Doctors free to leave Nigeria - Reno Omokri replies Chris Ngige lailasnews

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige earlier today said doctors are free to leave Nigeria, as we have more than enough in the country.

Speaking on Channels TV Sunrise Daily, Ngige said;

“I’m Not Worried, We Have Surplus (Doctors), if we have a surplus, we export. I was taught Biology and Chemistry by Indian teachers in my secondary school days.

“They are surplus in their country. We have a surplus in the medical profession in our country. I can tell you this. It is my area, we have excess. We have enough, more than enough, quote me.”

“Those guys go there, they are better trained because of the facilities they have there. Eventually, I know a couple of them who practise abroad but set up medical centres back home. They have CAT scan, MRI scan which even the government hospitals cannot maintain. So, I don’t see any loss.

“Brain drain will only be inimical when for instance neurosurgeons travel and we don’t have neurosurgeons here.”

In reaction, Reno Omokri tagged the statement as a show of arrogance, he wrote on Twitter;

What type of arrogance is this? We have enough doctors? Is that why your boss, President @Mbuhari, spent 1 year and 39 days abroad, including over 6 months in a UK clinic? This government is a punishment on the Nigerian people
