Medical Vacation: Buhari likely to be treated by Nigerian professional in diaspora

There is a likelihood that some members of the Nigerian medical practioners in diaspora could form part of the team to treat President Muhammadu Buhari during his medical vacation in the United Kingdom, on his suspected Ear, Nose and Throat (E.N.T) ailment, reports ITRealms.

This indication was given by the former President of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and current vice president, Commonwealth Medical Association (CMA), Dr. Osahon Enabulele, asserting that Nigeria has in excess of 8000 medical doctors in diaspora.

According to him, over 3,000 Nigerian trained medical doctors are practicing in the United Kingdom alone, where the President was purported referred to, which makes it impossible for him to be treated without likelihood of a Nigerian doctor in the team.

Also in the United States of America, he said, there are over 5000 Nigerian trained medical doctors, amongst other foreign countries, stressing that most of whom left the shores of Nigeria on account of government’s perennial failure to address the various push and pull factors which have consistently driven this yearly brain drain phenomenon in Nigeria.

As at last count, he said, available records showed that last year (2015) alone, 637 medical doctors emigrated due largely to poor working conditions and health facilities, insecurity, unpredictable and poor funding of Residency Training Programme, uncompetitive wages and job dissatisfaction.

ITRealms recalls that Presidency had on Sunday informed Nigerians that President Buhari would be on a 10-day medical vacation to UK where he has been referred to see an E.N.T specialists.
