Nigerian Minister of Labor and Employment, Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige, has said that medical doctors are free to leave the country to practice their profession because we have more than enough of them.
He said this during a show on Channels TV. Read his comments below:
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.
There is nothing wrong, they go out to sharpen their skills, earn money and send them back home here. Yes, we have foreign exchange earnings from them, not from oil.
