Dabiri-Erewa Decries Sack Of Resident Doctors, Bemoans State Of HealthLatest News Monday, August 18th, 2014
Chairman, House Committee on Diaspora, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa has described as questionable the sack by the Federal government last week, of 16,000 resident doctors in the Federal owned Hospitals across the state of the Federation.
The legislator representing Ikorodu Federal Constituency, Lagos, South Western Nigeria, in a press statement issued on Sunday, in Lagos, revealed among the serious dimensions of the “highly questionable sack of over 16,000 resident doctors” was the present emergency medical situation in the country.
Hon. Erewa observed that the government may differ from the striking doctors, still, terminating their appointment was an ill –considered option, while noting that earlier suspension residency programmes was equally a bad signal to the nation’s health sector.
The Federal Lawmaker who observed the government’s sack decision was a wrong and reckless approach, asserted that the historic mal – handling of Nigerian medical practitioners has resulted to their brain drain, leading to increasing population to the extent of forming themselves into associations in the United Kingdom (UK) and United States of America (USA).
