There are arguments for and against the bill but I'll tilt towards the Reps.
If you desire to practice in UK or US as a medical practitioner why not school there and pay huge fees for your training?
Why get your education in Nigeria with taxpayers money and end up not being useful for Nigeria?
The hospitals in Nigeria aren't equipped ;Yes. So also the airports, seaports, the roads are bad etc but if the country manages to train you to become a doctor it behoves on you to manage to practice there.

PS:
The same law should be applied to Agricultural Economists, Land Surveyors etc the day we start having shortage of those professionals in Nigeria.


Half measures to any thing in life creates room for argumentations and resistance. For instance, you have ten tablets for malaria treatment and after taking five, you stop because you are feeling better. The malaria strain will develop resistance to such drugs in future.

Half salary creates room for argumentations and someone will bear that brunt. What if we ban politicians from going abroad for anything while in office? Why denying others what you can't deny yourself?

Why not apply the bill to ALL NIGERIAN trained graduates then?

I've been waiting for this. If this is applied to everyone then it's fine. If not its discrimination everybody got the chance to have subsidised education not just doctors

The tuition fees to study MBBS in the UK ranges from £38,000 to £50,000 every year that’s about 35- 48 million every year… let Nigerian medical students pay half of that every year and see if our hospitals and medical schools won’t be the best in the world!!

I assume that medical school fees in Nigeria is about 50% more than the other courses. I know you won't see where I am going with this so let me break it down. If the medical student pays 25k per year , the physics students would have to pay at least 12k per year. ...


So rethink your argument. Its all about ratios.

I don't blame then either. Everyone would opt for a better life 100% of the time!

Otoh, I also understand the FG, they subsidize the training of medical students and other professionals by A LOT only for same professionals to run out after to another country after they have trained and spent on.


You guys make it sound as if the government is doing you a favour by subsidising education. Loool. Your educational fees has a direct correlation with your buying power as citizens. I.e poor country cheap education.

Everybody has access to cheap education and Even at that not everyone can afford it.

This is such nonsense! Do countries like Germany, Belgium, austria, Sweden etc with free or cheap education have low buying power too?

Common sense is free.

Why is that I wonder.

Two different sets of countries with cheap education. One has a higher buying power than the other yet education is cheap in both.
Go figure.
