yesterday. I have been debited but I wasn’t sent receipt and also not reflecting on my payment page that I have successful paid. What is the way out. Thanks

  6. I thought the blog was about not paying NMA building levy as th case is still in court. why ask him to pay again before he or she proceeds

  7. Thank you Udomoh!

    Please for someone whose license expired 31st December 2018, and still within 10 years of practice, kindly let me know how much he is to pay for up-to-date renewal and what are the steps to be followed online for such renewal?

    I would really appreciate urgent reply to my concern above.


      1. Thanks once again Udomoh. You’ve been very helpful.

        I was wondering if it’s necessary to still pay that of 2018 considering the fact that the license actually expired on the 31st of December 2018 being the very last day of that year?

  8. Dr Udomoh thanks once again but I still have a little challenge.

    In the steps above, that place you said you we should go to the mdcn website and complete our profile. When I did I was completely lost as couldn’t even find a place like that in the website. Please how do I go about it? Is there any other mdcn website apart from that one?

    Lastly, while paying the license fee I mistakenly typed ‘License fee’ instead of ‘Practising license fee’ for each of the years I was paying for. I hope it’s not a big deal.

    Thanks once again for your anticipated help.

  9. Good day dr Udomoh,
    Thank you for the clarification so far, I just wanted to run some questions through you.
    1. My practicing license expired Dec 31, 2015, as I am less than 10 years in practice, I’m I to pay 10,000 per year? making it 50,000 naira.
    2. When making this payment through remita, I’m I to put 50,000 instead of 10,000?
    3. As I am currently not in Nigeria, I registered on the MDCN website and was told to allow 24 hours for activation, which was 5 days ago and yet still not activated. I have tried contacting the MDCN office multiple times through the numbers available online to no avail. Please can you advise on the best step to take to solve this and renew my license?
    Thank you so much

  12. I thought you said there was a 100% surcharge for late payments? So why are you giving figures without the surcharge for inquiries about late payments?
