2000 Medical Workers Leaving Nigeria Annually – Nma by Dentalgist: 11:17am On May 03
The Nigerian Medical Association has said that about 2000 medical workers leave the country annually to developed countries.

The National President of the Association, Francis Faduyile, said this in Abakaliki during the opening ceremony of the Annual General Conference/Delegates meeting of the association in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

He said the exodus necessitated the theme of the meeting which is ‘Skill Repatriation in the Health Sector: Turning Nigeria’s brain drain to brain gain’.

“The theme is apt at this point in time when brain drain in the health sector is at its peak, with about 2,000 health practitioners leaving the shores of Nigeria annually,” Mr Faduyile said

“We believe that this ugly situation can be turned to an advantage hence the need to bring this to the front burner for discussion and proffer a way out to the country’s advantage.”

Mr Faduyile also said politicians in the country do not seem to be worried about the trend because they do not have the necessary statistics and facts on the matter.

“Without intent at generating further controversy on the matters arising from the unfortunate remark by a senior cabinet member of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, who incidentally or coincidentally doubles as a senior member of the medical profession, it is our firm belief that this gathering would generate further affirmatory statistics and facts that possibly would be enough in convincing those policymakers at critical MDAs of government at all levels, including the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity who perhaps are yet to come to reality with the scientifically unambiguous deleterious aftermath of the worsening disparity between the health workforce in general and the population they are serving vis-à-vis the alarming rate of the emigration of these health/medical professionals on health outcomes as reflected by the various morbidity and mortality data.

“Then, they can join us in the clarion call for action and be committed to instituting necessary actions”, Mr Faduyile said.

The doctor was making reference to the labour minister, Chris Ngige, who recently made a controversial statement that appeared to support the emigration of Nigerian doctors.

The only thing that can stop me from leaving now is getting an oil company job that pays me 1.2m and above per month. My 1.8m/month is already assured in the UK.

Ngige said they could leave. That there are many other that'll replace them. What a riffraff for a Labour Minister.

The truth is the system can't absorb them all. We're in a shitty country where lots of doctors have to open private practices because they can't find jobs. And more keep graduating from schools. Some can't even find where to do housemanship.

Yes, we don't have enough doctors compared to citizens. But our failed democracy hasn't provided enough healthcare facilities, sufficient renumeration and other factors to keep them in the country.

But that Ngige statement na careless, stupid statement from a minister of labor.

Those that are left are the ones who have no opportunity to leave or are yet to perfect their plan.

But there's no cause for alarm cos our labour and employment minister said we have more than enough.
