Buhari should lead by Example by patronizing Nigerian doctors and facilities – BBC

A well known Nigerian doctor has made an accusation on President Muhammadu Buhari of not keeping to his promise to put a stop to “medical tourism” by seeking treatment in the UK.

In 2013 alone, Nigerians spent $1bn (£690m) on foreign medical trips, which in most cases were considered unnecessary,  said Dr Osahon Enabulele.

He also made it known that Nigerian Politicians are mostly treated by Nigerian doctors in the UK.

Dr Enabulele, vice-president of the Commonwealth Medical Association, said it was a “national shame” that Mr Buhari went to the UK for treatment when Nigeria had more than 250 ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists, as well as a National Ear Centre.

If Buhari wants things to change then he should as well lead by example and patronize Nigerian doctors and facilities, and make sure that officials of the government do not go abroad on “frivolous” medical trips, he added.

The UK had more than 3,000 Nigerian-trained doctors, and the US more than 5,000, Dr Enabule said, accusing the government of failing to address the brain drain by improving working conditions and health centres.

Mr Buhari, in a speech delivered on his behalf to the Nigeria Medical Association in April, said the government’s hard-earned cash would not be spent on treating officials overseas, especially when Nigeria had the expertise.

Nigeria is one of Africa’s biggest oil producers but most of its citizens live in poverty.

  1. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  2. Hey there! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I
    needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a
    lot of work? I’m brand new to running a blog but I
    do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog
    so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

  7. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just
    wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how
    do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you
    can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much
    appreciated.
